by Alana J. Mauger

On Feb. 17, the College  entered into a program-to-program transfer agreement with Holy Family University. When the College’s students complete an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in Fire Science or Emergency Management and Planning and meet Holy Family’s admissions criteria, they may transfer into the University’s Fire Science and Public Safety Administration bachelor’s degree program with junior status.

“We work hard to ensure that our students have opportunities for success—whether they come to us with a goal of transfer, or they come to us with a goal of getting an associate’s degree and going right into a career,” said Dr. Karen A. Stout, President. “More than 60 percent of our students enter the College each year with a goal of transfer, and we are pleased to afford graduates of our Fire Science and Emergency Management and Planning programs with the option of seamless transfer to an excellent institution like Holy Family University.”

“We are very pleased to enter into the dual admissions agreement with Montgomery County Community College,” said Dr. Jan W. Duggar, Holy Family’s Dean of the School of Business Administration. “The Holy Family University Fire Science and Safety Administration program continues a student’s progress toward a leadership and supervisory role in government and private industry. We are very proud of our graduates and the outstanding leadership and service they provide.”

The College has more than 40 program-to-program transfer agreements and 21 core-to-core transfer agreements with four-year institutions.

Holy Family has similar agreements with Bucks County Community College, Burlington County Community College, Community College of Philadelphia, and other two-year institutions.
