Erie Community College

Erie Community College signed an agreement with St. John Fisher College Monday that allows students to be directly admitted into St. John Fisher, located outside of Rochester.

The 2+2 transfer articulation agreement requires students to complete their associate’s degree at ECC and continue their coursework at St. John Fisher, where they can earn a bachelor’s degree from most programs in an additional two years.
