Do you need or desire to continue your academic studies? Consider completing a bachelor’s degree by choosing a path below that IJʿ¼ has created with our transfer partners. Or if you prefer to complete a transferable Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree, work with your advisor to complete the Illinois IAI General Education Core Curriculum along with your career program requirements.

Whether you are beginning your career program, nearing graduation or already in the workforce, BHC can help you further your education and career opportunities.

Career Transfer Checklist

As a career student thinking of transferring, meet with your current BHC advisor and program faculty as early as possible during your studies at IJʿ¼.

You’ll make the best use of your time and financial resources with advance planning to streamline course selection and prepare for a smoother transfer.

See how credit requirements differ between career and transfer programs in our Educational Paths Guide. Notice that the “AAS Transfer Path” typically has more general education courses than those required in your career program.

View the Transfer Planning Guides from Career Programs below to find paths from your BHC career program. Also visit Explore Colleges and Universities to learn more about transfer schools.

Your advisor may recommend course substitutions in your career program to meet a transfer program requirement in communication, English, speech, accounting, math or computer science. You will need permission from your BHC faculty chairperson before substituting a course in your career program.

Get ready to transfer from IJʿ¼. Coordinate the timing of these steps with your BHC advisor.

    1. Apply to the transfer school. This can be done up to a year before the semester you transfer.
    2. Confirm that approved course substitutions are recorded on your BHC transcript.
    3. Submit unofficial transcripts to the transfer school for an early evaluation.
    4. If advisable, register for additional BHC courses that will be applied to the transfer program. Determine if you’re eligible for financial aid from BHC for courses beyond those required for your career program. Completing a Change of Major/Program form may be recommended.

Apply for BHC Graduation from your career program.
