• Both presidents of CCBC and UB meet to discuss new program

CCBC and University of Baltimore have introduced the new BeeLine program, designed to accelerate the transfer and completion of UB undergraduate programs for CCBC students.

Through BeeLine, CCBC students are offered special incentives and structured pathways for attaining a four-year degree from UB. Students are granted guaranteed admission and are able to seamlessly transfer into any of UB’s bachelor’s degree programs – excluding those with special permission requirements. The UB application fee will be waived, plus CCBC students with a 2.5 GPA or higher are eligible for a transfer scholarship renewable up to the completion of their bachelor’s program.

“CCBC is excited about this new partnership with UB that makes student transfers between the two institutions effortless,” said CCBC President Sandra Kurtinitis. “Students find comfort in knowing that their hard-earned credits will be accepted when they move on to pursue a bachelor’s degree. This new partnership creates an excellent opportunity for CCBC students and provides both institutions the opportunity to move more students through the educational pipeline.”

Other incentives built into the agreement include UB accepting CCBC Honors students with a 3.5 GPA or higher into its Helen P. Denit Honors program, the opportunity for CCBC students to participate in UB’s accelerated bachelor’s to master’s degree program, and UB’s promotion of reverse transfer for CCBC students who transferred to UB without completing their associate degree.

“We are always thrilled to have CCBC students come to UB to start the next phase of their higher education journey,” said University of Baltimore President Kurt L. Schmoke. “Our BeeLine program is designed to make transferring a seamless, enjoyable process. All of us at UB are excited to join our colleagues at CCBC in launching this program – we’re expecting many great things to be inspired by the partnership.”
