Cumberland County College and Temple University sign articulation agreement

Tuesday, November 21, 2017
To ease the process of transferring to four-year institutions for students, Cumberland County College has articulation agreements with a number of well-known colleges and universities. Temple University has been added to that list.

Cumberland County College President Dr. Yves Salomon-Fernandez, and Dr. James Piccone, Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs, welcomed Temple University’s Michele O’Connor, Associate Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies, and Hailey King, Coordinator of Undergraduate Strategic Initiatives-Transfer, to sign a general education articulation agreement that will facilitate the transfer of Cumberland students to the prestigious institution and support their pursuit of a baccalaureate degree.

“We are delighted that students will have the opportunity to continue their academic career at Temple under this new agreement,” said Dr. Salomon-Fernandez. “Cumberland prides itself on providing an array of 4-year institutions with which we have favorable agreements to benefit our students, whether they want to stay local or expand their horizon.”

The agreement provides students who earn an associate degree from Cumberland County College with a seamless transfer into Temple University’s bachelor degree programs with junior status.

For those students completing an approved associate degree program, Temple University will accept the general education embedded in Cumberland’s curricular requirements as meeting the core requirements for Temple’s undergraduate program.
