Tuition and Acceptance Rate
- The BC3 main campus is located 1½ miles south of the city of Butler, on 323 acres of the former Oak Hills Golf Course. The beautiful campus in a country setting, surrounded by large oak trees and rolling hills, provides a comfortable and safe learning environment. Approximately 4,000 credit students attend BC3 annually and are enrolled in over 60 degree programs in the areas of business, nursing and allied health, arts and education, technology and transfer. One-third of the students earn a two-year Associates Degree and then transfer to a four-year college or university. Many students attend both day and evening classes, on a full or part-time basis. BC3 offers over 75 distance learning courses via the Internet or by videotape. In addition to offering the traditional career and transfer programs, BC3 has been recognized for several unique credit programs including computer forensics, metrology, nanofabrication, and massage therapy. Butler County Community College also offers classes at various off-campus centers throughout Western Pennsylvania at Cranberry Center, Lawrence County Center and Center at the LindenPointe. Butler County Community College is accredited by the Middle States Commission On Higher Education.
