Registering for Classes

After you have applied and been accepted into your program, you may register for your program (credit) classes. If you would like to register for a community education or training (non-credit) class, check out the online class search.

If you are a continuing student, you will receive priority registration in order to stay on track for graduation. This means, during scheduled dates, you may register for classes before new students. It is important to take advantage of this opportunity, because once registration is opened to all students, course availability becomes limited. 

Current students: To determine what your priority program is, please refer to the Registration and Courses tab in MyBTC. 

New students to a program: Before you are able to register for classes, please sign-up for an Advising, Registration and Orientation Session using the link in your acceptance letter.

Important Registration Definitions

It is your responsibility to attend your courses on a regular basis. As a part of Blackhawk Technical College's commitment to student success, we do have a non-attendance policy. If you fail to attend any course sessions during the first 10% of a course’s actual hours of instruction, your instructor will report you as “non-attending” and you will be removed from the course and notified through your BTC student email. At that point, you will no longer be considered registered in that course, will not receive a grade for the course, and cannot start attending unless written approval from the instructor is received. If permitted, you will be required to re-register for the course. Removal from a course due to failure to attend provides an eighty percent refund to your student account and may impact your financial aid.

If you owe the College money for tuition that has accrued for the current semester, the College has the option to withdraw you from all registered credit classes. This drop process will occur immediately following the due date for the second payment of your payment plan and also two weeks prior to the start of the semester. It is your responsibility to review your schedule to determine if you have been withdrawn and need to re-register for courses. This will occur for all students regardless of how you registered or whether or not you were on a payment plan.

You can drop a class or all of your classes before the end of the drop/add period. Your BTC account will be credited, and after all fees have been paid, a refund check will be issued to you or we will apply the refund to the credit card used, if appropriate. Refer to the BTC catalog for further information.

You may withdraw from a class or all of your classes before the withdrawal deadline. If you are withdrawing (or dropping) from all of your courses, you will need to fill out an Add/Drop Form and meet with an advisor before you can be withdrawn. However, you are not eligible for a refund and you will receive a grade of "W" on your transcript. If you owe the college any money, you will still have to pay that balance. Refer to the BTC catalog for further information.
