Find Your Way from Pierce College to PLU

Each year, more than 50 Pierce students transfer to PLU to complete their Bachelor’s degree, with over 40 academic programs from which to choose.

PLU has a generous transfer credit policy, and accepts Pierce College direct transfer degrees (AA-DTA and AS-T). If you earn a direct transfer associate degree from Pierce, you will enter PLU with automatic junior standing.

If you do not complete a degree, you can still transfer Pierce credits to PLU, which will be reviewed on a class by class basis.
