Dual Admission

Dual Admission

Nate PangalloYou may be planning to come to Westmoreland for your associate degree and then transfer for your bachelor’s degree.  Dual Admissions is a great pathway to follow.  Dual Admissions enables you to transfer to colleges and universities that have agreements with Westmoreland.  After completing your associate degree, you simply enroll as a junior at one of the four-year colleges or universities listed below.  There, you can pursue your bachelor’s degree and enjoy all the benefits of junior status.  Westmoreland is dedicated to helping you achieve academic success in the Dual Admissions program.  And there is no cost to apply.  

The Dual Admissions combination is an excellent way to get an education that is financially responsible for today, tomorrow and for the future. If you think this is the right program for you, ask about applying during your visit or talk to your assigned advisor.   We would be happy to discuss the program with you.  

There are some simple steps to get started:

  1. Select a program of study at Westmoreland that best fits your career goals. Review list of programs. Westmoreland  has multiple agreements that may fit your Ambitious journey. Westmoreland does not have a Dual Admissions agreement for every program.
  2. Review the list of schools for Dual Admission and select the one that best fits your program.  Read through the dual admissions requirements of the college or university you selected.  If you have questions, contact the Information Center at infocenter@westmoreland.edu or 724-925-4000.
  3. You will need to complete the Dual Admissions form that identifies your decision to transfer after completing your associate’s degree at Westmoreland.
