If you have plans to earn your bachelor’s degree, starting at WSCC is the smart choice. As a matter of fact, the general studies classes you take here are the very same classes required at every four-year institution. The difference between their classes and ours-- we have a much lower tuition rate. Consequently, those savings may keep you from returning to live in your parent's basement after graduation. Also, we pride ourselves on small class sizes. In other words, you won’t find yourself lost in the sea of faces in a giant auditorium. Smaller classes mean more attention can be given to you when you need help. 

Above all, you need to know that at WSCC, you get a quality education that gets you ready for your next academic step. We have the programs and relevant classes that will help you meet your educational goals.

We make the transition easy

WSCC participates in the Ohio Board of Regents Transfer Module (TM) and Transfer Assurance Guide (TAG) systems. When you successfully complete TM and TAG hours here at WSCC, you can apply them toward a degree at any other state-sponsored college or university in Ohio, as well as other institutions that WSCC has developed pathways.

Transfer Module

The Ohio Board of Regents, following the directive of the Ohio General Assembly, developed a statewide articulation and transfer policy. It's called the Transfer Module and it makes it easier to transfer credits from one Ohio public college or university to another.  The Transfer Module contains 54-60 quarter hours or 36-40 semester hours of specified course credits in English, composition, math, fine arts, humanities, social science, behavioral science, natural science, physical science, and interdisciplinary coursework. When you complete The Transfer Module at one college, it automatically meets the requirements of the Transfer Module at the receiving institution.

We've gone one step further to ease the transition. We know you don’t want to waste your time or money, so Washington State has agreements with nearby public and private colleges and universities that clearly define which courses taken here will be accepted when you transfer.

TAGs

Transfer Assurance Guides, called TAGs, are groups of foundation courses that represent a commonly accepted pathway to a bachelor's degree. Any public higher education institution in Ohio can offer TAG courses or course sequences. 

TAG incorporates the Ohio Transfer Module as well as additional hours in pre-major and major courses. This includes both required and elective courses. In fact, TAG courses will transfer and apply directly to your major--guaranteed. In its totality, TAG courses are a guaranteed pathway for our transfer students.

You should note that you may need to complete prerequisite courses in mathematics or science before attempting classes required for your transfer degree. While these classes aid in your success, it may mean it will take you a little longer to earn your degree.
