In general, formal transfer agreements between Point Park and individual community colleges lay out a pathway for two categories of students - those who have completed an associate degree and those who are taking classes toward an associate degree.
Students who have earned an associate degree
Students who have completed an associate degree in certain disciplines may continue at Point Park as advanced standing students with junior status. The disciplines vary by community college, so please check the links for each school.
Students working toward an associate degree
Students wishing to transfer before completing an associate degree will receive a careful evaluation of completed course work to ensure Point Park accepts as many credits as possible that meet the University's core curriculum and degree requirements.
Under the transfer agreements, students who transfer a specified number of credits, then earn a specified number of additional credit hours at Point Park can be awarded an associated degree from their community college. Please check the links for each school.
