Bowie State University Teams Up With Baltimore City Community College

Bowie State University and Baltimore City Community College have formed an alliance that will make it easier for graduates of the community college to transfer to four-year degree programs at the historically Black university. Baltimore City Community College enrolls about 4,500 students according to the latest data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education. African Americans make up more than two thirds of the student body.

Under the agreement, Baltimore City Community College graduates will be able to transfer into 12 comparable academic programs at Bowie State University to complete their bachelor’s degrees. Education, nursing, psychology, business administration, and computer technology are among the 12 programs included in the agreement.

In addition, a unique feature of the agreement will enable select students in the community college’s Honor’s Program to transfer into the Honor’s Program at Bowie State University and receive a full scholarship covering in-state tuition and fees.

Aminta H. Breaux, president of Bowie State University, stated that “together with Baltimore City Community College, Bowie State University is advancing our Racing to Excellence strategic plan and vision, creating new collaborative educational partnerships. This partnership will build a meaningful pathway for BCCC students to continue their educational pursuits in innovative academic programs for today’s workforce.”
