    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. Note that in addition to the 35 completers, the 52 who transferred out to 4-year institutions, and the 50 who transferred out to 2-year institutions, another 85 were still enrolled at BCCC pursuing their programs. Altogether, 59 percent of the cohort had either graduated or transferred to either a 4-year or another 2-year institution or were still enrolled at BCCC within 3 years of commencing a degree program or 3 semesters of commencing a certificate.
