Transferring to IUP


									                                            Transferring to IUP???

                                          CCAC equivalents to IUP
                                        Liberal Studies Requirements

Disclaimer: Please note that the below is a guideline of how courses at CCAC transfer to IUP. Majors at IUP have
their own unique requirements regarding Liberal Studies courses. For example an Accounting student will have
different requirements than a student majoring in Elementary Education. Please refer to the IUP catalog at or the department website to view specific requirements for each major.

The courses that will be the same for all students would be the English, Literature, History and Health and
Wellness Requirements. All of the others differ somewhat between majors.

Also note that not all the classes that will transfer to IUP are listed here. For a complete record of how classes
transfer, please visit the IUP Equivalency website at
