This is Bakersfield College

Bakersfield College, a place where students can get their degree or certificate following the most efficient path to completion by clearly seeing various educational pathways mapped with the end in mind.

A place where students are continuously guided through their educational journeys through BC’s high-tech, high-touch system.

A place with a seamless 9-16 pathway that saves students and taxpayers time and money.

This website, organized by the four pillars of guided pathways, tells the story of how BC used the Guided Pathways Framework to catalyze a whole college redesign and to become a college completely focused on student outcomes.
