Transfer Pathways Guide

Your experience matters.

Antioch College accepts up to two full years of credits from students who have previously enrolled at another college or university. For students completing the associate degree at a community college, acceptance at Antioch College means transferring with junior standing and most of your credits intact. Students can earn Cooperative Education credits for previous work, internship, or other experiences.

Antioch & Affordability.

Antioch believes cost should not be a barrier to a high quality education. Any additional cost, including housing, beyond Pell Grant funds, will be fully covered by the College.

Understanding the Antioch Curriculum

The Antioch curriculum provides students with a high degree of flexibility and agency to intentionally – and holistically – integrate classroom study, work experiences, and community engagement into the design of a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree.

At the beginning of their studies at Antioch College, transfer students will work with their advisors to conceptualize and articulate a statement of inquiry and tentative degree plan. This statement will be revised periodically as each student’s interest evolves and guides their selection of courses and experiences in the Cooperative Education Program.

The pathway pursued by each student organically leads to the formation of a Capstone Project developed in the final year of study. The Capstone may involve a field study, research, projects based on campus or in the local community, a creative project, or a traditional academic thesis.
