PennWest California partners with many educational institutions articulating how credits from an earned associate degree or other credential will transfer into one of our bachelor's or master's degree programs. See the full list of approved articulation agreements.
If you do not see your school or program on the list, PennWest California still may accept your credits. Please contact PennWest California for transfer evaluation support; email firstname.lastname@example.org for an unofficial evaluation to see how your credits can transfer.
Statewide Articulation Agreements
Pennsylvania's Public School Code of 1949 requires colleges and universities that participate in the commonwealth's Statewide College Credit Transfer System to develop articulation agreements that will allow students to transfer full Associate of Arts (A.A.) and Associate of Science (A.S.) degrees into parallel bachelor's degree programs with junior standing at participating institutions.

Transfer Policies (Graduation Residency)
PennWest California does not set a maximum number of transferable credits. To earn a PennWest California degree, 30 of the last 60 credits must be taken from PennWest California. In addition, students must complete at least 50% of their major coursework from any of the 14 universities that comprise Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education.
The statewide transfer system promotes a seamless transfer process for students currently attending Pennsylvania community colleges, and universities in Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education. Eligible students are granted guaranteed acceptance at a Pennsylvania State System institution with transfer and acceptance of course credits.
