Students who have taken college work before their high school graduation, through programs such as College Credit Plus (CCP) or other post-secondary enrollment options, are first-year students. First-year students also include those who have taken a gap year(s) and have attempted less than 12 college-level hours after high school graduation (or equivalent). Students who have attempted 12 or more college-level hours after high school graduation (or equivalent) are transfer students.
One of the best ways to find your college fit is to visit before or after you apply for admission. We offer daily visits Monday through Friday and select Saturdays. You will enjoy a presentation and 90-minute campus tour that will highlight a residence hall, our Rec Center and a variety of food options. Families who visit Monday or Friday will have additional options to attend academic information sessions on a variety of majors. We also offer a plethora of large visit events where you will choose your own agenda. For more information, go to www.bgsu.edu/visit.
