Baton Rouge Community College students return August 17


BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – This year, students at Baton Rouge Community College have a variety of options when it comes to attending school during a pandemic.

BRCC will start the 2020-2021 school year with online, in-person, and hybrid instruction.

“Remaining completely online just isn’t an option when you are educating the state’s next healthcare professionals, welders, and more,” said BRCC Chancellor Dr. Willie E. Smith. “Some classes must be taught in a hands-on format, while others like general education courses can properly function as online offerings.”

Incentives are also available for incoming and returning students. Students enrolled in the Hands-On Technical Program and those considered full-time will be awarded $600. Participants of the Work Ready U Program enrolled in six credit hours will be awarded $500.

Additionally, fees for online registration and non-Louisiana residents have been waived. More details about tuition and fees can be found here.
