butte offers one on one experiences with professors who also teach at the local csu. they care about their students, and offer lots of help to struggling students. it is a great way to get general education out of the way before attending an university.
Nicole from Paradise, CA
This is a great school to prepare to transfer to a University. They have a broad selection of courses but you need to be on top of your registration in order to get the classes you want. This school is excellent for getting your GE classes and has transfer plans with most CA Universities.
Carrie from Orland, CA
Butte College is a great institution for students who may not know what their intended degree major will be. Butte College offers a great student services center where tutoring and work space is abundant. I'm very happy to have studied at butte due to the knowledge that is available at such low cost.
