Notes for Northampton Community College:

1. Professor John Leiser, Dept. of Biology, is the Pre-ESF advisor (610)-861-5500.

2. Matt Bartholomew, Transfer Advisor, (610) 861-5346.

3. Unless students in the Environmental Resources Engineering obtain a calculus based Electrical Science course prior to transferring, at a college of their choice, they will transfer in with a second semester sophomore class standing. Should this course be completed in summer school, at a college of the student's choice, the course must be selected with the approval of the ESF admission's office.

Advisor Note: Students entering ESF with 60 or more transferable credits will be given junior class standing. However, students may enroll at ESF with fewer than 60 credits and complete the remaining lower division and upper division requirements.
