Report: BCCC boosts salaries by 40 percent

Press Release:

    WASHINGTON, N.C.     New research by the N.C. Community College System and the N.C. Department of Labor shows that Beaufort County Community College excels in providing education and job training that helps its students increase their salaries when they leave the college.

    Students who attend BCCC can expect, on average, to see their salaries increase by 40 percent upon leaving the college as compared to when they began their studies.

    According to the report, BCCC ranks second among the state's 58 community colleges - behind only Sandhills Community College - and first among community colleges in Northeastern North Carolina in the effect on wage earnings of those who attend the college.

    The N.C. Association of Community College presidents voted in July to approve new performance measures that take into account the wage impact of each school.

    "Beaufort County Community College is proud of the role it plays in the economic development of the region it serves and the positive role it plays in the wages and the futures of its students," says BCCC President Barbara Tansey. "This report is one more verification of that role."

    The wage report is just the latest that shows the importance of Beaufort County Community College to the region.

    An earlier report by the N.C. Community College System and the N.C. Department of Labor indicates that 95 percent of BCCC's students are employed or enrolled in a four-year college or university within two years of graduation.

    Another statewide study this year - by Economic Modeling Specialists International - showed that BCCC adds about $99.5 million to the regional economy each year. It also found that BCCC's operational spending during the study year was about $13 million in added regional income - equivalent to creating 497 jobs.
