Articulation Agreements

At BU, we understand how important it is to get the most out of your transfer credits to earn your BU degree and become a Husky for life.

Articulation Program Options

We offer a variety of articulation agreements with several community colleges and some two-year partner colleges to help you move onward.  For associate degree holders, these agreements facilitate a seamless process to complete your bachelor’s degree and achieve junior status, provided you meet the expectations of the agreements.


Statewide Program-to-Program

The Statewide Program-to-Program Articulation Agreements are approved majors by Pennsylvania community colleges, two-year colleges and four-year institutions. To see what majors your school and BU are approved to offer through this option, please click the link above. If your school is approved to offer a major in one of these areas, you followed your school’s major curriculum to earn the appropriate associate degree, and you meet the admission requirements of the parallel major at BU, you will be accepted into the parallel major at BU with junior status. Please speak with your community college advisor/transfer advisor to see if your school is approved to offer your major as part of the statewide agreements.

Community College and Additional Articulation Agreements

BU also offers specific dual admission or articulation agreements with several community and two-year colleges. These agreements are for majors not included in the Statewide Program-to-Program Articulation Agreements. You can find these agreements and their curriculum requirements using the link below. Please remember that these transfer articulations are only for the designated majors between the partner college and BU and the appropriate associate degree must be earned for the agreement to be valid.

Looking to See What Courses Will Transfer to BU?

Find out what courses will transfer to BU from your current or previous college(s). The colleges are listed in alphabetical order, and if you took a course that is not listed with a BU course match, that does not mean it may not transfer, but that it has not been evaluated by BU to determine a possible match. It is always a good idea to consult with the BU department chairperson of the major you are considering to discuss how your transfer credits may be used for any  BU degree requirements, general education or electives.
