One of the great thing about attending Bristol community college is the mass transfer program. The mass transfer is a program in which BCC have agreements with many schools throughout the state of Massachusetts. When graduate for BCC with and associates degree and a apply to an accredited Mass college or university you may gain a variety of benefits such as; no application fee, guarantee transfer of credits, and guaranteed admission, no essay, and depending on your GPA you may be eligible to receive a 33% tution reduction. UMass Dartmouth offers a 100% tution wavier for those with a 3.0 or better. Something like the mass transfer program really helps the process towards a four year school mor attainable and less stressful. I like this also encourage s students to purse a four year degree, and helps them realize their goals and aspirations are attainable.
Bristol community college has great staff members who help you every step of the way. Also it is very affordable. Classes are flexible; from day classes, to evening class, the have the class and staff members to fit your needs. The are several campuses; fall River(which is the main campus), new Bedford, attelboro, and Taunton. I attended the new Bedford campus. Attending this campus was very convenient considering that I did not have a car. Located in the heart of downtown, there are plenty of places to eat from dunkin dounut, to Minerva's pizza. class sizes were very balanced. Overall I really enjoyed the 3years I spent there. I was able to get my associates degree at the fraction of the cost. Bristol community college made the path towards earning a bachelor's degree in elementary education easier both financially and academically.
I have learned not only my studies but so much about myself sinvr starting my classes last fall. The professors are so helpful and accomodating to their students. I'm excited for my next upcoming semester!
