Bard High School Early College Manhattan

College Transfer Office (CTO)

The College Transfer Office (CTO) assists students in preparing for college and transferring college credits to four-year degree programs. Regardless of whether students apply to college as freshmen or as transfer students, the associate’s degree curriculum is designed to enable students to matriculate with up to two years of college credit at colleges and universities throughout the United States and abroad. Students may also elect to continue for another three or four years of college as undergraduates. The number of credits ultimately transferred depends not only on the student’s wishes, but also on the policies of the colleges and universities to which they apply.

What We Do

The College Transfer Office (CTO) has a number of goals, including:
  • Encouraging BHSEC students to be well-informed, confident, and ambitious when considering their transition from BHSEC to four-year colleges;
  • Educating students and parents about the college search and application process, including applying for financial aid, and helping students navigate these processes; and
  • Educating four-year colleges about our unique program.
