At BCC, you can earn the same credits that you would earn at a residential school - at a substantial discount, of course. Choose from programs in Nursing, STEM and Allied Health, Business and Culinary options or Education, Liberal and Fine Arts, Criminal Justice and more!
Just like every other school, BCC offers an extended slate of online and hybrid courses. The credits you earn here will still be valid in a semester or a year, and the MassTransfer program ensures that they'll transfer directly to many traditional four-year programs. (And if you think you might be interested in MCLA, UMass, or another public college, check out the Commonwealth Commitment program to learn about where you can go after BCC, with less student debt.)
