Featured Student Profile: Chris
For Chris, and so many others like him, a bachelor’s degree began at Bristol.
After graduating from Bishop Stang High School in North Dartmouth, Chris came to Bristol Community College for an affordable path to a bachelor’s degree. By starting here and enrolling in the MassTransfer program, he saved thousands of dollars on his degree. “It’s a gift to pass on to your children – zero debt after college,” Chris’s mom says.
Small class sizes, attentive faculty and seamless transfer options led Chris on a path to success after Bristol. He is set to graduate from UMass Amherst’s Isenberg School of Management in May 2020.
An affordable, high-quality education. Chris found this – and more – at Bristol Community College.

All students enrolled in a degree or certificate program are required to take college placement tests in order to ensure appropriate placement in classes.

Testing at Bristol is free and students are allowed one re-test.
Students can expect to finish the exam in 1.5 to 2 hours.
