Ariz. universities will accept PCC credits

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Arizona's three public universities will accept credits earned at Pima Community College, despite the school's possible loss of accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission.

University of Arizona President Hart, ASU Vice Provost Maria Hesse and NAU President John Haeger wrote letters to Pima Community College to confirm that their students' credits will be accepted by the Arizona universities.

"Students who plan to transfer from Pima to the UA should know that those plans are safe as long as they meet their targeted requirements for entry to our academic programs," University of Arizona President Ann Weaver Hart wrote in a letter to PCC last week.

Hart further added that the universities are aware that Pima's accreditation is not directly linked to their academic programs and services.
