Transition from an associate to a bachelor's program

Our Associate to Bachelors Program (A2B) lets you earn an associate degree that transfers to a Columbia College baccalaureate program.

We'll help integrate coursework with bachelor's degree requirements to provide a seamless transition. Participating in the A2B program locks you into a catalog year so you can be confident your degree plan won't change.
