You can earn your Nichols bachelor's degree conveniently at your local community college, thanks to our partnerships with two of Massachusetts' leading community colleges. If you’re currently working towards an associate's degree in a Business Transfer program at one of our partner schools, then you’re eligible for Nichols A to B & Beyond program.

"I am so glad I found the A to B program. It has really changed my life! I recommended it to my colleague and she has already enrolled, too!" Angela Todaro, A to B student

How it works

Enroll in your school’s Business Administration Transfer Program and maintain a minimum 2.0 grade point average.

Apply to the program before the second semester of your second year of your associate’s degree program.

If accepted, you’ll enroll in a structured third-year business program based on Nichols transfer requirements, at the same per credit cost of your community college. In your final year, you’ll take Nichols College courses taught by Nichols professors.

Your routine won’t change. Throughout, you’ll continue to study at the same community college right through to graduation. Or, if you prefer, take your final year courses online.
