BRCC announces institutional aid initiatives and special changes to summer and fall scheduling

Baton Rouge Community College is announcing special changes to our upcoming summer session and fall 2020 semester, including institutional aid initiatives, self-directed placement testing, and hybrid courses, among other things.

Summer 2020 Semester
Students who enroll and complete six (6) credit hours during our 2nd 4-week summer session (June 29 – July 31) could earn a $500 institutional award toward tuition. The last day to add classes for this session is Tuesday, June 30.

Fall 2020 Semester
The Fall 2020 semester also offers the following institutional aid initiatives:

During the Fall 2020 semester, BRCC is also introducing special changes that will allow us to continue offering the same great educational and support opportunities for our students. We will offer general education courses through online synchronous and asynchronous classes while Technical Education and Nursing and Allied Health classes will be offered through a hybrid design, practicing social distancing. We will continue to offer support for students with technology needs, and student services will remain online through the Virtual Student Center.

There will be changes to our admissions testing as new students who were previously required to take the Accuplacer exam will now be given a self-directed placement option upon enrolling to Baton Rouge Community College. Details will be shared with these students when they apply for admission.
