Dual Admission

Dual Admission is a great option for those planning to earn their associate degree before transferring and obtaining a bachelor’s degree.

If accepted as a Dual Admit, you have the opportunity to continue as a Black Bear until you complete your associate degree, as well as being able to know your four-year transfer institution better. Dual Admission eases transfer by simply being able to enroll as a junior at a four-year college or university after completing an associate degree program. There, you can pursue your bachelor’s degree and enjoy all the benefits

Dual Admission is an excellent way to get an education that is financially responsible. If you think this is right for you, ask about applying by talking to an Admissions representative today.
