BC SouthWest Location

For many years, Bakersfield College has held classes in the southwest area at various locations including Stockdale High School and Bakersfield Christian High School to better serve the needs of the southwest and northwest Bakersfield Community.

In the Spring of 2015, the first courses were held at the Fresno Pacific building and we are happy to expand this location as an option for our students.

Classrooms are located on the second floor of the Fresno Pacific building. Class sizes range from 25-40 students. To contact an on-duty public safety officer for escorts, please call or text (661) 747-6076.

The BC SouthWest location is an example of our commitment to bringing BC closer to home!
