Tiffin University highlights associate to bachelor’s degree completion program
Tiffin, Ohio — Tiffin University has announced that it has partnered with community colleges to offer pathways of study leading to a four-year degree. With the A2B (Associate to Bachelor’s degree completion) program, students who hold an associate degree from a regionally accredited institution can earn their bachelor’s degree from Tiffin University in 61 or fewer credits.
The A2B program accepts associate degrees from any field of study and counts them towards a Tiffin University bachelor’s degree in psychology, workplace leadership, business management, human resource management, manufacturing management, marketing, accounting, or contemporary justice. Since the program’s launch in summer 2022, the university has enrolled 65 associate to bachelor’s degree completion students.
In late 2022, Tiffin University also launched the Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) program, which recognizes knowledge and work experience as college credit. Through this program, students can earn up to a quarter of the credit hours for their bachelor’s degree before starting class.
By combining the A2B program and the CPL program, students can potentially have upwards of 90 credit hours in transfer credit towards a bachelor’s degree program before beginning classes at Tiffin University.
Benefits of TU’s transfer pathways include assured course transfer towards a bachelor’s degree at Tiffin University, transfer with introductory major and most general education courses complete, and starting the academic year as a college junior. Students can complete their bachelor’s degree in as little as two years by enrolling as full-time students.
TU’s pathways and collaboration with other schools were recognized by the Ohio Consortium for Transfer Pathways to the Liberal Arts during a reception at the Ohio Statehouse Atrium in Columbus. The event recognized 25 two- and four-year institutions that have worked collaboratively to approve common transfer pathways in biology, English, and psychology, consistent with the Ohio Guaranteed Transfer Pathways’ guidelines.
