Changes of Program

Students may change their program or areas of concentration by completing a Change of Program Form through one of The College’s Enrollment Centers.  A change of program will result in an update of academic requirements to the current academic catalog.  Students changing their concentration within a program may retain the academic requirements of their original catalog year.  International students attending Bristol on an F-1 visa must receive approval for program changes from the Registrar’s Office.  Changes of program are processed for the current semester through the add/drop period. After the add/drop period they will be processed effective for the following semester.  Grades already received in courses not applicable to the new program remain when computing the student’s G.P.A. on their permanent record.

Transferring into certain programs, such as Culinary Arts, Clinical Laboratory Science, Dental Hygiene, Medical Assisting, Nursing, Occupational Therapy Assistant, and Phlebotomy may be limited by space availability as well as by the competitive nature of these programs.  Please refer to the description of the program of interest for additional information on admission requirements and the academic background of competitive applicants.  Please contact the Admissions Office, on the Fall River Campus in G Bldg., 774.357.2947, to learn more, including how to apply, schedule an appointment with a counselor or register for the appropriate information session based on your intended program of study.
