A transfer student is a student who has been previously enrolled at any college or university. If you have less than 12 credit hours in college level courses, please apply as a First Time student. However, you are still required to submit your transcript to the Office of Enrollment Services. Find our transfer student checklist here.

Step 1: Admissions application

Submit your admissions application online.

Step 2:  Submit Application Fee

Each applicant must submit a non-refundable $10.00 application fee.  This can be paid online or in person at our Bursar’s Office.

Submit an official unopened copy of transcripts from every college or university attended.  Students are encouraged to request that their transcript be sent electronically to BRCC from those colleges that participate in the eScript system.
