Program Information

The transfer program is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution to complete their baccalaureate program.

Recommendations

Take MTH 131, ENG 101, and ACC 101 first to position yourself for the next course sequences. Students should take any required developmental courses in their first semester, followed by MTH 131 and ENG 101 during the second semester.

After BCC

Recent graduates have transferred to Bridgewater State College, Bryant University, Rhode Island College, Roger Williams University, Simmons College, Stonehill College, and the University of Massachusetts.

BCC participates in the statewide MassTransfer program and has developed many program-to-program transfer articulation agreements which guarantee admission and credit transfer.
