At BGSU Firelands, students can earn a degree – close to home and on our convenient campus – and for much less than the cost of going to other colleges. A small commuter campus of Bowling Green State University, our school is known for outstanding faculty, supportive staff and affordable tuition where students feel at home.
We have programs that are ideal for students interested in completing general education requirements or who need more time to explore their options. Academic advisors will help students select the best program to meet their interests. At any time, students can choose to pursue one of our career-focused degrees, or continue their journey from BGSU Firelands to the Bowling Green campus.
BGSU Firelands has an open-door admission policy, enabling anyone with a high school diploma or equivalent GED to have access to a college education. Transfer students are welcome too.

We can help students achieve their goals.
