5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: The online courses are very user-friendly. The instructors are also quick to responding to emails whenever an assignment is unclear. Some of the classes have been extremely helpful the real world too. I've been graded on cover letters and resumes.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: Each program has a high rate of job opportunities. The instructors also help students with employment post-grad.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The class sizes are kept at a reasonable number. I feel comfortable asking questions because there's never too many people.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The career prospects are amazing. Each program allows students to work hands-on with their desired career. Each program offers externships so that they know what to expect when out in the real world.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I really enjoy that the school provides a real dental clinic for students to work with.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think each department that I have dealt with has been helpful with getting back into school.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: All of the instructors that I have met are always willing to help their students. They answer questions and provide advice without doing the work for the students. They also work to make assignments easier to understand while checking to make sure that assignments are indeed turned in.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is not at all hard to start or enhance a career after or even during college. Part time jobs and internships are available for many of the students at BTC, and the teachers here help students with being successful.

Online Courses: I had only one online class and it took some time to get used to it. It seemed very different from a regular class because of the interaction between people as well as the time and location. There was some peer-to-peer interaction, but only sometimes. The class also felt strange because I could do it at home late at night or whenever I found free time at school. As a result, my 'sessions' would take place at various times for varying lengths of time; making things flexible but hard at first to figure out how distribute my work throughout the week.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I found it easy to choose which classes to take because I was given a list of the classes I needed and then could choose between different times to have that class. The whole scheduling process seemed very easy to me.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: At school, I have learned so much in the past few months. I am often trying things that are new to me as well as getting more experience and knowledge regarding the tools and materials around me. Some of the things that I do in the machining program surprise me, and my instructors help me all the way. Also, the instructors are working to make the machine shop more efficient and organized the way a shop would be in the real world. Overall, all these things make me confident that I will be successful after college.

Overall Experience: Bellingham Technical College is a great school because while it is not perfect, the teachers and staff work to make the campus better for the students as well as helping students be successful.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have not yet begun attendance at this school but I am registered for the upcoming quarter for a full time class-load. I can't yet speak to the suggested topics, but I can say it has been a wonderful experience so far.

Overall Experience: I know several students who have attended BTC and have heard only great things, both about their experience as a student and a graduate.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Bellingham Technical College seems like a wonderful school so far. At every turn I've been met with friendliness and attentiveness. I'm very excited to begin classes this spring. My only experience so far has been getting everything in order to being attendance, and everyone has been extremely helpful. I think what makes BTC unique is that they go above and beyond to help their students every step of the way.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: My program is two years, after our first year they changed our program entirely and merged civil and surveying together. This messed up the classes the teachers had to teach us and the new first year students. Our credits changed, the class lectures changed, and confusion grew.

Our required classes are set in stone and only have one time and day for it. If you can sign up for one class due to the timing, you are screwed. You have to wait an entire year just to take it at the same time as everyone else.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I have only had a few hybrid classes and they were straight forward and provided all the information needed to complete the course.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Small school, which means not that many teachers for your program. We have to make due with what we have. One out of my two teachers really sucks with prepping lectures and answering questions. Due to this, us students have to rely on one another a lot more. It makes our problem solving skills strengthen at least. The staff here is super helpful and we all have jobs waiting for us once we graduate thanks to the connections this school and staff have provided. They give us honest answers about the work force and it makes figuring out our paths a lot easier.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Local work forces meet with our school all the time to give feedback and inform us what they are looking for in employees today. Internships are always available and career fairs are always an option. The career center is helpful if your program is a bit more broad. Tutors can only help so much, hence why us students in the program rely on one another so much.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: My program is very specific and we only have two teachers to rely on. Each teacher knows their field though, so if I am having trouble in one class, only one teacher can help answer those questions. The students in this program have to rely on one another a lot to trouble shoot problems and work together as a group when the teacher is unavailable.

The workload keeps you busy and you really need time out of your life to be in the lectures and in the computer lab working on perfecting projects.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Once you get into your program, you have your own building you go to every day. You have your own space to work on projects during your free time and to collaborate with other students and teachers in your field. It is a small school and class sizes are small and that means lots of one on one time with your teachers and other staff. Students here rely on one another a lot to help problem solve while teachers are unavailable. Everyone in my program is like family to me and I would stay as long after class as I needed to in order to help anyone out. They would do the same for me and obviously the same for anyone else. The staff here will gladly help you make connections and get out into the work force.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Every department of Bellingham Technical College that I have had to deal with have been nothing but helpful and supportive. I feel like I have a team behind me making sure I succeed. If I need help, they are right there for me, all I have to do is ask. The instructors are helpful as well as understanding. I think this school is down to earth and they know each student has a life besides school and they support us through it all. I was new to this school, I starting spring quarter, There was only about a week maybe two before school started, the staff guided me through the beginning process and I was able to start even with my funding in place. At first I wasn't even sure exactly what I was going to school for but they advised me through the different options and I was able to decide and fill good about my decision. Here I am starting my fourth quarter at Bellingham Technical College. I know that I have a big group of BTC staff behind me.
