Please do not visit our campus. We are committed to staying connected to our students, college personnel, and community so we encourage you to phone and email us so that we can assist you with any questions, provide technical support or guide you to resources. Please be flexible and patient as we are operating with limited staff.

Bladen Community College operational hours have changed and the campus will be on an alternate schedule of 9am until 5pm Monday thru Thursday and 9am until 3pm on Fridays.
