Dual Admissions Program

Winston-Salem State University and Forsyth Technical Community College have approved a partnership that will offer dual admission to students who are planning to enroll at WSSU after completing an associate's degree.

The partnership stresses the importance of students receiving early academic advising, coordinated with Forsyth Tech to ensure a program of study that will result in the smooth transfer of community college course credits.

Students admitted to the program will enjoy a variety of benefits from participation in co-curricular activities; such as the band, University Choir, ROTC, access to the library, and attendance at WSSU student-only events.



  • High school seniors who have applied to WSSU and were denied
  • Plan to earn an associate's degree from Forsyth Tech Community College
  • Students enrolled at Forsyth Tech who are interested in transferring to WSSU


Guaranteed Admission: Students are guaranteed admission to WSSU upon successful completion of the Dual Admission Program. Specific academic and professional programs may have additional admission requirements.

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

Limited Campus Access: Students will have limited access to WSSU campus facilities, activities, and events.
