Transfer Opportunity Initiative


Wilmington College is dedicated to supporting community college graduates both academically and financially. Our mission of college access is the core value behind our Transfer Opportunity Initiative. This program provides substantial financial aid to students who are currently pursuing or have completed their Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree at a regionally accredited Ohio Community College.

The goal of the Transfer Opportunity Initiative is to provide a community for Associate Degree holders from our Ohio two year institutions. Through this community students will live together, meet regularly, attend lectures, and hear from guest speakers to enhance their education. This community of students will provide Wilmington College with a strong foundation for Ohio transfer students in their pursuit of a bachelor’s degree.

The Transfer Opportunity Initiative requires students to meet specific admission requirements prior financial aid packaging. Eligible students will receive financial support while pursuing their four year degree at Wilmington College.

Wilmington College encourages applications from all community college students outside of the eligibility requirements for the Transfer Opportunity Initiative.
