Student academic success is important to us at BEOC. In order to assist students to stay in school and complete their programs, various academic and learning resources are made available to all BEOC students. These include individual and group tutoring, and open labs for practice in skills development and completing assignments. Academic and learning resources are supported by the Office of Academic Affairs.
The ATTAIN lab is a part of a network of state-funded computer labs, open to students as well as the community. The lab offers access to career, academic and workforce development training modules which are customized training programs that can be administered by staff or completed by self study. BEOC students may access software applications that support their coursework in all programs and extend their learning beyond the classroom. The lab coordinators assist students with managing their learning needs. Users also have the option of creating SUNY email accounts.
Applicants for BEOC programs who do not meet academic requirements for their program of choice may register in the ATTAIN lab to improve their skills in order to re-test for admission to their program.
BEOC students and community residents can get certified in the Microsoft IT Academy -Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access courses, prepare for the High School Equivalency test, use English as a Second Language modules, or get work readiness certifications.
