Adult Learners


As an adult student, your needs, motivations, responsibilities, life experiences, and comfort level with a college environment are likely very different than those of a traditional-aged college student. For that reason, BCC is offering a FREE one-credit hybrid College Success Seminar (CSS101) for adult students.

This CSS course will take place prior to the start of the Fall semester, allowing you to learn about important resources available to you at BCC that will help you meet your goals, gain confidence in your skills and experiences and understand how they will benefit you in the classroom environment. Get updates on study skills, current college technologies, regional job market information, how to fit college into your hectic life (not to mention budget) and more!
