Who goes to Bristol Community College?

Students at Bristol come from every circumstance, representing every segment of the community at large. Our students tend to be older than the traditional college age, because many interrupted their education and are returning to start again. But there are many recent high school graduates, too, who take advantage of the affordable costs they find at Bristol Community College. More than 80 percent of our students are in the first generation of their family to attend college.

Approximately 13 percent of our students represent racial minority groups. Nearly 80 percent of our students work while attending school, and almost 60 percent receive financial aid. Because of the many responsibilities our students have in addition to school, we specialize in helping you fit educational goals into your busy life.

Our Enrollment Services and Advising staff can help you to determine your interests and strengths, either before or after you begin your education.
