What credits can I transfer to the associate degree and certificate programs offered at Porreco College?

You may transfer credits that have been earned from other accredited colleges or universities, or other institutions that have articulation agreements with Edinboro.

In the AAS program, special consideration will be given for certificate or experience in key technical areas.

Send transcripts with your application to the Edinboro Admissions Office, where they will be evaluated for transfer equivalencies and the credit posted to your transcript.

You can also use the website available through our Admissions webpage.

How quickly can I expect to complete a program? 

All associate degree programs are designed for you to complete 15 credits each semester in order to finish in two years.

Most classes are offered once per year. The rotation of course offerings is available from your academic advisor,  who can help you plan your schedule so that you can complete your program as quickly as possible.

Can I meet with someone to discuss applying, programming, financial aid, etc.?

Yes, Porreco College staff are available at the College Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

When are classes offered?

Classes may be offered days or evenings. Depending on your program of study, you may have day classes, evening classes, or a combination. Some semesters, some courses may also be available online.

Your first schedule will be built for you by the University, but you can also work with an advisor if schedule changes are needed.

Each semester, you will meet with your advisor to help develop your schedule.

Do I have access to all University amenities if I attend Porreco College?

No. Part of your discounted rate is due to not paying fees for the amenities on main campus, such as student service and health center fees.

May I also take classes on main campus if I take classes at Porreco College?

Classes offered at Porreco College are open to any EU student, but to be eligible for the discounted fees you must be enrolled in an associate degree program at Porreco and only take courses at the Porreco location (or a combination of Porreco and online courses). 

Porreco College courses are available in priority order to students in Porreco College majors. If additional seats are available, they will be released to other students at a later time.

Will I be able to transfer credits from Porreco College to Edinboro University main campus?

Yes, all courses taken at Porreco College are Edinboro University courses and are part of your University transcript, so moving to a main campus program does not require a transfer evaluation of credits.

Nearly all courses taken in an associate degree or certificate program at Porreco College may be used to meet program requirements for 4-year degrees offered on the main campus. Because 4-year programs have specific course requirements, you should meet with your academic advisor to discuss how your course credits will continue to work for you in the various majors offered on main campus.

What are the criteria to apply and be accepted into the Porreco College program(s)?

A high school degree or GED equivalent.

How do I apply to Porreco College?

You may apply at the main campus Admissions Office or online at through Edinboro University's standard application process. Please be sure to indicate that you intend to take classes at Porreco College by selecting Porreco College majors.

Will all of the courses I need be offered at Porreco?

The truth is probably not. You may need to go to main campus or take on-line classes to complete your degree.

Do you offer / can I take online classes?

Yes, some online courses are available each semester. 

Do we have a bookstore?

We hope to move to the online only model by Fall 2019. Pick up will occur for 1 week each semester and book rental returns are done at the end of each semester in the barn lobby.
