Start Here. Stay Here.
Marietta College is excited to work closely with Washington State Community College to offer the WSCC2MC transfer program. The program is designed for students who want to start their college experience at Washington State Community College and stay local by transferring to Marietta College to complete a four-year degree.
Residents of Ohio, as well as reciprocity counties in West Virginia, are eligible to apply to the WSCC2MC program. Students should apply to the WSCC2MC program before starting classes at Washington State Community College or within their first 25 transferable credit hours at WSCC. Students with more than 25 transferable college credits may be considered on a case-by-case basis. Students cannot participate in the WSCC2MC students as College Credit Plus students.
Acceptance to the WSCC2MC program will be determined by Marietta College’s Office of Admission based on a review of the student’s application, transcript(s), and test scores.
All students, regardless of their current enrollment status at Washington State, need to complete the WSCC2MC application to be considered. This application will serve as the official application to both colleges. To apply, simply print the free application and submit to Marietta College’s Office of Admission by mail to 215 Fifth Street, Marietta, Ohio or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Official transcripts and test scores must also be submitted to Marietta College to complete the application. While there is no deadline for submitting a WSCC2MC application, you are encouraged to apply before accumulating 25 transferable credit hours.
Maintaining Dual Admission
Once accepted to the WSCC2MC program, you must complete a minimum of 25 transferable credits at Washington State with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5. A minimum 2.0 GPA is required in all Marietta College courses taken as part of the WSCC2MC program.
While you pursue an associate degree at Washington State in the WSCC2MC program, you can take one course per semester (fall and spring) at Marietta College. These courses will be offered to WSCC2MC students at the WSCC credit hour rate.
Pick a Major
Marietta College has recently added bachelor’s degrees Energy Systems Engineering, Music Therapy, Computer Science and Actuarial Science in response to the job market. Marietta continues to offer outstanding programs in Education, History, Land & Energy Management, and Communication, as well as multiple options in the STEM areas.

Students in the WSCC2MC program who complete an associate degree at Washington State with a minimum GPA of 2.75 and transfer to Marietta College will be awarded a $17,500 per year scholarship (renewable for up to three years).
As part of the program, you will also benefit from one-on-one academic advising to facilitate the transfer process. All students in the program will have an academic plan that maps their coursework at Washington State to their desired major at Marietta College. To help you stay on track, you will meet several times each semester with advisors from both institutions.
All WSCC2MC students have full access to Marietta College’s facilities (for an additional fee), including computer labs, Legacy Library, Dyson Baudo Recreation Center and the J. Michael Harding Center for Wellness. To ensure you have a well-rounded college experience, we encourage you to explore clubs and campus activities on both campuses.
