Transfer Classes

The purpose of transfer is to facilitate the smooth transition of college course work taken at one college institution to another college for the benefit of the individual student. These courses are generally intended to move the student towards a baccalaureate degree. Bellingham Technical College provides educational course work and degree programs which “transfer” to upper-division institutions, both public and private. The notion of transfer is grounded in the peer-based accreditation status of the participating colleges in supporting student mobility of course work between and among the colleges.

**Note: If a Washington State Community or Technical College offers a similar course with an ampersand ("&") in the course prefix, it is easily transferable among CTC colleges. Students should check with 4-year colleges for acceptance/non-acceptance when transferring individual CTC courses.
