transfer

While there are lots of reasons why students should attend Washington State, the transferability of our courses is definitely at the top of the list. Students can start their education here and transfer their coursework to an endless number of four-year colleges and universities.

The transfer pathway, often referred to as 2+2, is designed so you can start your education at Washington State with a two-year associate degree and then transfer credits to a four-year college/university to complete your bachelor’s degree in just two additional years. Every student’s pathway is unique so some students will take a longer or shorter time to complete their degree. But either way, the transferability of credits helps students save money when they attend a community college prior to enrolling at a four-year college or university. Just how much can you save? Generally, students will save $30,000 or more. Check out our cost comparison guide for more detail.

Transfer Module

The State of Ohio places a high value on transfer credits. In fact, Ohio has created a robust list of Transfer Module (TM) courses which transfer as guaranteed credit to any public college or university in Ohio. WSCC built our transfer majors around these TM courses to help ensure a seamless transfer of our credit to four-year colleges in Ohio.

Considering a private college? Many private colleges, as well as out-of-state colleges, also accept TM courses for credit. The best rule of thumb for transfer is to contact the college you’re interested in and request a transcript evaluation. Better yet, if you know in advance which college you want to attend after completing your studies at WSCC, you’ll want to work with a transfer advisor to help maximize your transfer credit at Washington State.
