Admission and Financial Aid

Start here, go anywhere!

Welcome! Whether you study at Berkshire Community College's (BCC) main campus in Pittsfield or online, you'll be glad you chose a College that offers small class sizes with faculty who are dedicated to preparing you for your future.

The first step in the enrollment process is to complete the application. After applying, applicants will be sent an acknowledgement to the email address provided in the application. One week later, BCC will send a formal letter of acceptance.

Testing and Placement

Upon acceptance to the College, students will either take the Accuplacer or submit official high school transcripts for evaluation of their GPA to be placed into courses. Students who previously attended another college or university should submit their official transcripts to BCC to see if you are exempt from testing.
