Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Transfer Program

HBCU Transfer Initiative is a partnership between Cuyahoga Community College, United Negro College Fund, and the Cleveland Council of Black Colleges Alumni Association. Students are urged to complete their associate's degree at Tri-C and move directly into their junior year at an Historically Black College or University. Students majoring in most areas can also earn credits through the project’s dual enrollment component and transferring credits is a seamless process.

A major advantage for students is saving thousands of dollars by beginning their coursework in high school or at Cuyahoga Community College. Call 216-987-3260 for more information.
