Transfer Agreements

To better encourage and facilitate the transfer of Northampton Community College students to Temple University, Temple and Northampton Community College have established the following articulation agreements:


Dual Admissions

The Dual Admissions agreement between Temple and Northampton Community College conditionally admits students to Temple at the same time they are admitted to Northampton Community College, and provides the opportunity for merit scholarships to Temple for eligible students. Interested students must enroll in the Dual Admissions program before completing 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 Northampton Community College.


GenEd-to-GenEd and Core-to-Core Transfer Agreements

GenEd-to-GenEd and Core-to-Core Transfer agreements accept -- upon Temple evaluation and approval -- the general education requirements of approved associate degrees in lieu of Temple's Core or GenEd requirements. Students entering Temple with an approved Associate degree are identified upon admission to or enrollment in the University and their fulfillment of the General Education by a GenEd Transfer Agreement is noted on pertinent student records.

The following Northampton Community College associate degrees are approved:

GenEd-to-GenEd: This agreement applies to students who first enroll at Temple for or after the fall 2010 semester, having received an Associate degree in one of the following programs at Northampton in or after 1993:

Transfer students should be aware that GenEd-to-GenEd and Core-to-Core transfer relate only to University General Education requirements. All requirements of Temple’s schools and colleges and major programs of study remain in force.


Program-to-Program Agreement

A program-to-progam agreement provides accurate curricular information for prospective transfer students and their academic advisors by lining up associate degree requirements and baccalaureate requirements. The agreement indicates which courses students should take during their associate program in order to be prepared for the Temple baccalaureate program into which they wish to transfer.

Temple and Northampton Community College have entered into the following Program-to-Program agreement:

Curricular information and program/advising grids from the agreements are included in the above linked documents.
