Transfer Credit Information


Will My Credits Transfer?

Credits you’ve earned at a two-year or four-year college will likely count at BU, provided they meet the following criteria:

  • The college(s) you’ve earned credit from are regionally accredited.
  • You earned at least a “C."
  • If you completed an A.A. or an A.S. degree from a PA community college, or you transfer from a PASSHE university, you could transfer in courses with grades a “D” or higher. Follow up with our Transfer Counselor for more information.

Articulation Agreements

Dual admission programs at schools such as Bucks CCC, Luzerne and Lehigh County CC, Harrisburg Area CC, Montgomery CCC and Northampton CC guarantee students admission to BU (excluding, but not limited to, nursing, ASL, Engineering 3+2) upon completion of an A.A. or A.S. in an approved major between the CC and BU. Students must also meet the standard admission requirements for the BU major. Students should contact the transfer center or advising area at the CC to start the dual admission process.

Program-to-Program (P2P) — Students who have completed an A.A. or A.S. degree in certain majors, from a PA CC, may be admitted into the parallel major at BU (i.e. computer science-to-computer science), will complete the last 60 credits at BU. Admission is based on GPA.

STEM Transfer — As a student you'll find opportunities for technology internships, clinical experiences or science research, including undergraduate research opportunities. These experiences will give you an edge in your career, and along the way you'll be able to take pride in making a difference — for the community.

Reverse Transfer programs

As a potential Future Husky, we understand you want to get a head start on your bachelor's degree. Starting at a PA community college is a great way to earn credits, at an economical cost, and work towards a degree. With the reverse transfer agreement, a student at any PA community college can transfer to Bloomsburg and potentially finish their associate's degree, while starting on their bachelor's degree. By completing both your associate and bachelor degrees at Bloomsburg, you can increase your career opportunities and earning potential.
