Partnership with Cal U leads to Seamless Transfer

Posted August 31, 2017 at 8:56 am

Pennsylvania Highlands Community College and California University of Pennsylvania have collaborated to help better serve the region. The two institutions recently signed an articulation agreement allowing students to easily transfer credits earned through the Associate of Applied Science in Small Business Management (Penn Highlands) to the Bachelor of Science in Technology Management (California University of Pennsylvania) program.

This agreement allows Penn Highlands’ graduates the ability to apply for full junior standing upon admission into California University of Pennsylvania. A secondary purpose is to provide faculty and administration of both institutions with more precise guidelines for advising students interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Technology Management. These guidelines will help students achieve their degree in the most cost effective and timely manner possible.

With the addition of this new agreement, there now stands seven (7) articulation agreements in place between Penn Highlands Community College and California University of Pennsylvania. These program-to-program agreements include:

  • Small Business Management (A.A.S) to Bachelor of Science in Technology Management
  • Human Services (A.A.S) to Bachelor of Social Work
  • Business Administration (A.S.) to Bachelor of Science in Business Administration
  • Criminal Justice (A.S.) to Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice
  • Computer Science (A.S.) to Bachelor of Science Computer Science
  • Early Childhood Education (A.A.) to Bachelor of Science in Education: PreK-4
  • Psychology (A.A.) to Bachelor of Arts in Psychology

These agreements follow the 2+2 model where students must earn an associate’s degree first before they are able to obtain transfer of credit with junior standing.

“Our commitment to this region gets stronger with every partnership,” said Dr. Walter Asonevich, College President. “These agreements provide our students with a level of comfort and confidence in knowing their credits are able to transfer after graduation from Penn Highlands.”

Pennsylvania Highlands Community College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The College has five locations throughout the region: Blair, Ebensburg, Huntingdon, Richland, and Somerset.
