JCC and several four-year colleges and universities have signed transfer articulation agreements to ease the transfer of JCC graduates into baccalaureate programs. The new agreements include:

Gannon University
JCC students who graduate with an Associate in Science degree in criminal justice can take advantage of an agreement which guarantees acceptance into Gannon's bachelor's degree program in criminal justiceAfter taking designated JCC coursework as part of their associate's degree, students will be able to complete the bachelor's degree in four semesters at Gannon.

University of Pittsburgh at Bradford
The agreements are designed for students who plan to earn an associate's degree at JCC and transfer into a bachelor's degree program in history/political science, human relations, interdisciplinary arts, or writing at Pitt-Bradford.

Each agreement guarantees acceptance of JCC students who successfully complete up to 75 transferable credits (with a minimum grade of C in each course), achieve a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5, meet Pitt-Bradford conduct standards, and complete application and deposit requirements by May 1. 

The agreements also guarantee junior standing to students who transfer a minimum of 60 credit hours and guarantee the opportunity to complete the bachelor's degree in four semesters to students who complete courses specified in the agreement as part of their associate's degree.

JCC and Pitt-Bradford have also updated other transfer articulation agreements, and many of the changes give JCC students more latitude in choosing courses that will transfer well. The agreements are in accounting, applied mathematics, biology, business management, chemistry, broadcast communications, computer information systems and technology, criminal justice, elementary education, entrepreneurship, environmental studies, health and physical education (K-12), hospitality management, nursing, psychology, public relations, social sciences, sport and recreation management, sociology, and sports medicine.

Medaille College
The agreements guarantee acceptance of students who have a parallel JCC degree and a minimum cumulative JCC grade point average of 2.5 into Medaille's bachelor's degree programs in accounting, adolescent education, biology, business administration, communication, criminal justice, early childhood and childhood education, English, liberal studies, mathematics, psychology, and sport management. 

Students who take coursework specified in an agreement as part of their associate's degree are guaranteed the opportunity to earn the bachelor's degree in four semesters (or in five semesters for the education degrees) at Medaille.

An additional agreement allows JCC students to transfer into Medaille's associate's degree program in liberal studies, and another provides JCC students the opportunity to earn a bachelor's degree in information systems online through Communiversity, a partnership that JCC and several colleges, including Medaille, have undertaken.

Alfred State College
JCC graduates have the opportunity to complete the veterinary technology degree in one year at Alfred State upon completion of designated JCC courses with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.25.  A maximum of five JCC students per year may take advantage of the agreement. 

The agreement for the technology management program guarantees junior standing for JCC graduates who have achieved certain academic criteria. Students entering the program will have the opportunity to complete the degree in four semesters at Alfred State.

JCC and Alfred State have also renewed an articulation agreement for the court and realtime reporting degree program.  The agreement, which requires acceptance to Alfred State, guarantees the opportunity to complete the associate's degree in four consecutive regular semesters plus one summer session. In most cases students combine traditional courses at JCC with online courses from Alfred State, often enrolling in both each semester. 

The technology management and the court and realtime reporting agreements are components of the Communiversity partnership that JCC and several colleges, including Alfred State, have undertaken.
