College Transfer

Your Path to Academic and Career Success Starts Here
The smart choice if you’re planning to pursue a bachelor’s degree

Why College Transfer?

 BRCC’s transfer degrees generally fulfill the requirements of the first two years at a four-year college. That means you will transfer to a four-year college as a junior, and save thousands of dollars on the cost of your degree, sometimes as much as $20,000.
Students who transfer to four-year colleges after attending community college are more likely to finish their degrees on time, and generally perform better academically than students who start there.

Transfer Agreements
Under the North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement, college transfer students who complete either the Associate in Arts (A.A.) or Associate in Science (A.S.) degrees at Blue Ridge Community College can transfer into NC public universities (and a number of private institutions) as juniors, as long as they meet all other admissions requirements.

The Associate in Engineering (AE) degree program, outlined in the Uniform Articulation Agreement, will transfer smoothly to all five University of North Carolina System schools that offer engineering programs. These schools are North Carolina State University, UNC-Charlotte, Western Carolina University, East Carolina University, and North Carolina A&T.

The Associate in Fine Arts (AFA) degrees are subject to requirements of the four-year institution with regard to how the credits are applied (general education, major area, or electives). Coursework should be planned carefully in collaboration with the targeted four-year college or university.


Tuition Costs
Your first two years will be a great value as you pay the modest tuition of Blue Ridge Community College.
