The Pennsylvania State University Commonwealth campuses and the state’s community colleges are embarking on a new partnership to ease the transfer process. The partnership creates a common dual-admission program in which community college students in associate degree programs can receive an admissions offer to a designated Penn State Commonwealth campus upon request, according to a recent news release from the Penn State system. These students can apply to transfer with no fee during their last semester and have guaranteed admission to a bachelor’s degree program at that designated college, provided they meet eligibility requirements.
