Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society Transfer Honor Roll badge imageBW and Lorain County Community College (LCCC) have worked closely for years helping students build a bridge from LCCC to BW. A maximum of 60 semester hours may transfer from two-year or community colleges. Courses transferred from LCCC count directly toward your major or minor, core requirements, or electives - all are valuable credit toward the minimum 120 credits needed to graduate.
