I would like to complete an Associate Degree Articulation Agreement Program:
An articulation agreement outlines how an associate degree or nursing diploma program transfers to SRU. Most agreements are based on curriculum that allows a student to transfer at the junior level (60 or more credits of the 120 credit SRU degree).
In Pennsylvania, there are numerous Statewide Program-to-Program Articulation Agreements (P2Ps). To see what P2P agreements are available to you, review the detailed information below for your specific Pennsylvania community college.
I am not necessarily interested in an associate degree, or there is not an associate degree that matches my SRU academic major, but I would like to complete as many credits as possible at a community college, before transfer:
We have some great tools to help you plan for this option. Liberal Studies Conversion Guides are created in the SRU general education format, but they list your community college courses - course numbers and titles. They are easy to follow and help you make a plan for transfer.
The guides are listed below by college. If you do not see your college or do not see a guide for your chosen academic major, contact us. We will help you prepare an individual plan.
Also, be sure to consider a possible reverse transfer. For whatever reason, if you transfer to SRU prior to the completion of an associate degree, you may be able to transfer SRU courses back to your community college for the awarding of your associate degree. This associate degree credential may be valuable to your future job searches. For more information about this process, contact your community college's registrar's/records office.
I am undecided as to what major I want to study at my community college and at SRU:
In Pennsylvania, there is a 30-credit Transfer Framework of general education courses that will transfer to most academic majors at Pennsylvania's State System Universities. For a student who is undecided about an academic major, choosing courses from this framework is a great place to begin. Information regarding this framework may be found at the Pennsylvania and Transfer articulation Center Web site, PATRAC.org.
I want to stay as brief of a period of time as possible at my community college before I transfer:
If you are in your first semester(s) at a community college and want to transfer to SRU, you should apply for transfer admission, following our recommended timelines. Ideally, we would like you to be enrolled full time at your community college (12 credits or more). We will review your mid-term grades and/or your final grades for that semester. For a list of recommended courses, refer to your community college below, using Option 2. If you don't find your college below, be sure to contact our office for assistance.
