Northwest Community College

CSCU Dual Admission Program (DAP)

It has never been easier to start your higher education at one of Connecticut's 12 community colleges and finish at Central, Eastern, Southern or Western Connecticut State University. The Dual Admission program makes it easy to outline your path to success, and take advantage of exceptional program benefits, including:

Guaranteed Admission
Students are guaranteed admission to the selected CSU institution upon completion of their associate degree with a minimum 2.0 GPA. Specific academic and professional programs may have additional admission requirements.

Coordinated Academic Advising
While completing the associate degree, students receive personalized advising from both community college and university advisors to ensure appropriate coursework is completed and that all credits taken apply toward their bachelor's.

Smooth Transition
Students enjoy a smooth transition because they take classes that will transfer, have met regularly with university staff, have become familiar with academic policies, and know which upper-level classes they need at the university.


Who is eligible?

  • Students planning to earn an associate's degree from a Connecticut Community College in 5 years or less.
  • Students planning to pursue a bachelor's degree at a Connecticut State University within 2 years of completing an associate degree.
  • Students who have earned 15 or fewer transferable college credits at the community college at the time of application
