Transfer Agreements

To better encourage and facilitate the transfer of Mercer County Community College students to Temple University, Temple and Mercer County Community College have established the following transfer agreement:

Guaranteed Admissions

The Guaranteed Admissions agreement between Temple and Camden County College conditionally admits students to Temple at the same time they are admitted to a community college, and provides the opportunity for merit scholarships to Temple for eligible students. Interested students must enroll in the Guaranteed 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.
