A2bW transfer

Associate to Bachelor Program
at Baldwin Wallace University


The A2BW Program is a transfer agreement that gives you maximum credit from your Associate degree and streamlines completion of your Bachelor degree at BW.


If you've earned an Associate degree from a regionally accredited college or university, we've got great news for you!  The A2BW Program (Associate to Bachelor at BW) recognizes all the credit you've earned in your Associate degree and sets you on a direct path to completing your Bachelor degree.

Qualifying Associate Degrees. 
Must be earned from a regionally accredited college or university in the United States in one of these degree areas*:

  • Associate of Arts
  • Associate of Science
  • Associate of Applied Business
  • Associate of Applied Science
* Associate degrees affiliated with an apprenticeship program do not qualify for the A2BW program.

Choose any major and minor at BW. 
Baldwin Wallace University offers more than 50 majors and minors leading to the BA, BS, BSEd and BM degrees.  Some BW programs that lead to professional licensure, accreditation or that have program-based standards (e.g., education, communication disorders, conservatory of music and some heath/physical education majors) may require that A2BW students complete additional requirements.


Guaranteed Junior Standing at Baldwin Wallace.
A maximum of 62 credits transfer to BW from two year colleges for an Associate degree.  You'll work with a BW academic advisor to plan your remaining coursework toward graduation.


Transfer Equivalencies.  
All course equivalencies in your Associate degree program will transfer to BW toward major, minor and core requirements.


Reduced Core Requirements.
Using the Ohio Transfer Module as a guide, A2BW students must have a minimum 24 transferable credits from these disciplines:  English, mathematics, arts/humanities, social and behavioral sciences and natural sciences.  If your Associate degree does not include 24 credits from these areas, a BW academic advisor will help plan whether it's best to complete the remaining credits at Baldwin Wallace or before transferring.


Complete your bachelor's degree at BW's main campus in Berea, OH or at Corporate College East in Warrensville Heights.
