Bridge to Your Bachelor's Program

La Roche College’s Bridge to Your Bachelor’s Program allows you to earn
La Roche College credits at the cost of community college tuition. If you have
60-plus credits from a regionally accredited community college and enroll for both the summer and fall semesters at La Roche, you can take up to 15 credits
during the summer for only $99 per credit hour.*

We work closely with you as a transfer student to make the most of your previously earned credits, so your degree is easily within reach.

(*Must be enrolled as a full-time student for the fall semester)

Get a head start on your four-year degree and save money at the same time.

La Roche offers:

  • More than 50 majors, including the 10 most popular majors among today’s college students
  • A truly personalized education, where your professors know you by name
  • A place for you to grow personally and academically

Our Bridge To Your Bachelor's Program Offers:

  • The opportunity to take summer classes at a rate comparable to community college tuition rates
  • The significant benefit of starting your bachelor’s degree program one semester earlier
  • An easy adjustment to a higher tuition and the increased rigor of a bachelor’s degree program
  • Significant savings to students
12 semester hours at $99 per credit = $1,188
12 semester hours at $610 per credit = $7,320
SAVINGS = $ 6,132

Students who were successful at a community college and have proven their abilities are likely to be successful at La Roche College. However, the cost increase from community college tuition to four-year private college tuition is exponential.
this one-time tuition rate not only incentivizes enrollment at La Roche, it also reduces the burden of the tuition increase.

Eligible students must meet the following requirements:

  • Completion of 60-plus credit hours with a regionally accredited community college
  • Enrollment in both the summer and fall semesters (must enroll as a full-time student in the fall semester)
  • Payment of a $400.00 non-refundable deposit for the fall semester, which will be applied to the cost of fall tuition

The La Roche College Bridge to Your Bachelor's Program offers a great economical route to your degree!
