Transfer Student Admission

Transfer From LCCC to BW

BW and Lorain County Community College (LCCC) have worked closely for years helping students build a bridge from LCCC to BW. A maximum of 62 semester hours may transfer from two-year or community colleges. Courses transferred from LCCC count directly toward your major or minor, core requirements, or electives — all are valuable credit toward the minimum 124 credits needed to graduate. All approved courses with a grade of C or better will transfer to Baldwin Wallace, given that they fall within the academic scope and level of BW's programs. Grades of C- or below do not transfer.

Online Transfer Guide

BW’s online transfer guide tells you how courses transfer from LCCC and many other regionally accredited 2-year and 4-year colleges and universities. We want to help you make every course count toward a BW degree!
