Great news! BCC is offering free college courses to high school juniors and seniors this spring.
- Students can take up to 15 credits this spring, student schedules permitting, tuition and fees will be waived.
To enroll, students can use the Early College registration form
Juniors and seniors can place into college-level classes with a high school GPA of 2.7 or higher, or take the Accuplacer placement exam (Students looking to take Pre-Calculus, Calculus, or higher will be required to take the Math Accuplacer.)
Fifteen (15) credits is a full course load. The College does not encourage all students to take 15 credits. Students must take their high school schedule, classes, sports, extra-curricular activities into account.
A low-Grade Point Average (GPA) and Withdraws can affect a student’s future financial aid eligibility. See the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy for more details.
Students taking 9 credits or more will automatically charged for health insurance. If students hae health insurance they will want to waive the insurance fee at Gallagher Student Health & Special Risk
Registering early for college classes is extremely helpful for students to be able to get books and login support before classes start! (2 weeks before classes start is ideal.)
Spring classes start on the Jan. 24, 2022, and the Add/Drop period runs from Jan. 24 - Jan. 31.
