Transfer Credits
Applicants who have completed courses at an accredited college or university may receive transfer credit for courses which apply to one of the BBC&S programs and which reflect a grade of “C-” or above. Credits from non-accredited schools must be validated.

Prior Learning Assessment
The Portfolio Assessment process allows students to submit life experiences for potential college credit.  

Accepted BBC&S students may register for PA800 - Portfolio Assessment and prepare a portfolio of life experiences to be evaluated for credit.
