While there are lots of reasons why students should attend Washington State, the transferability of our courses is definitely at the top of the list. Students can start their education here and transfer their coursework to an endless number of four-year colleges and universities.

The transfer pathway, often referred to as 2+2, is designed so you can start your education at Washington State with a two-year associate degree and then transfer credits to a four-year college/university to complete your bachelor’s degree in just two additional years. Every student’s pathway is unique so some students will take a longer or shorter time to complete their degree. But either way, the transferability of credits helps students save money when they attend a community college prior to enrolling at a four-year college or university. Just how much can you save? Generally, students will save more than $25,000. Check out our cost comparison guide for Ohio and West Virginia.

Articulation Agreements

Articulations are a type of transfer where the pathway to a bachelor's degree is even clearer. There is 100% transfer between classes and programs that have articulations, so you know the exact duration of your education.
