Course Equivalency Guides
The Transfer Affairs Office has negotiated a number of course equivalency guides with area colleges. If you want to transfer to any of the colleges listed below and would like to know how the courses you choose at BCC will transfer, you can view guides for each of the schools listed below. Please keep in mind that while every effort is made to provide current and accurate information, the course equivalencies are subject to change. Course equivalencies are added and revised on a continuing basis. The exclusion of courses does not necessarily mean that the courses are not transferable; they may not yet have been added to the database or may currently be under consideration for transfer. Students are responsible to meet the college and program requirements applicable at the time of enrollment at the baccalaureate college or university.
MassTransfer Course Equivalency Database
The online course equivalency database allows you to search for equivalent courses among our public community colleges, state universities and UMass campuses.
It is meant to assist with transfer planning, but the information presented here is subject to change and is not a guarantee of acceptance or transferability. Please see your academic program advisor for official equivalency and transfer information.
Please note: The database will continue to grow as additional course equivalencies are identified. Massachusetts public colleges and universities entered the course equivalency process in stages: first the community colleges, then the state universities, and then the campuses of the University of Massachusetts. As a result, you will see more courses in the database from the colleges and universities that entered the process earlier.

Additional Course to Course Equivalency Guides
Many, though not all, colleges have transfer course equivalency databases on their websites. These databases can tell you how your BCC courses will transfer. You can often find these databases by searching for them on the institution's website using terms such as "transfer credit" or "transfer course equivalency." The guides for some of these colleges are listed below.
