Can I transfer my credits to a four-year college or university?
With YOUR end goals in mind, the two-year degree is flexible to meet the transferability needs of a wide variety of four-year colleges and universities with no loss of credit. If your intended transfer school participates in Pennsylvania’s statewide college-credit transfer system, you will be able to begin your third year as a junior. Our programs also transfer well to schools outside of the statewide system. However, each individual college has their own unique program. We encourage you to select a four-year school as soon as possible. This will allow you to learn the transfer college’s program requirements so you can take the proper classes at HACC.
