Northern Colorado Bridges to Baccalaureate (B2B)



Bridges to Baccalaureate (B2B) is a partnership program between Colorado State University (CSU) and Front Range Community College (FRCC) to help students transfer smoothly from the community college to CSU or other 4-year institution. Although the primary FRCC campus is Larimer Campus in Fort Collins, all current FRCC students are eligible to participate.

Who does B2B serve?

B2B serves FRCC students who are interested in studying science and have intention to transfer to a 4-year university or college and obtain a bachelor’s degree. Students who plan to attend CSU are best served, but B2B also works with students who have interests in transferring elsewhere. B2B is funded by the National Institutes of Health in a special effort to support underrepresented students who have interests in biomedical or psychological sciences. The program is free of charge to all students.
