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.

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.

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.

Academic Flexibility: Once I got into my classes, I had a pretty good time with them. There was probably only one professor that made it difficult for his students, but other than that, my experience was good.
