Division of Business and Computer Science Degrees, Certificates of Technical Studies, and Technical Competency Area Programs

Students interested in a bachelor’s degree will find that many courses completed at BPCC will transfer to other colleges. College catalogs from other schools should be consulted, and courses taken at BPCC must be evaluated by the degree-granting institution for acceptance in the student's degree program. The student advisors are also an information source concerning transferability.
