Admission to USciences from a Partner Institution

Partnerships and affiliations allow students from community colleges and other institutions to complete USciences bachelor’s degree programs, and professional pharmacy, occupational therapy and physical therapy programs.  

These formal agreements outline the transfer policies for a specific academic program or degree.  Transfer agreements make the transition easier for students by providing a checklist of what courses should be taken to satisfy degree requirements while attending a community college.

Special agreements also allow streamlined admission into several of USciences Masters and PhD programs.

Associate to Bachelor Degree
