Computer Science Transfer A2B MassTransfer

Program Goals Statement

The Computer Science Transfer option prepares students to finish their education in Computer Science at a four-year institution. The CIS faculty worked closely with the Computer Science faculty at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, and the resulting program provides a seamless transition to Computer Science at UMass Dartmouth. The program also parallels the computer science offerings at other local colleges and universities.

Program information

• The first two years of a degree in Computer Science can be done within this option at Bristol.

• Transfer credit for any Computer Information Systems (CIS or CIT) course must be approved by the CI Department Chair or by a full-time CI faculty member. 

Note: Students may be required to obtain and use specific hardware, operating systems, or applications.


• Students should talk with the Transfer office for information about colleges.

After Bristol

• Recent graduates have transferred to Bridgewater State College, Rhode Island College, Roger Williams University, Bryant University, University of Massachusetts Amherst and University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.

• Bristol participates in the statewide MassTransfer program and has developed many program-to-program transfer articulation agreements which guarantee admission and credit transfer.
