General Information About Big Bend Community College
Welcome! It’s great you are taking time for a virtual visit to Big Bend Community College. Spend time with us; look around; ask questions. From this beautiful campus we serve more than 5,400 students from the heart of the central Columbia Basin of Washington state. Our catalog will demonstrate a mix of traditional programs, services, and some fairly unique efforts as well. The boundaries of our 4,600-square-mile district surround rivers, lakes, mountains, and rich, productive agricultural land. The success of our students is our standard of accountability. Since 1962 our six-fold mission of college transfer, vocational and developmental education, community service/continuing education, business and industry partnerships, and student support services has provided the environment for their success. Students come to Big Bend as a first choice, a second chance, and a continuing opportunity for life-long learning. Whatever their goal, the BBCC staff is here to help.
