No worries. Big Sandy Community and Technical College (BSCTC) got your back.

BSCTC has launched a special 12-week session that begins September 12.

“Students that didn’t start in August should not have to wait until January to take classes,” said Kelli Hall, dean of career and workforce development at Big Sandy Community and Technical College. “This accelerated pathway is perfect for students who could not start in August or students who thought they wanted to go away for school and decided to stay home.”

BSCTC offers the state’s lowest tuition, 30 programs and more than 200 industry-recognized credentials. Hall stressed that many of the college’s career education programs will offer 12-week programs.

“We know many students are looking for a program that leads to a credential and a job,” Hall added. “That’s the objective of our career education programs. They are aligned with the needs of business and industry, and programmed to lead to employment.”

Financial aid is still available to those who qualify. Hall said it is important for students to begin the application process as soon as possible.
