Bachelor's Degree Completion Programs


These programs allow Bristol students to complete a bachelor’s degree by applying their completed associate’s degree toward the first two years of a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. Some of the programs allow Bristol credits beyond an associate’s degree to count toward the bachelor’s degree.

While each program is unique, they all share a common goal: to provide an affordable and convenient way for students to complete a bachelor’s degree in two years or less, often without having to travel further than their own home or the Bristol campuses. Visit  for a list of course-by-course agreements with other colleges.
