Community college students who wish to transfer to Ohio Wesleyan to earn a bachelor’s degree in Biology can follow the Biology Transfer Pathway approved by the statewide Ohio Guaranteed Transfer Pathway (OGTP) and transfer seamlessly to OWU.

When you complete an associate degree that includes the Biology Transfer Pathway, you will transfer to Ohio Wesleyan as a college junior, with your introductory major courses and most of your general education courses completed, bringing maximum credit from your two-year degree. You will be right on track to complete your bachelor’s degree in Biology in as little as four semesters.
