Tri-C, Cleveland State and Kent State Create Dual Admissions Program
Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C), Cleveland State University and Kent State University have created a dual admissions program that for the first time will allow University System of Ohio students to select both a community college and a university at the time of admission into a community college.
The Dual Admissions Partnership Program will benefit students at the three institutions. The program will enroll students at Tri-C and CSU, or at Tri-C and Kent State, with the goal that students complete an associate degree at Tri-C while preparing for transfer to CSU or Kent State to complete a bachelor’s degree.
"This is a major step forward for Tri-C, Cleveland State and Kent State, as well as for University System of Ohio students as a whole," Chancellor Eric Fingerhut says. "Dual admission is an excellent choice for students who want an affordable, high-quality college education, especially if they know from the outset that they intend to use the community college as a springboard to a bachelor’s or other advanced degree."
The Chancellor noted that building flexibility and easy credit transfer into the University System of Ohio will directly lead to graduating more students from community colleges and universities and raising the education attainment level of Ohio’s workforce.
