College students looking to transfer to California University of Pennsylvania can get an on-the-spot admissions decision and find out how their previously earned credits will apply to a Cal U bachelor’s degree program.

Students looking to complete their bachelor’s degree at Cal U are invited to visit campus on Instant Transfer Decision Day, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 17, and meet with Transfer Office staff in Room 218, Dixon Hall.

“No waiting!” is the theme of the day.

  • Students can walk in or call 724-938-5939 now to schedule an appointment to meet with a transfer counselor on Jan. 17.
  • Students will learn right away whether they have been accepted for spring semester classes, which begin Jan. 23 at Cal U.
  • Accepted students will find out how their previous college credits apply to their Cal U major. California University offers more than 130 undergraduate programs.

Instant Transfer Decision Day is open to students who are attending or have attended a community college, nursing school, career school or other post-secondary institution. Transfer students from other four-year colleges and universities also are welcome.

What to bring

In order to receive an immediate decision, students should bring copies of transcripts in a sealed envelope from all colleges or universities they have previously attended. Those who are enrolled in college now should bring a transcript from their current school, as well.

Students who have not completed an associate degree also should bring a copy of their high school transcript(s).

In addition to meeting with counselors, students can schedule a tour of the California University campus on Instant Transfer Decision Day.

“The waiting game is over!” says Terrie Greene, executive director of the office of Articulation and Transfer Evaluation at Cal U.

“If you are looking to transfer to Cal U and finish a bachelor’s degree, we will look over your records and give you a decision on the spot. With one visit, we can help you move one step closer to meeting your educational goals.”
