Dual Admission
Baldwin Wallace University

Cuyahoga Community College


Dual Admission is a special transfer program between Cuyahoga Community College and Baldwin Wallace University.  Through Dual Admission, students start their college degree at Tri-C with a commitment of admission to BW.  

From their first courses at TriC, Dual Admission students know they are already on-track toward their goals of earning a bachelor's degree from Baldwin Wallace University. Students may apply and be admitted to the Dual Admission Program directly out of high school or as a college transfer student.  Once admitted to the program,they meet with Dual Admission advisors who can guide them on course selection and advise on program requirements for both TriC and BW.  

Participating in the Dual Admission program allows you to use the classes, services and expertise of two outstanding schools.  Dual Admission ensures that as a TriC student you will take classes that count toward both your Associate’s degree at TriC and your Bachelor’s degree at BW.  You'll know that your transition between colleges will be a smooth one.   And while you're attending TriC, you can start enrolling in a few courses at BW -- and realize huge tuition savings as part of the Dual Admission program!
