Jamestown Community College has signed transfer agreements for the emergency management technology and industrial and human factors design programs offered at Pennsylvania College of Technology (Penn College).
The agreements guarantees acceptance of JCC students who graduate with an A.A., A.S., or A.A.S. degree. Students who transfer a minimum of 60 credits that fulfill Penn College degree requirements are guaranteed full junior standing. Penn College will accept up to the equivalent of 67 specified credits in transfer from JCC.
Due to the sequencing of technical courses, JCC students will spend at least six semesters at Penn College. To remain at full-time status, students may elect to complete an approved minor or a concentration at Penn College.
A separate memorandum of understanding grants JCC graduates guaranteed admission to most Penn College majors and establishes guidelines under which JCC graduates who are New York state residents are eligible for Penn College’s lower Pennsylvania in-state tuition rate.
“JCC’s articulation agreements with Penn College expand the ways in which students can take advantage of academic programs available at both institutions,” said Marilyn A. Zagora, JCC’s vice president of academic affairs. “This new partnership creates additional pathways to bachelor’s degrees for JCC graduates and will assist our students in reaching their career goals.”
Penn College, located in Williamsport, PA, is an affiliate of Pennsylvania State University committed to applied technology education. The college has an enrollment of over 5000 full-time students and offers several bachelor’s and associate’s degree and certificate programs.
