After You're Admitted



Following your acceptance to the college, your first step toward completing the registration process is to take a placement test. Placement tests help us check the academic skill levels of entering students. This requirement is waived is you submit transcripts showing have have earned an Associate or Bachelor Degree from an accredited institution. New students can either:

  • Take the Accuplacer exam
    • The Accuplacer test is FREE and no appointment is needed to do the exam. Students can retest one time for $10.
    • Please bring a valid student ID.
  • Or submit your official copy of your ACT or SAT scores 

Advising and Registration (AR) Session

Once you have either submitted your ACT or SAT scores, or taken the placement exam, the next step is to attend an Advising and Registration Session. We will send you a link to your personal and BTC email allowing you to sign up for an AR Session. This AR session will include meeting your advisor, planning and creating an academic plan and registering for classes. Additional information regarding financial aid, payment plans, books, tools and supplies will be discussed.


Pay Tuition and Fees

Paying your tuition and additional fees can happen at any time during the registration process, however many new students pay after they have registered for classes. If you need financial assistance, our Paying for College page can provide you more information about financial aid, payment plans, scholarships and other types of awards. Please note, you will not be able to attend class if you have not paid your tuition or set up a payment plan. 


Welcome Week

Once you have completed your placement exam, attended an Advising and Registration Session and paid your tuition, the final step before starting classes is to attend Welcome Week.
