“It was an accelerated course. I was able to complete it quickly and it was more affordable. I have bills. And I didn’t want to have to increase my student loan any more than I had to.”

 - Guest student Alexandria Batuski, of Union City, Erie County, who graduated in May with a bachelor’s degree in accounting from a Pennsylvania state-related institution.

Jared Bakaysa

(BC3’s staff) walked me through everything I needed to do. It was all online, so I was able to work at my own pace. I was even able to work ahead. The credits transferred. I think that is one of the reasons why my adviser recommended BC3 because the credits were able to transfer easily to our institution.

- Guest student Jared Bakaysa, of Curwensville, Clearfield County, who graduated with a bachelor’s degree in sports management in January from a Pennsylvania public four-year institution.
