Many Blue Water Middle College students plan to earn a bachelor’s degree at a four-year college or university  after graduating from St. Clair County Community College. 

The sooner a student knows what college they expect to attend after SC4, the better decisions they can make when it comes to choosing classes that will transfer and count toward their bachelor's degree program at the new school.
