Trocaire College has signed agreements with numerous four-year colleges and universities within the Western New York area and beyond our geographic region. The articulation agreement facilitates an effective transfer of credit for those students who wish to continue their education beyond an Associate Degree.

The Dual Admission Agreement provides the student the opportunity to attend Trocaire for their Associate Degree and then to continue their studies for a Bachelor's Degree with the assurance that credits from Trocaire will apply to the designated program at four-year institutions. The Dual Admission Agreement also provides a single admission process for both colleges and academic advisement from both institutions. In some instances, scholarships are provided based on a cumulative average.

Agreements have been established with numerous four-year colleges and universities. Students are to keep in mind that new agreements are negotiated annually and credits usually transfer to most colleges, whether or not they are listed. This is why it is important for the student to begin the transfer admission process with their academic advisor at registration or during their first semester at Trocaire. The Director of the Career Center is available to assist students in the transfer process.
