About BSC

Welcome to Bismarck State College and to your opportunity to go beyond with us. I invite you to explore our website to learn about our mission and vision, our academic programs and our many events and activities.

At BSC, we are rallied around our brand, beyond. It’s a word that holds the promise of individual pursuits. It contains all the potential of the people who work here; it represents the success of our students and the excellence of our events and outreach. Beyond is a place and it is potential and it is an expectation. At BSC we’ll go above and beyond to help you achieve it.
As a student, your beyond may mean attending for a semester and then transferring on to a four year college or university; perhaps you are focused on graduating with a technical degree and moving into a promising career in healthcare, energy or automotive repair; maybe you are looking for a couple of classes that will enhance your skills. Whatever your path, the people of BSC are here to help you get started, stay on track and meet your educational goals.

BSC has provided a high quality, affordable college education to the region for more than 75 years. Whether you are a prospective or continuing student, or a business looking for training, we are here to help you succeed.
I invite you to visit our beautiful campus overlooking the Missouri River. You will find a place bursting with energy – from dynamic faculty to new buildings to big ideas. In addition, our top quality online classes provide you with all the benefits of BSC as well as scheduling flexibility.

I encourage you to learn more about BSC. I’m available to talk (call 701-224-5431) or better yet, visit us and discover how BSC can help you learn, grow, succeed and go beyond.
