Community College to Buena Vista University Dual Admissions Program

Providing access to BVU benefits and guidance during the community college experience, ensuring a smooth transfer to BVU to earn a bachelor’s degree.


Enrolling in the dual admissions program allows BVU to deepen our commitment to our students’ success as early as possible.

Other benefits include:

  • Early orientation and scheduling access
  • Assistance from a financial specialist on topics such as FAFSA, financial aid, scholarships, and more.
