Providence College’s School of Continuing Education Reaches New Transfer Agreement with Bristol Community College
Providence, R.I. – In an effort to offer more students the opportunity to earn a Providence College degree, the School of Continuing Education (SCE) has reached a new agreement with Bristol Community College of Fall River, Mass., (BCC), in which their Liberal Arts / Professional Option associate's of science degree graduates can transfer into SCE’s bachelor’s of arts in Liberal Studies, while also earning their high school certification in history / social studies through SCE’s Teacher Certification Program.
One of the goals is to save students time and money in earning both their bachelor's degree and high school certification, simultaneously.
This is the second agreement between SCE and BCC. The first agreement became effective October 30, 2012 and covers BCC students who have completed their associate’s degree in general studies, completed a minimum of 60 semester hours, and maintained a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.0. These students are automatically accepted into SCE’s degree program – a bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies. BCC students can apply for a transfer student scholarship through the SCE and they can transfer in a maximum of 75 credits toward the bachelor's degree.
In addition to Fall River, BCC has locations in Attleboro and New Bedford. For more information on credits, semester hours, etc…please log onto https://www.providence.edu/sce/student-resources/Pages/transfer-bcc.aspx
