Transfer Students

At Erie County Community College, we’re committed to help you reach your academic and career goals. 

Transferring credits in?

Erie County Community College of PA (EC3) welcomes students who have completed coursework at other institutions and who wish to continue their studies at EC3. If students are transferring from another college, EC3 records will evaluate their credits based on the degree they intend to pursue at EC3. At least half of the number of credits required for the degree must be completed at EC3.

Please contact with questions about transferring credits in to EC3.
