Why on-line degrees?

Burlington County College has been offering distance education courses since 1978 to enable students to earn college credits without having to attend class on campus. Distance education courses are fully accredited college courses. Until recently distance education courses were offered in a variety of formats including internet, video, audio, and telecourses. However, in the interest of providing the highest quality educational opportunities possible, the College recently moved to a completely on-line course format. On-line courses provide greater interaction between the instructor and student, and student to student than any of the other formats, allowing students a dynamic educational experience.

When can I start?

BCC is committed to upgrading our technology and adding new courses at every opportunity. Starting with the Fall 2007 semester, it will be possible for students to apply, register and complete degree programs entirely on-line!

How do I start?

First, do a self-assessment. To be successful at distance education you should be: organized, motivated, independent, self disciplined and able to learn from written directions.  Is distance education right for you - take this quiz to find out! and you will need the appropriate technical skills: Do you have the Technical Skills - take this quiz to find out!

Now that you've decided that a distance education program is a good way to reach your educational goals, how do you get started? Simply follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Apply to BCC on-line
    Not only is applying on-line convenient, it's free.
  2. Take the College Assessment
    Unless you are exempt based on SAT scores or previous college courses.
  3. Apply for Financial Aid
    BCC offers an extremely low tuition rate, but filling out the FAFSA is still a good idea.
  4. SEEK OUT ACADEMIC ADVISING!
    This is not just a good idea, this is critical to your continued academic success!
  5. After advising, register on-line for one or more classes (see below) using WebAdvisor
    You may register online if you have no academic flags on your account. Check with your advisor. You can also register: in person, by mail or by fax.
  6. After registration, don't forget to pay your bill
    BCC offers a variety of payment options, but you will be deleted from classes for non-payment.
  7. You can buy your textbooks on-line from the BCC Bookstore
    Books are also available from a variety of other on-line sources.
  8. Check your BCC Student E-Mail Account for important information about your on-line courses
    Login instruction are also linked from the Distance Education webpage.
  9. Login to the Blackboard course management system to begin your studies
    Be sure to login to Blackboard frequently to be successful in your classes.

That's it.  Repeat from step #3 each semester until you have your degree!

For up-to-date information on distance education and course offerings, please visit the Distance Education homepage and the College homepage regularly throughout the semester.

What degrees are available completely on-line?

Currently, several fully on-line degrees and two certificate programs are available. Sample courses to complete each degree are shown below.  New courses are added all of the time and many alternate course selections are available.  That is why it is so important to SEEK OUT ACADEMIC ADVISING!  Your advisor will make sure that you create the program of study that most closely matches your academic goals.
