Introduction

Butler Community College (BCC) was established in 1927 as the El Dorado Junior College in Butler County, Kansas. It was originally run out of a high school within the town of El Dorado, but the campus has since moved to a dedicated location with residence halls and more than 250 residential students.

Today, the school is an extensive community college network that offers associate’s degree, two-year programs, certificate programs, and non-credit options to students throughout the Butler County Area. It enrolls over 8,000 students and employs more than 1,200 workers.

There are six campus locations, each offering slightly different options and opportunities for its students, including different social and club activities. The Andover site offers the largest selection of classes and enrolls the greatest number of students. There is also a Business Performance Group that offers employee training to local businesses. Through the various class opportunities and education programs, students of all types will be able to find a program that matches their academic and career goals. There are also has 21 learning centers throughout the area, including some at local high schools.

Academics

BCC offers associate’s degrees, vocational training, certification programs, and non-credit classes for students of all ages and backgrounds. The course list includes a vast range of dozens of topics, including everything from Business Administration to Interactive 3D Technology. Students will enjoy small class sizes and individualized support from professors and guidance counselors.

Students are always welcome to visit an academic advisor for advice, guidance, or answers to questions about their course curriculum. Speaking with an advisor can often help you solidify your career goals or restructure your academic plan to be more in line with your interests. The Steve Pershall and Distinguished Alumni Community Success Centers will go even further in helping you plan the steps you will take leading up to graduation and after completion of your program. Students also have access to free tutoring through the Academic Achievement Center and confidential personal counseling from the Counseling and Advising Office.

At the library, students can study in various working lounges or use public computers. They can also seek research assistance or library help from one of the trained staff members.

Admissions

Butler offers open admissions, meaning that any student who meets the minimum requirements for entry will be admitted into an academic program. Applicants will still need to fill out a free application for admission, submit an official high school transcript or GED score report, and submit any SAT or ACT scores. Students will also need to take an ASSET placement test in order to be properly sorted into English and math courses.

Once the student has submitted all application materials, the next step is to apply for financial aid, scholarships, meet with an academic adivisor, and finally register for classes and pay any tuition fees that are due.

Financial Aid

Students seeking financial aid should begin by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is available online at fafsa.gov. This application determines a student’s eligibility for different types of government funding, including grants, loans, and work-study programs. The FAFSA is frequently a required form for many third-party loan and scholarship applications.

Students may also be eligible for a number of scholarships and grants from third-party sponsors, the state, or from Butler itself. These are usually awarded on the basis of academic performance, extracurricular activity, department or interests, and other selective factors. Applications may take the form of special forms, essays, recommendation letters, and more.

Scholarships

There are a number of scholarships offered to students who display certain aptitudes or characteristics. Activity and athletic scholarships are awarded to students who are skilled in particular areas of sport or extracurricular activities like journalism, theatre, and music. Academic scholarships are reserved for students who demonstrate exceptional academic potential and accomplishment. The Access Scholarship is for adult students who are considering a continuing education program. Finally, vocational scholarships are awarded to students who plan to enter particular professional fields or industries. Many of these scholarship competitions require a special form, which can be found online through the Financial Aid page, as well as a complete FAFSA form.
