Program Goals Statement

Students have the flexibility to individualize this transfer program to meet the requirements of many four-year colleges and universities.

Student Learning Outcomes

Program information

  • BCC offers many technical courses frequently not available at four-year institutions.
  • Transfer credit for any Computer Information Systems (CIS or CIT) course must be approved by the CI Department Chair or by a full-time CI faculty member.
Note: Students may be required to obtain and use specific hardware, operating systems, or applications.

Recommendations

  • Students should consider CIS 111 as their first course unless they have previous computer experience or took computer courses in high school. CIS 111 may be a good transfer course.

Elective Recommendations

After BCC

  • Recent graduates have transferred to Bridgewater State College, Rhode Island College, Roger Williams University, Bryant University, and University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.
  • BCC participates in the statewide MassTransfer program and has developed many program-to-program transfer articulation agreements which guarantee admission and credit transfer. For a complete listing of eligible MassTransfer programs and current BCC articulation agreements, visit the Transfer Affairs website at www.BristolCC.edu/transfer
