Student Spotlight


I don’t really see the point of going somewhere else that is going to cost 30, 40, 50 percent more for the same degree. The affordability of BC3 makes it even more worthwhile than any other college.

Ashton Gallagher, Criminology Major

Community college tuition is usually thousands of dollars cheaper than tuition for private and public four-year universities … an outstanding opportunity to save some cash!
