Western Colorado University is excited to announce its participation in the Bridge to Bachelor’s Degree Program with the Colorado Community College System (CCCS).

The program guarantees first-time students at any of the 13 CCCS colleges admission to nine four-year colleges and universities upon completion of an Associate Degree.

Participating in the Bridge to Bachelor’s Program ensures students access to personalized advising so credits transfer easily; scholarship opportunities to make a four-year institution more affordable; and a simple transfer process between two- and four-year institutions. It also may save students up to $10,000.

To participate, students must opt into the program within their first semester at a CCCS college, maintain a GPA of at least 2.0 and complete and Associate of Art or Associate of Science degree.
