Step Up to College

Heather Harrison, Coordinator, ext. 3387

The Step Up to College program at the Fall River and New Bedford campuses is designed to provide support and college coursework to students making the transition from alternative high school diploma equivalency programs and Adult Learning Center programs to college-level work at BCC. Students become part of a learning community and take their courses as a group. The program provides students with an orientation to the College, supplemental instruction, small classes, and individual advisement.

This is a part-time day or evening program; tuition and books are offered at no cost to eligible participants. Step Up to College is supported in part by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education as an ABE Transitions program. Courses usually include: CSS 101 and CSS 105, ENG 090, MTH 021, and RDG 090.
