Transfer Pathways for Students

Bakersfield College offers you all the amenities of a top four-year university at a fraction of the cost. Begin your education at BC, then transfer and save yourself half the cost of your education. It’s the smart choice. A college degree is valuable. So is your time and money. With the BC transfer degrees, you can begin your college career here and earn an Associate’s Degree, and transfer to a Bachelor’s Degree program at any public university and many private universities in California. Our mission is to assist students to successfully transfer to a four-year university. In addition, we strive to provide guidance and services that enhance students’ ability to transfer to a four-year college or university of their choice.

Finish in 4

The Kern Promise’s Finish in 4 is a new program that supports the increase in student completion with an Associate Degree for Transfer in 60 semester units at BC. Students are then guaranteed admission to CSUB, in a similar major, and will complete an additional 60 semester units to earn a bachelor’s degree! The Finish in 4 efforts aim to guarantee students complete their transfer degree in 2 years at Bakersfield College and a baccalaureate degree in the following 2 years at CSUB. Together, the goal is to move students through to the next stage of their educational and career goals in a more efficient and impactful way.
