That depends. The CALL degree programs are designed for working adults, who previously attended, but did not finish college. These courses are taught online at an accelerated pace and cover the same amount of material in four (4) weeks that is taught in a regular semester. You must not only qualify to meet the degree requirements, you must also have the desire and interest in participating in online learning.
"The CALL program is an exciting fast paced journey to a successful future. It definitely requires dedication and self discipline, but the end reward is worth the work!"
April - Fast-Track Business Administration Major
"Honestly, I did not know what to expect in the beginning and questioned if I would be able to even complete the course. Although the work load in a four week class is intense, it is doable."
Christy - Fast-Track Computer Information Systems Major
All CALL courses are online, so you have to be comfortable learning on your own, at a fast pace. You also have to be comfortable sitting at your computer! Visit this site - www.yourcallla.org/sort-tool- and take the Student Online Readiness Tool self-assessment.

We understand that figuring out how to pay for your degree is often the most challenging aspect of the application process. Financial aid comes in the form of grants or loans. Many businesses and industries provide tuition reimbursement programs - check with your Human Resources Department about these opportunities. Scholarships are also available through the BPCC Foundation at www.bpcc.edu/foundation. You can learn more about ways to pay for a degree at http://www.bpcc.edu/callstudents/financialaid.html.
The first step in applying for financial aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov.The key to the financial aid process is to apply early! Learn more by visiting BPCC's financial aid office at http://www.bpcc.edu/financialaid. The FAFSA and all other BPCC application documents must be completed to determine eligibility.
BPCC has a designated financial aid representative for the CALL program, Ms. Quintina Miles (firstname.lastname@example.org).
As stated above, it is important you apply for financial aid as early as possible. Begin the process now by completing the FASFA online. Visit www.bpcc.edu/callstudents for a link to the financial aid page and user-friendly instructions.
There is a 2 part answer to your question. Yes, BPCC accepts credits from other regionally accredited colleges and universities. Some credits may be transferable and count towards your degree based on a free transcript evaluation that is conducted by the Registrar-Admissions Office. BPCC does not have a rule prohibiting the acceptance of credit based on age; yet, the acceptance of credit is made on a course by course and department by department basis.
