Not every student who enters full-time can continue studying full-time over the subsequent semesters because of household and employment obligations. Many students first need 0-credit developmental courses in order to succeed at the college level.

3. Employment Rates

Records for graduates of the selected programs are compared with payroll records to determine how many are employed in any field, whether full-time or part-time. For FY 2015, the PQI reported that 73% of BCCC's FY 2014 graduates from the programs shown were employed six months after graduation. The statewide average was 72%.
