Transfer Services 

Transfer Services provides a variety of programs, workshops, and educational material for students interested in continuing their academic studies beyond Bristol Community College. The Transfer Services webpage shares information and resources as students are getting started with planning their transfer process. Through the proactive advising process and transfer counseling, students can begin preparing for their transfer as soon as their first semester.  

Where do students transfer? 

Hundreds of Bristol students successfully transfer to many public and private institutions every year, including Bridgewater State University, UMass Dartmouth, UMass Amherst, Southern New Hampshire University, Laboure College of Healthcare, and many more.  Visit our Common Transfer Schools webpage for more information.
