  Welcome Future ESU Transfer Students!

As a Bucks CCC student, you have options when transferring to East Stroudsburg University (ESU).

The guides found on this page can help you make the choice that is best for you. You may also consult with an ESU transfer admission counselor or your Bucks CCC transfer office for additional guidance.

Use the following guides to choose Bucks CCC courses that match equivalent courses at ESU, or search for requirements of your intended ESU academic degree program.

  • 30-Credit Framework - As a participating institution of the Pennsylvania Transfer and Articulation Center (PATRAC), ESU identified courses that are generally completed during the first and second year of a four-year degree and will safely transfer to ESU. This framework of courses is helpful for Bucks CCC students who are uncertain of what academic degree to pursue at ESU.
  • Degree Program and Curriculum Plans - Search for degree requirements, required general education or corequisite courses for your intended ESU degree program based on your intended start year. Please Note: Certain ESU degree programs may have specific general education or corequisite course requirements.
  • Course Equivalency Search - Provides a comprehensive list of transfer course equivalencies that ESU has established to date with Bucks CCC. If you have identified required general education or corequisite courses when researching your ESU degree program, you can use the Course Equivalency Guide to identify if Bucks CCC offers the equivalent course.


You may also choose to complete your associate degree, and then transfer to ESU. The following agreements outline how your Bucks CCC associate degree transfers to the bachelor's degree at ESU.

Program-to-Program Agreements - These agreements provide a course by course outline of how your entire associate degree transfers to the bachelor's degree at ESU.

Statewide (P2P) Articulation Agreements - The Statewide Articulation Agreements listed below guarantee that your entire associate degree will transfer and apply to the ESU bachelor's degree. Bucks CCC students will transfer a minimum of 60 credits toward the ESU bachelor's degree, enter ESU at the junior status, and be permitted to enter advanced coursework in the ESU bachelor's degree program. Each agreement applies to the student who graduates with the designated associate degree during or after the effective date listed.
