Student Supports & Credit Transfer

Robust support services are key to student success at Bard Early College. Students are supported through the College Transfer Office, learning centers, faculty office hours, counseling, faculty and peer tutoring, and student activities offices. 

Credit Transfer

  • Bard Early College is designed with the intention of creating a smooth transition for students who wish to pursue a four-year degree following graduation. Bard Early College students successfully transfer most or all of their credits. We have a number of resources available to support the transfer of credits including the college transfer office and articulation agreements.
  • An articulation agreement traditionally refers to an official partnership between institutions, consisting of a pre-existing credit match for students looking to transfer credits earned at one institution to another. Formal agreements with Bard Early College may also include specialized admissions policies, scholarships, and additional accommodations. Students should contact their College Transfer Director for more information on the specifics of a school’s articulation.
  • Colleges and universities across the country accept Bard credits, including public institutions, from SUNY, CUNY, Rutgers, The Ohio State, and University of Maryland campuses, to the University of California, and many independent colleges, including Oberlin, Goucher, and Duke. Colleges and universities with whom BEC currently has formal articulation agreements regarding the transfer of the full associate’s degree include Beloit College, Bowie State University, The College of New Jersey, The College of St. Rose, Drew University, Goucher College, McDaniel College, Mount St. Mary’s University, Ohio Northern University, Pace University, and University of Baltimore. Students with questions about transfer should contact their CTO director.
