BSCTC offers 27 programs and more than 200 credentials. The colleges Go2Transfer program allows for easy transfer of credits to four-year universities, while its Go2Work program allows students to earn industry-leading credentials in high-wage, high-demand fields in two years or less.

According to the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority, students who attend community and technical colleges in Kentucky save more than $7,000 a year. BSCTC offers convenient campus locations in Hager Hill, Paintsville, Pikeville and Paintsville and online course options.

By attending BSCTC, students receive a great education without getting weighed down in debt. With tuition set at $147 per credit in the fall, BSCTC has the lowest tuition of any provider in the state. Students pay less than half of what they would pay at four-year institutions. For students seeking to transfer, BSCTC offers a variety of transfer scholarships to four-year institutions across the state.

For many students, the most significant barrier in their pursuit of a college education is affordability, said Dr. Edwards. We have worked diligently to keep our cost low and our standards high, while focusing on student access, retention and success.

BSCTC will hold registration for the Fall semester on August 11-12 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day on all of its campuses.
