Undergraduate options and dual enrollment
In addition to degree-track students, dual enrollment allows high school students to take BBC classes and earn both college and high school credit. It is an economical alternative for many parents and students, giving a head start toward a degree.

Special pricing of $299 for the first three-credit class now applies. Tuition and fees for online dual-enrolled high school students is $425 per three-credit-hour course. That's also a fraction of the regular price. This applies when the credits earned at BBC are a part of fulfilling graduation requirements for a high school diploma. Students must also meet the eligibility requirements for the program.
