BTC students can complete the first year of a bachelor's degree (45 quarter credits of general education requirements) by taking general education courses at Bellingham Technical College and transferring them to any other public, and most private, higher education institutions in Washington State.
First Year Transfer List of general education courses
- Taking courses in the Washington 45 will not guarantee admission to a four-year institution, nor will it replace the Direct Transfer Agreement, Associate of Science Tracks I and II or any Major Related Program agreement.
- For transfer purposes, a student must have a minimum grade of C or better (2.0 or above) in each course completed from this list.
- Students who transfer Washington 45 courses must still meet a receiving institution's admission requirements and eventually satisfy all their general education requirements and their degree requirements in major, minor and professional programs.
- Although these courses are listed under categories, the actual course may satisfy a different general education category at a receiving institution.

The "&" in a BTC course number indicates Washington State Community and Technical College Common Course Numbering (CCN). CCN identifies common courses within the 34 community and technical colleges in Washington State, and makes transferring between those institutions, and to four-year colleges and universities, as easy as possible for students, advisors, and receiving institutions.
