About Bristol Community College
Our middle name is Community for a reason
From our humble beginnings in a single building in downtown Fall River, we have grown with the community to provide services from sites in Fall River, New Bedford, and Attleboro, as well as satellite locations around Bristol County. We offer innumerable opportunities to join our community of educators and students who enrich their lives at their convenience.
Since 1968 we have helped more than 28,000 Bristol County learners fulfill their goals to earn a degree, access work-related training, and find additional educational and leisure opportunities.
Bristol Community College is a comprehensive community college offering more than 120 career and transfer programs of study that lead to an associate degree in science, arts, applied sciences, and certificates of accomplishment or achievement. Students are able to transfer to many baccalaureate colleges throughout the state and country.
Our open admission policy, affordable costs, liberal financial aid resources, and flexible class schedules put a college education within your reach. Our goal is to provide educational opportunities and solid career preparation throughout southeastern Massachusetts.
Our students have access to a full range of public and private scholarships, grants, and other forms of financial assistance. During the 2010 – 2011 school year, approximately 40 percent of BCC students received some sort of aid and support.
Let us help you get the education you need to succeed. Bristol Community College changes the world by changing lives, learner by learner.
