Transfer Out

On average, starting your college education at NCC can save you up to $40,000 per year compared to local four year schools. We also have one of the most successful community college transfer programs in Pennsylvania, and over 100 signed transfer agreements with four-year colleges and universities across the country. Because of these agreements and our reputation for academic integrity, transferring your credits to an approved four-year school is efficient, convenient and cost-effective.


According to a recent survey, 55% of our graduates choose to continue their education after NCC, and 75% transferred to Pennsylvania public and private institutions. The top transfer schools for our students include East Stroudsburg University, DeSales University, Kutztown University, Moravian College, Temple University, Pennsylvania State University, Cedar Crest College, West Chester University, Bloomsburg University and Lehigh University.


In order to transfer credits, students are required to have earned Cs or higher in the individual course. While Northampton reviews each request on a case-by-case basis, our transfer agreements help simplify and streamline the process.
