Students transferring to BBCC will be given appropriate credit for college level work completed in regionally accredited post-secondary institutions.
Students must submit to the Student Services Office official transcripts from each institution attended. Credit will be awarded from official transcripts only. The cumulative grade point average of all credits accepted must be 2.00 or higher. Although there is no limit on the number of credits a student may transfer to BBCC before graduating, the student must meet all BBCC degree requirements, including residency requirements (see section on Degree and Certificate Requirements in the current Course Catalog).
The college subscribes to the statewide Policy on Inter-college Transfer and Articulation among Washington Public Colleges and Universities endorsed by the public colleges and universities of Washington state and the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges and adopted by the Higher Education Coordinating Board. For more detailed information contact the Student Services Office or the Counseling Center. Credits are awarded following recommendations provided by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers.
In programs where appropriate, credits may also be given for military service schools attended. These are normally awarded as recommended by the ACE Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experience in the Armed Services. Please see our Military Service credit policy. Current and former military members may obtain information on ordering a military transcript at the following website: https://jst.doded.mil/smart/welcome.do
