Delaware County Community College-Temple Transfer Information
Generally, Temple accepts academic, college-level courses beyond the developmental level completed with a grade C or better, from schools with regional accreditation. Credit is only awarded in academic subjects with a corresponding Temple department. Duplicate credit in the same course is not awarded in any case. Whenever possible, credit is allowed for courses completed more than 10 years before the date of admission. Courses evaluated for transfer from colleges and universities with different credit systems (e.g. quarter hours, units, etc.) are converted to semester hours (i.e., 2 quarter hour credits are equivalent to 1.5 semester hour credits; 3 quarter hour credits are equivalent to 2.0 semester hour credits; 4 quarter hour credits are equivalent to 2.5 semester hour credits). For more information about transfer credit evaluation see: Credit Evaluation.
To better encourage and facilitate the transfer of Delaware County Community College (DCCC) students to Temple University, Temple and DCCC have established the following transfer agreements:
The Dual Admissions agreement between Temple and Delaware County Community College conditionally admits students to Temple at the same time they are admitted to DCCC, and provide the opportunity for merit scholarships to Temple for eligible students. Interested students must enroll in the Dual Admissions program before attaining 30 credits, including credits from any colleges previously attended. Students are then admitted to Temple upon attaining their associate's degrees at the community college. Click here for more details about Dual Admissions with Delaware County Community College
