Advising Scheduling


If you are a student currently enrolled at BCC, you can register using your accessBCC account.

If you are a new student, your first step is to take the Accuplacer Placement Test. Click here to get started on placement testing. After completing the test, you’ll register to attend a New Student Orientation session where advisors will help interpret your placement scores.

When and How to Register for Classes

If you are a returning student, you can register early during Priority Registration in November and April. After the priority registration time period, you can receive advising and course registration for the upcoming semester on a walk-in basis in the Advising Center.

Although it's a busy time for you, it is important to register on time to gain access to the best selection of courses and class meeting times. Your advisor is ready to help you plan your academic program and select the courses you'll need to complete your major program requirements.

You may register for classes in one of several ways:
