An affordable comprehensive community college with campuses in Pocahontas and Paragould serving students in and around northeast Arkansas, and, with Distance Education, throughout the world.

Student Life

Author, Sarah Fine, sent a signed copy of her book, Scan, along with bookmarks and bracelets for students in Adult Education.  Instructor, Cindy Robinett, had contacted the author telling her how much her students had enjoyed Fine's books.


A group of 47 traveled to Washington, D. C. last month on a trip sponsored by BRTC. “I am a nontraditional student, and I would never have an opportunity like this,” said Jerri Blue.  “With the help of the college, I was able to go and learn so much.  I am very thankful.”

Our Focus

BRTC is the recipient of a C23 Sherpa airplane.  This aircraft was a donation from the US Military through their program to repurpose retired military aircraft.  It will be used by both the LETA and Aviation Maintenance programs.
