News Release:

    WASHINGTON, N.C.     Thinking about future careers can be both exciting and intimidating-and prospective students may only know about a few careers through their families or teachers-but right now, with tuition and fees covered through 2023 through the Beaufort Promise, there has never been a better opportunity for them to find a program that sparks their interest. On October 7 from 5:00-7:00 p.m., Beaufort County Community College will hold an open house in the Boyette Conference Center in Building 10 to give parents and students a chance to ask questions of professors from many of BCCC's programs and to explore potential careers and transfer opportunities. Radio station KISS FM will be broadcasting live from the conference center during the event.

    BCCC will showcase its career and technical education programs such as automotive, agribusiness, business administration, information technology, cosmetology, criminal justice, early childhood education, teacher preparation, electrical engineering, human services, mechanical engineering, medical lab, medical/office administration, nursing, welding, fire, EMS, and nurse aide.

    BCCC also has a number of transfer agreements with universities like East Carolina, UNC-Wilmington, N.C. State, N.C. A&T, and Elizabeth City State. Students can find out how they can to stay close to home and get the one-on-one attention they need to succeed in their classes before transferring to a larger university.

    Applying to college and financial aid can be confusing to navigate, so BCCC financial aid and admissions staff will be on hand to help students start the application process. Through the Beaufort Promise, BCCC is matching students with state and federal funding to cover all of their tuition and fees through May 2023, but they will need to fill out a FAFSA and a Beaufort Promise Application.

    Early college high school students need to start in their program as rising ninth graders, so parents with middle school-aged children are encouraged to come find out more.

    There will also be a number of displays both static and interactive. Students can tour labs and classrooms, seeing the latest technologies with which they would be working. Current students who bring a prospective student have the chance to win two sets of Air Pods. It is a drop-in session, so families can choose how much time they spend at the event.
