One-Plus-One Transfer Agreements 

JCC has special arrangements with Gannon University in respiratory care. Under these "one-plus-one" agreements, students normally spend one year at JCC and then transfer to Gannon University to complete the second year of the degree program. Through appropriate course selection in consultation with an academic advisor at JCC, students prepare for successful transfer and earn their degrees from the transfer institution.

Important Points (minimum standards for students with an associate degree)

  • Students must have a minimum cumulative JCC grade point average (GPA) of 2.5.
    As part of accepting the associate degree, Gannon accepts grades that have been deemed as passing by the sending institution. Grades of “D” will only be accepted as a component of an earned associate degree in accordance with this articulation agreement. Otherwise, a grade “C” or better is required for course transfer.
    Students are encouraged to meet with an academic advisor at Gannon prior to their first semester there to discuss their transition and any particular issues relating to their desired program of study.
  • Gannon will accept all college-level credits earned from JCC up to a maximum of 32 credits. 
  • Specific course requirements for the AS Respiratory Care must be fulfilled as stipulated in the attached curriculum matrix.
