Start at Westmoreland, Transfer to the 4-Year College of Your Choice
Westmoreland County Community College offers students planning to pursue a bachelor’s degree at a four-year college or university an affordable and convenient way to complete their first two years of study.
Students in the Associate of Arts, Associate of Fine Arts and Associate of Science degree programs work with a transfer counselor to design a program that will readily transfer to most institutions without loss of credits and including core general education requirements.
Courses taken at Westmoreland transfer to more than 100 bachelor’s degree programs at more than 40 colleges and universities.
Starting January 22, 2020 the transfer counselor will be available on Zoom every Friday from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. to answer any questions you have about transfer. The link and password are below.
