Denison is part of the Ohio Consortium for Transfer Pathways to the Liberal Arts, a group of 25 colleges offering transfer pathways for community college students in Ohio. These pathways align with the Ohio Guaranteed Transfer Pathways, which provide a clear path for students to transfer from Ohio community colleges to colleges and universities across the state.

Denison has approved an English transfer pathway for community college students to transfer seamlessly to the university as a junior with maximum credits towards their English major and bachelor’s degree. Transfer advisors from Denison and community colleges collaborate to guide students through the process. By completing an associate’s degree using the English transfer pathway, students can transfer as juniors to Denison with introductory major courses and most general education courses complete. Then, students complete their bachelor’s degree in English in as little as four semesters. Denison’s English major offers two degree options: literature emphasis and creative writing emphasis.

Denison and other partner institutions signed a Transfer Pledge as our commitment to your success as a transfer student.
