Transfer Advising | BRCC, Virginia

Our College/University Transfer programs let you take your first two years of classes here, earn an associates degree, and transfer to a four year school to work on a bachelor’s degree. Virginia state schools usually prefer transfers with the A.A.&S. degree instead of transferring course credits (Virginia State Policy on College Transfer - PDF requires Adobe Acrobat Reader). 

Transfer Advisors

You will need to work with both a BRCC transfer advisor and a transfer advisors from your transfer school to select classes.

Transfer Guides

Advising guides help you pick courses that will fulfill the degree requirements of BRCC and transfer to your four year school.  Some of these guides are major specific so it's best to pick your major and four-year school as soon as possible.

  • VCCS articulation agreements - tells you how community college classes will transfer
