Alumni Spotlight

“I love BC Online. I have taken numerous classes online, and have never had an issue. The professors have been very responsive. While pursuing my AA now, I am working towards a higher degree. I work full time, so it’s hard for me to find time to go to school especially while juggling family life, but with BC online, I am able to continue working towards my goals!”

Alumni Spotlight

"I had attended many classes over the years, one at a time and when I got serious I ended up going to BC to complete my A.A. and then to NSU to complete my Bachelor's degree. The common denominator of all the work I do, is to leave things better than where they started".

It took seven years of preparation and I was able to make that dream a reality with the help of my Powerplant License from BC.
