What Students Are Saying

2.46 Average Rating
I really did enjoy going to BRCC. I saved a TON of money and learned a lot. It is pretty easy to pass the classes if you do the work. Counselors were not very helpful to me at first, but I have found the right counselor for me. Now they make it really easy to transfer and provide many tools on the website.

It is one of the best community colleges in the state. It's a really good college for saving money, especially if you are going to be in college for a while. And even though its a community college the teachers are great.
