Do you speak “BCTC”? Sometimes college involves not only new experiences but new language for the things students learn to do. We hear about “selective admission” and “hybrid courses,” for example, not to mention different types of degrees and programs. These terms may seem confusing, at first, but once we get familiar with them, our experience gets easier, and we feel in charge of it.
BCTC faculty and staff have identified a number of terms that seem important for students to understand. You can learn what you need to know about programs and focus areas; about degrees, diplomas, and certificates; about types of courses, and about resources you can use. This unit looks at terms some BCTC students showed they need to know.
