Transfer Out

We at Career and Transfer Services are always excited to assist students who are preparing to further their education at a 4-year institution.  It is essential that you begin planning as soon as possible for the transfer process. If you intend to graduate before you transfer, then it is imperative that you meet with a representative from the registrar’s office.

  1. Transfer Plan: The primary reason for early and continuing transfer planning is to ensure that your degree program and curriculum are consistent with your future career or educational plans. Waiting until the last semester to plan may limit your options. Articulation agreements are excellent tools for transfer planning. They provide a course of action for students, including an outline of the most appropriate courses to take. Furthermore, some articulation agreements encourage students to continue in the same course of study they started at BCC, while others may lead students toward a different career or educational pathway.

Transfer Information and Program Planning System (TIPPS)

If you are considering transferring to another CUNY college, the Transfer Information & Program Planning System allows you to evaluate your credits.  Therefore, you are able to complete a preliminary evaluation of your credits, research available majors, courses and articulation agreements in the CUNY system and read about the transfer policies. TIPPS does not replace a meeting with your transfer specialist.  It is always best to verify your search results before making any final decisions. Click here for CUNY TIPPS.
