Guaranteed Admission Program

Burlington County College's Guaranteed Admission Program is an inexpensive way for students to complete their bachelors' degree by providing a seamless transfer of courses and credits from BCC to many four-year colleges and universities. Through this program, students are guaranteed admission to selected schools after graduating from BCC provided that all the schools' criteria is met and a certain grade point average is maintained.

First, students must formally sign up for the program with with the Director of the BCC Transfer Center before they have completed 30 credits at BCC. Next, with the help of BCC staff, students identify an intended major and follow a structured academic plan to complete general education courses and lower division courses for that major. The academic plan will lead the student to the completion of an associates' degree and enable the student to transfer all (or nearly all) their credits to the four-year institution. Students are guaranteed admission to the four-year institution at junior-level status if they earn a pre-determined grade point average.
