Don't let COVID-19 deter you
Higher education in 2020 will be like no other year before. Uncertainty is everywhere this summer; questions about who will be on campus, what the educational experience will be like, the costs, and the risks all remain unanswered
What if you could answer some of those questions right now?
At BCC, you can earn the same credits that you would earn at a residential school - at a substantial discount, of course - without having to deal with the uncertainty and expense of remote instruction on an isolated campus.
Just like every other school, this fall 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 Committment program to learn about where you can go from BCC.)

Classes at BCC are taught by accomplished, credentialed professors who are committed to the success of students in the Berkshires.
Why pay more for the same credits?
BCC’s reasonable costs and outstanding faculty and programs make it a great value in higher education.
