BGSU’s Falcon Express Lands at Tri-C
Transfer program charts course to earn associate and bachelor’s degrees
Students starting at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) can earn a bachelor’s degree from Bowling Green State University through a new transfer program between the institutions.
The Falcon Express dual admission program builds an academic bridge between Tri-C and BGSU that supports educational opportunity and degree attainment. The program begins in the 2018 fall semester.
Tri-C President Alex Johnson and BGSU President Rodney Rogers will sign the partnership agreement during a ceremony at 11 a.m. Tuesday at the College’s District Administrative Offices in Cleveland.
“Access to higher education is critical to our community and Ohio,” Johnson said. “This partnership between Tri-C and Bowling Green State University demonstrates a shared commitment to opening pathways for student success and a brighter future.”
Dual admission at Tri-C and BGSU connects students to advising services at both institutions as they begin their higher education journey. BGSU works directly with Falcon Express participants to ensure Tri-C coursework transfers and meets the requirements for their chosen four-year degree.
The goal is to provide a seamless transition between the schools as students build their academic resumes with an associate degree from Tri-C and a bachelor’s degree from BGSU.
Nearly 200 students are expected to participate in the program this fall.
“We are pleased to enter into this partnership with Cuyahoga Community College, which will provide additional educational experiences and opportunities for students,” Rogers said. “As a public university, we are always looking at how best to serve our communities and collaborate with institutions that will set students up for success in the future.”
The program is open to new and current Tri-C students planning to finish a bachelor’s degree at BGSU. Previous BGSU students or BGSU students taking classes at Tri-C to transfer back to the university are not eligible.
Students in the program also receive a preference for BGSU transfer scholarships.
