Blue Ridge Community and Technical College & APU Education Partnership

Blue Ridge Community and Technical College (BRCTC) and American Public University (APU) have established a partnership in education for transfer credit, enabling BRCTC students to apply their completed coursework towards an APU online degree program.

BRCTC students who earn the Associate of Arts Degree in Liberal Arts or the Associate of Applied Science Degree in Board of Governors on or after January 1, 2010 will be admitted to the B.A. in General Studies degree automatically, provided they meet all other general admission requirements (e.g., transcripts, applications, time lines, deadline dates) for general admission to American Public University.
