Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

I'm currently going to BCTC to get my prerequisites for the Sonography program at another school. Going to BCTC is allowing me to get my first few years of education out of the way without breaking the bank in doing so. The classes are very flexible, allowing me to continue working and the teachers are great for the most part.


Alumnus - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

This school is not military or veteran family friendly. Had I known this before I wouldn't have gone here. They have absolutely NO COMPASSION for military families and will not work with them when they are on limited income.. They will lie and lie and lie just to get you to sign up and then say they never said or guaranteed anything. GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING TO PROTECT YOUR SELF!!!!!
