Transfer Pathways

Transfer Pathways simplify the transfer process and make it easier to complete your associate degree and transition to Wayne State University. You can choose from multiple areas of study within each pathway, saving time and money without losing credits or taking additional courses.

If you complete an associate degree at a community college within one of the pathways, you are guaranteed admission and junior status at Wayne State University with an assurance that your credits will transfer. Wayne State will provide a clear roadmap to earning your four-year degree with continued advising, support and other opportunities through graduation.
