Workshop offered for students who want to start classes at BBCC
A workshop for students who plan to start classes at Big Bend Community College in January of 2014, will be held Sept. 10, in the BBCC library.
“Some students are not prepared or unaware of the process to get started,” said Rita Ramirez, BBCC Coordinator of Student Recruitment and Outreach. “This workshop will help potential students understand the process and prepare them to enroll winter quarter.”
BBCC’s enrollment is historically high in winter because so many people in the area work in agriculture during the fall.
The workshop is geared to providing students with information about admissions, financial aid, other funding opportunities, applications, placement testing, new student orientation, and a review of programs of study available at Big Bend.
Before attending the workshop, students should try completing a FAFSA application online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. BBCC’s school code for that application is 003770.
The workshop will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. in room 1802 of the library. For information, contact Ramirez at 793-2072.
