CCAC and Pennsylvania State University (PSU) completed an articulation agreement that would allow students taking prescribed courses for their associate degree in Computer and Information Science to transfer earned credits toward completion of a PSU bachelor's degree in Information Sciences and Technology (IST). In the process, students can save thousands of dollars while still completing a bachelor's degree in four years!
If you are interested in this program, it is suggested that students first contact a PSU or CCAC transfer counselor before enrolling for courses.
The following are the prescribed courses and their sequence that will fulfill both the AS Computer and Information Science and transferring to the PSU main campus or one of their branch campuses in Southwestern Pennsylvania (New Kensington, Greater Allegheny, Beaver) in the third year of their BS Information Sciences and Technology program:
A student needs to discuss with a transfer counselor the appropriate sequence of mathematics courses and any remedial courses, based on their high school mathematics capabilities and/or placement test scores.
