FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – Students earning an associate of applied science degree from Washtenaw Community College in Michigan can now transfer those credits toward a bachelor of applied science degree from Purdue Fort Wayne. The new agreement aims to help students continue their education while streamlining the transfer process.

Students can transfer up to 88 credits toward their bachelor’s degree at PFW. They can take online classes or on-campus classes to earn 32 resident credit hours to meet the total of 120 credits required to graduate.

“We want to offer non-local students a convenient way to earn their bachelor’s degree from our university and this agreement is one way we can achieve this,” said Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Enrollment Management at Purdue University Fort Wayne Carl Drummond. “Since the requirements of our bachelor of applied science degree can be completed entirely online, traditional barriers to obtaining a Purdue degree are removed for out-of-state students. We are excited to welcome Washtenaw graduates to the Mastodon family.”

Transfer students can enroll for classes at Purdue Fort Wayne as early as this semester.
