With campuses in Prestonsburg, Pikeville, Paintsville and Hager Hill, BSCTC offers more than 25 academic and technical programs with an emphasis on innovation in learning and student access, transfer and success. 

Celebrating 75 years of educational excellence, BSCTC features multiple career pathways for students. Our Go2Work program allows for accelerated training that leads to rewarding, high-demand and high-wage careers in two years or less. For those seeking to continue their education at a four-year school, our Go2Transfer program allows you to get your basics close to home and transfer with ease – for a fraction of the cost of other colleges. Choose the academic program that best fits your needs.

Our caring faculty and staff take a personal approach to your education. By offering small class sizes in modern, state-of-the-art facilities, your success is our top priority. We also realize students need convenience, and that’s why we have day, evening and weekend classes on all four of our campuses, in addition to a wide variety of online classes for those students seeking the ultimate flexibility. 

Whether you are beginning your journey in post-secondary education, returning to school or seeking to complete one of our many certificate and short-term training programs, BSCTC has a place for you.
