COCOA - Brevard Community College is now Eastern Florida State College.

The Cocoa school officially changed its name Monday. It's also going to start offering four-year degrees.

In August, the school will start bachelor's degree programs in general business administration and health care administration. Next year, eight more bachelor's degree programs will be offered. Officials say 10 more associate degrees will be added by next year, too.

College president Jim Richey tells Florida Today (http://on.flatoday.com/12gfizd ) that the additional programs focused on business, health care and information technologies will help students find jobs and help local businesses grow.

Trustee Steve Charpentier says Florida's other community colleges have seen enrollment rise significantly after offering four-year degrees.
