Adult Learners

Specially trained counselors in the Admissions, TRIO, and Project Link Offices offer services to adult students (also known as non­traditional students) which includes anyone returning to school after a long absence, students with children, displaced workers, and all students over 23.

More than half of BCC's student population is 23 years old or older. Some never graduated from high school and need to earn a GED. Others have their GED, but are worried about their ability to succeed in college. Services to help these students make a smooth transition back to school while they balance the other demands of their adult lives include informational and personal growth workshops, admissions and supportive counseling, college and community resource referrals, and information on funding and childcare.
