3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Making a semester schedule is beyond easy! They have multiple times of the same class per semester so you'll almost always find the course you need at the perfect time. However, registering for classes is a hassle on who your advisor is. I've been at BCC for a year now and both semesters I've had a problem with my advisor. He doesn't show up to appointments to provide guidance and registration information for the following semester. Because of my advisor, I wasn't able to sign up for classes right away and had to wait two weeks after registration started to sign up for my classes. I really just depends on who you get as an advisor.

Career Services: The post grad services at BCC are really helpful. They help you find a job in your field and really help you towards your future career. I haven't personally experienced working with the post grad career opportunities, but I've heard nothing but great things about them.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: They do their job alright, most of the time I have to go to Fall River's campus to ask questions.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: I don't really get along with one of my professors but my other two are friendly.

3 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: BCC isn't to expensive but Clark Atlanta University is.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: It's been a little difficult but I'm getting used to it.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: I like how its affordable for me to get an associates degree in general studies vs going to university where my one semester is the cost of my 2 years at community school. I DO NOT like how anyone to the public can enter the campus at any time.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: BCC is close to my house and was very convenient for me. Parking was a hassle and could use improvement. If i knew then what i know now, i would probably be done with school. Advisement sent me in the wrong direction, i had to do research and correct schedule on my own. Enrolling for a semester has been a hassle. Calling the school, no one could directly answer my questions and would forward me to someones voicemail and i would never get a call back.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I am a hands on visual learner who likes interacting with students. But what i like about online coarse is you always know where you stand in the class grade wise because it tracks all assignments and gives you your average. You actually get graded for homework assignments. The professors reply to emails immediately, and i could access the assignments around work as long as i made the deadline. With traditional classroom professors, you never know when they are going to reply to emails, you never know where you stand with grades, homework assignments arent graded/counted.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I wish the library had more computers. Sometimes the large area with computers is reserved for a class and leaves limited computers available. Students spend their time on social media while others have to use it for school related assignments.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I personally dont think that students should pay for printing if they are enrolled at BCC. I pay enough for the classes and others fees I've encountered. I like the idea of being able to sign into BCC's network under my name and It recognize me as a student. I dont like the idea of paying but do like the idea that its linked to my account. I only get printing credit under my username and pw if I have financial aid. I paid out of pocket the past two semesters, and have no money to print my assignments.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I really like how there is a payment plan available to non full time students. I dislike how I spent so much money on TEAS test. First time i took it I paid $50 to get a certain grade, and barely made it. With the other issues going on that semester, I retook it the next year, and it was then raised to $60, and the grade required was lower then the first time I had taken it. Because it was a different test I had to pay and retake it. It couldn't transfer over. The TEAS was stressful and shouldn't have an impact on the eligibility of applying to a program

College Sophomore

Career Services: I have no review on post-grad services at my school.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I recently been accepted to Dental Hygiene. Ive completed all my pre-requisites and requirements for the program. Once I start in September (Fall 2014) I will be able to focus strictly on the Dental Hygiene Classes.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Im glad I am able to access a PIN to register for classes on my own. I haven't had a good experience with Advisement. Ive wasted money and time on classes that I never needed and don't count for me. I did my own research and accomplished an associates degree on my own.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: I dont have an opinion on Student Body at Bristol Community College

2 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: My concentration has been Dental Hygiene for over 2 years. A (B-) in CHM 115 is needed to apply to the program. There is only 1-2 classes offered, and they fill up super fast. If your not able to get into the class your unable to to apply. Which puts a student behind a year. Fall 2011 I enrolled into CHM 115, and had a bad experience with the teacher. I withdrew. Which put me behind. I had to wait a year to enroll again. Fall 2012 I received a C+ which still wasnt good enough to apply and put me behind another year. ( By February first you have to meet the requirements to apply) At that point i was running out of classes to take to remain full time to receive financial aid. I only needed this one class to apply. So I ended up qualifying to graduate with the C+ and get my associates in general health science. My goal was to still do dental so I came back Fall 2013 and retook CHM 115 and finally achieved my goal and got a B+. I finally applied to Dental and just got my letter of acceptance to the program. Since I only had that CHM 115 to take last semester I had to pay out of pocket, and because i wasnt full time and i graduated, payments on my loans were expected. Ive had to open up credit card and do a payment plan to pay off this class. My future relied on this.

Campus Resources: There is a small gym in one of the buildings but other than that not much, the library needs WAY more room for students to study and do work though. You always have to wonder around campus to find a quite place to do work.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: In many of the buildings it is possible to print from any room and it's only 10 cents per page. They also give you a "free" $20 of printing every semester which is super helpful. The internet has only crashed once since ive been at the school and I have all my devices connected to the server and its really secure and reliable.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I think that because the campus is small it is easy to get around and do what you need to throughout the day. There is a huge number of classes for such a small number of classes and they will even create a directed studies class just for you if its something you need to graduate but they are not offering that semester.

1 College Junior

Student Body: Although there is a lot of diversity, 99% of the students are there because they kind of had to go not because there are really interested in learning and moving on to a great future.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: Online classes are great because this is a commuter campus, staying home in your PJ's everyonce and a while during the week is wonderful!

1 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The only problem with financial aid is if you don't get it. Many students will use part of their financial aid money towards gift cards in the bookstore, while there are some students that don't get any money at all from the school.
