TERMS AND CONDITIONS:

In order to facilitate and improve the transfer process for our mutual students, DCCCD and PQC hereby enter into the following agreement:

  1. DCCCD students who follow the recommended program of study–-the common core and transfer curriculum, and who meet all other admissions requirements shall be eligible for admission to PQC. Transfer students must meet the same standards and criteria for admission to a major degree sequence as a native PQC student.
  2. PQC and DCCCD will jointly develop transfer guides, transfer admission, and course equivalency guides, utilizing both PQC and DCCCD numbers for all majors offered at PQC. By creating these guides PQC and DCCCD assure students that courses listed in these guides are freely transferable between PQC and DCCCD.
  3. Representatives from PQC and the DCCCD will meet or make contact during August of each year to update course equivalencies, transfer guides and transfer admission information to be used the subsequent academic year.
A student transferring to PQC under this agreement shall have acceptance of academic credit hours earned at DCCCD, with the following condition that the curricular and general conditions be met:
  1. Transfer students will receive academic credit for transferable college level courses only completed with a grade of "C" or better.
  2. The student must have a cumulative G.P.A. of 2.0 for admission to PQC. Some programs have higher requirements that must be met to enroll in upper division courses.
  3. Students transferring to PQC with less than 15 semester hours must furnish high school transcripts or official GED scores and results of an ACT or SAT examination. (ACT or SAT scores are not required of students who are 25 years of age or older).
  4. Students must complete 30 hours in residence at PQC to receive a degree from PQC depending on requirements of the major field of study.
  5. PQC shall accept a maximum of 64 credit hours in transfer from DCCCD. Students who have an Associate in Arts or Associate in Sciences from DCCCD may enter the upper division program without taking general core courses, except for College Assembly which is required every semester.

Note: Remedial/developmental or technical/vocational courses will not be included for transfer in this General Articulation Agreement from DCCCD colleges unless specified by individual colleges in a Program-to-Program Articulation Agreement.
