The staff is so helpful and encouraging. I had so many questions when I started my college experience 20 years after I graduated from high school.From the counselors to the financial aid staff I have been so impressed with there knowledge and help. I have met many other classmates of all ages I never feel out of place. The diversity of ages, stages and experiences is a wonderful thing about BTC. My education that I have received so far has advanced my career. I-am continuing further in my education and the dean is so involved in the new programs I feel that this is why the school is so successful.

I've been attending Bellingham Technical College for about two years now. I love it here - especially the science department, which is where I primarily take my classes. The majority of the professors I've learned from care greatly about their students' success and spend a great deal of effort on their course materials. The hands-on experience of the technical college comes through even in humanities classes and provides an excellent method of learning in science classes. I can't wait to begin my program (surgery technology) in this upcoming fall quarter.
I haven't had too many negative experiences with BTC. I originally attended back in 2010 and enjoyed every minute of it.
It's changed a lot now that I'm going back, but not necessarily in a negative way. Somehow everything works swimmingly and I've had some hiccups along the way, but everyone has been very accommodating and things have been falling into place. I'm very excited to attend the Dental Assisting program and am looking forward to getting my certification and going into the workforce. I am thankful Bellingham Technical College is here to help me and get me in the right direction.
