At Brazosport College, we are focused on student success initiatives that provide the tools for you to reach your personal goals. We’re proud of our outstanding faculty, staff and many community partners to make this possible. Whether it be developing innovative workforce programs to meet the requirements for entry into the petrochemical industry or adding new programs to provide needed training in health care professions, we’re constantly looking for ways we can grow and prosper with our community.
Thanks to the strong support of our community, our beautiful campus features state-of-the-art facilities that play a key role in training a skilled workforce and in recruiting outstanding faculty and staff. Currently, we make a difference in the lives of more than 20,000 students each year through our credit programs, non-credit programs and customized training.
We are proud of the economic impact we have in this community. For example, students who receive an associate degree from Brazosport College and enter the petrochemical industry within the Gulf Coast region earn, on average, $86,000 a year in wages.
There are many pathways available to students. Twenty-five percent of our credit students are co-enrolled in high school while attending Brazosport College. Working with counselors, students can choose pathways that meet their personal goals. Whether pursuing certificates, an associate degree or a bachelor degree, we can help families save thousands of dollars. In fact, most of our students graduate with little or no student loan debt. For those needing tuition assistance, we have resources available through financial aid, as well as many scholarships provided by the Brazosport College Foundation.
Career training at Brazosport College equals great job opportunities in our community. I encourage you to go to the college website and look at a link called “Career Coach.” You’ll find the most recent information on available job openings, salaries and training programs at BC. With all of the recent expansion announcements by local industry, you may want to consider a career choice in process technology or in one of the skilled craft areas such as pipefitting, welding or drafting.
Whatever it is, choose the path that’s right for you. Brazosport College is the college of choice for our community and I hope to see you on campus soon.
