Transferring In

We are excited that you are interested in transferring to Pennsylvania Highlands Community College. We know that a major concern is if and how previous coursework and experiences are going to transfer. Our Registrar’s office will work with you in evaluating your transfer courses. 

Use this information as a guide in planning your transfer.  If you need further help, please contact the Registrar’s Office at registrar@pennhighlands.edu or 814.262.6439.


Evaluating Credits Earned at Another College or University

Official transcripts showing previous college work must be submitted directly to our Registrar's Office at 101 Community College Way, Johnstown, PA 15904. Credit can be granted only for those courses which are listed in our College Catalog and that match the requirements of the program in which you are enrolled. Once the evaluation is complete, notification of credit transfer will appear on your Penn Highlands transcript.


Transfer Course Equivalencies

The following downloadable PDFs contain lists of courses that have previously transferred in from the institutions noted below. This is NOT a complete list of transfer courses. Please contact the Registrar's Office with questions or to request the evaluation of a class. You can contact the Registrar's Office at 814.262.6439  or registrar@pennhighlands.edu.

Penn Highlands participates in the PA Transfer and Articulation Center (PA TRAC)

PA TRAC provides a website that enables students to search for equivalent courses across all of the community colleges in Pennsylvania, all of the PA State System of Higher Education Colleges and Universities (PASSHE), and some additional institutions that have opted into this program. While this is NOT a complete list of all courses, it’s a great place to begin researching.


Career and Technology Course and Program Transfer

For students who have completed a career and technology program, Penn Highlands will accept up to 15 credits of technical electives applied to the Small Business Management Associate of Applied Science program. New students should contact their Admissions Counselor to begin the evaluation and transfer process, while current students may contact the Registrar’s Office directly for guidance.

In addition, Pennsylvania Highlands has agreements with several local career and technology centers that provide credits into a number of majors. Click here for a complete list of program and course transfer agreements.
