If you have successfully completed math or English Composition classes at another college or university, you may be able to use your transfer credits instead of placement scores. Contact the college or university where you earned those credits and request an official transcript sent to BBCC.
Did you take college classes in high school through College in the High School or Running Start? If you took those classes through BBCC, those credits are already on your BBCC transcript. If these were English Composition or math classes, you will not need placement scores. If you were in these programs through a different college or university, please follow the instructions for Transfer Credits (above).
The AP (Advanced Placement) Program offers college-level courses and exams that you can take in high school. CLEP (College-Level Examination Program) exams allows students to demonstrate mastery of introductory college-level material. The IB (International Baccalaureate) Program offers courses and exams that you can take in high school.
If you took AP, CLEP, or IB tests, your scores could earn you college credit. If those credits are in math or English Composition, you do not need placement scores.
Visit CollegeBoard.org and request an AP or CLEP score report sent directly to BBCC
Visit IBO.org and request an IB transcript sent directly to BBCC for evaluation.
Other colleges and universities may offer placement testing to non-students. Contact a college or university near you to see if they offer this service.
Contact the college or university and ask them to send a copy of your test scores and their recommended placement to email@example.com.
Admitted students transferring to BBCC will be given appropriate credit for college level work completed at a regionally accredited institution. 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.
Contact the college or university where you earned the credits and have an official transcript sent to BBCC for evaluation. BBCC accepts transfer credits only from regionally accredited institutions. Only official transcripts will be evaluated for BBCC credit. Transfer credits will not be awarded from high school transcripts.
You can drop off paper transcripts at Student Administrative Support Services in the 1400 building or have them mailed to:
