BCC, College of Saint Rose Create Two New Articulation Agreements
Dec 16, 2013
Two new transfer agreements between The College of Saint Rose and Berkshire Community College will expand opportunities for western Massachusetts students who want to earn both two-year degrees and full four-year bachelor's degrees.

One enables BCC students who earn an associate degree in business administration to transfer seamlessly to the bachelor of science in business administration program at Saint Rose.

A second enables BCC graduates who earn a degree in criminal justice to continue their study in the Saint Rose criminal justice, behavior and law program and achieve a bachelor of science degree.

Both agreements, known as "articulation agreements," spell out the specific courses that students should complete at BCC and their equivalents at Saint Rose. Students may transfer a maximum of 62 credits from BCC. BCC graduates of both programs are guaranteed entrance into Saint Rose with junior status.

Articulation agreements enable students to plan and sequence their course work at a two-year college in such a way that ensures the smooth transition into upper-level course work without loss of credit, enabling students to reach their goal of a four-year degree.

The College of Saint Rose has articulation agreements with community colleges and other institutions throughout the Capital Region, Hudson Valley and beyond, designed to help students seeking to continue their education. Saint Rose and BCC continue to explore opportunities for similar agreements between additional programs of study.
