Former Student Seeking Degree / Reverse Transfer

Did you finish your degree requirements but didn't receive your degree? Were you very close to earning your degree, but you transferred to another college before completing those remaining few classes? Either way, follow the steps below and earn what you learned.
 

Former Student Seeking Degree: If you didn't apply to graduate, but have all your credits, please complete steps 1 and 2.

Reverse Transfer: If you have taken additional college courses since leaving BSC and would like to apply to graduate, please complete steps 1, 2 and 3.
