Returning Learners

Finish what you started. Enrollment is now open for the upcoming semester at BCC.

Pick up right where you left off.

Maybe you dipped your toe into higher education but found the traditional four-year path overwhelming. Maybe you put your education on hold to raise a family. Or, maybe you simply weren't ready. Whatever the reason, now is the time to finish what you started. BCC offers so many opportunities — and the chance to achieve a debt-free future. 

BCC offers a quality, affordable college experience that transfers to hundreds of four-year schools, and our smaller class size means you'll get personalized, one-on-one support. We offer more opportunity that you can take with you, anywhere.
