Maximize your transfer options with Pathway to Success: Stronger Together.
Pathway to Success: Stronger Together is the seamless and stress-free way you are able to use your hard-earned credits from NCC towards a baccalaureate degree at ESU. By earning your associate degree from NCC with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.00, you are eligible to enter a four-year program at ESU with junior status (dependent upon the number of transfer credits and appropriate sequencing). You will not be required to complete more than 60 credits at ESU in order to earn a bachelor’s degree (unless you are transferring into a program with accreditation or licensing/certification standards that may require additional credits).
Don’t have an associate degree from NCC? No problem! You may still take advantage of seamless transfer options through Pathway to Success: Stronger Together while pursuing both your associate and baccalaureate degrees.

As an NCC student, you have options when transferring to East Stroudsburg University (ESU).
Using the guides found on this page, you can make the choice that is best for you. You may also consult with Stanton Estwick, Assistant Director of Admissions, or your NCC transfer office for additional guidance.
Use the following guides to choose NCC 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 if you 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 of 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 NCC. If you have identified required general education to corequisite courses when researching your ESU degree program, you may use the Course Equivalency Guide to identify if NCC offers the equivalent course.
- General Education Requirements - Reference ESU's 45 credit General Education Program requirements.
- Accelerated Pathways - Interested in graduate school? Don’t forget to ask about ESU’s Accelerated Pathways, an array of options to pursue baccalaureate and master’s degrees with coursework counting towards both degree levels.
