Currently we have extensive articulation agreements with:
We are also in the process of establishing agreements with these community colleges in New York state:
Although we may not have an articulation agreement set up with your school, we accept most credits from accredited colleges and universities as long as a C or better has been earned in the course. To find out how your courses will transfer, click here. If your cumulative GPA is above a 2.5 we can accept all of the credits that you earned.
Students who have earned an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree will be considered to have satisfied the following requirements of the General Education Requirement: SBU 101, SBU 102, ENG 101, and ENG 102.
Students with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or above can be granted credit for all previous coursework in which they have received a passing grade. Courses receiving grades below a C will require the approval of the dean of the school to which the student has applied.
All decisions regarding transfer credit will be made by the appropriate academic dean and confirmed by the registrar, subject to the approval of the vice president for academic affairs. Please note that the above policy does not apply to matriculated students or those who seek readmission to St. Bonaventure.
Quality points are not transferred, hence, the cumulative index or grade point average for graduation is computed only on the basis of quality points earned at St. Bonaventure. A student must complete no fewer than 45 undergraduate credit hours at St. Bonaventure.

Community College of Beaver (Pa.) County has signed transfer agreements with three academic departments and the schools of Business and Communication at St. Bonaventure University.
The agreements afford CCBC students the opportunity to pre-plan their college careers and to facilitate the transfer process to St. Bonaventure University, a highly regarded Franciscan university in the Southern Tier of New York, about 3.5 hours from Beaver County.
Administrators from CCBC and St. Bonaventure signed the transfer articulation agreements at a brief ceremony Monday afternoon.
“Today’s celebration is the culmination of over a year of planning that has been inspired and supported by our great friend and former CCBC Board of Trustees Chair Del Goedeker,” said Dr. Chris Reber, CCBC president. “Del has created an endowed scholarship at both institutions and is enthusiastic about providing life-changing, transformational opportunities for students.”
The agreements pave the way for students to turn their associate’s degrees from CCBC into bachelor’s degrees from St. Bonaventure in either English, history, biology, accounting, finance, management, marketing, or journalism and mass communication.
In fact, students who graduate from Community College of Beaver County with associate degrees in either business administration, accounting or business management are guaranteed acceptance into the BBA degree program at St. Bonaventure University.
Students who transfer 60 or more credit hours to St. Bonaventure University are guaranteed full junior standing.
“I am so pleased to sign this agreement because it will provide students in this region clear, affordable, and convenient pathways to careers and graduate school that will enrich and enhance the already excellent academic reputation of St. Bonaventure University,” said Dr. Joseph Zimmer, provost and vice president for Academic Affairs at St. Bonaventure.
With partnerships and preparation as a strategic priority for CCBC, today’s signing also builds new relationships that provide integrated programs and teamed approaches to fostering community development, expanding the economic potential of the region, and creating opportunities for lifelong learning.
“The CCBC and SBU partnership will give our students expanded educational opportunities at a high-performing four-year institution and provide the conduit for developing future business and thought leaders,” said Dr. Roger W. Davis, executive vice president and provost at CCBC.
Goedeker, SBU class of 1962, was instrumental in deepening his alma mater’s ties with Beaver County. A former CCBC Board of Trustees Chairman and Beaver County native, Goedeker is currently chairman of McDanel Advanced Technical Ceramics in Beaver Falls.
Through the generosity of his Goedeker Foundation, high school students from Beaver County are now eligible for substantial need-based scholarships — up to 95 percent of the cost of attendance, in some cases — if they enroll at St. Bonaventure.
“So much of what I’ve accomplished in life is because of the values I learned at St. Bonaventure,” Goedeker said. “What those scholarships can do for high school students, I sincerely believe the same holds true for CCBC students who decide to transfer there.”
CCBC students must achieve a 2.5 grade point average in the programs covered by the transfer agreements to be guaranteed acceptance into the corresponding majors at St. Bonaventure University and full junior standing.
