University transfer partners

Start with our low tuition, small class sizes, convenient locations and industry-experienced professors, then get to a bachelor’s degree by transferring your quality Stark State associate degree to one of our many university partners.

3+1

You can maximize Stark State’s quality, low-cost education by taking advantage of our online 3+1 partnership with Franklin University to complete your bachelor’s degree at a fraction of the cost. Your bachelor’s degree is within reach when you take three years at SSC and one year at Franklin.

2+2

Have your eye on a competitive university? Stark State has more than 30 transfer partnerships with other colleges and universities, including The Ohio State University, Kent State University and The University of Akron (our Direct Connect partnership with UA, for example, gives you dual admission at both institutions while you complete your associate degree at SSC while preparing to transfer to UA for a bachelor’s degree). You can get an affordable, smart start at SSC before transferring on to any of our quality educational partners.

Studies show community college students who transfer to selective four-year schools perform as well as or even better than their peers who come directly from high school. In fact, transfer students from community colleges are the group most likely to graduate.*
