The BMCC/Trinity Washington University Partnership

Trinity Washington University Campus

The BMCC/Trinity Washington University Partnership assists BMCC students who plan to transfer to Trinity Washington University, one of the country’s top Predominantly Black Institutions (PBIs) and and Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs).

Through the Partnership, as described below, students will receive guaranteed admission and Trinity Washington University will facilitate the transfer of BMCC students who have completed an Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT).


This Agreement applies only to college students who have successfully graduated from the BMCC with an Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, or Associate of Applied Science Degree in specific programs, prior to enrollment at the University. Such persons will be accepted to the University based on the following criteria:

Guaranteed Acceptance at Trinity Washington University will be granted in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth herein below to students who complete their associate degree with a minimum BMCC Grade Point Average of 2.00.

Acceptance of Credits: A maximum of 60-75 credits will be applied toward the completion of the articulated bachelor’s degree programs. Trinity Washington University has a residency requirement defined as 45 of the last 60 credits must be completed at the institution.  Trinity Washington University will accept transfer credits from BMCC with a minimum grade of “C”, except for Nursing courses, which must have a minimum grade of “C+”.

If given credit(s) do not count for requirements in the major, they will then count as open elective credit or general education toward the degree.
