How To Apply

Admissions Process

Welcome to Admissions at Brunswick Community College.

The first step to becoming a college student is to be admitted to the College

Steps to getting started:

1. Explore Programs

If you are unsure of a program and would like to explore career options, visit BCC’s Career Coach webpage to complete your personalized assessment and research career options.  BCC’s Success Coaches are also available to help you assess your career options.

2. Complete a Residency Determination Request

All applicants (with the exception of Career and College Promise applicants) must complete a Residency Determination request to determine their tuition status (in-state or out-of-state) prior to completing and submitting an Admissions application. Documentation may be required during this process. View the Helpful Hints Guide for Residency Classification on our web site for a list of information that may be required to submit the Residency Determination Application. Please have these documents on hand prior to starting your Residency Determination Application. You can complete your Residency Determination Request online through RDS.

3. Complete an Online Admissions Application

  • Students are encouraged to apply at least three weeks prior to the start term in which they want to begin.
  • Students who are not seeking a degree, diploma, or certificate but wish to enroll in a credit bearing course may apply to the College as a “Visiting/Non-degree” student.

4. Requests Transcripts

Submission of official transcript(s) is required. Provide an official (sealed) copy of your high school transcript or furnish the Admissions Office with an official copy of your GED scores.  In addition, request an official College Transcript from all colleges you have previously attended. You are responsible for ensuring that the Admissions Office receives all of your transcripts. Students may be accepted under a provisional status and allowed to register for classes in cases where official transcripts will arrive after the semester begins.  Non-degree students are not required to submit high school transcripts, but are required to provide documentation that prerequisites have been met.

5. Schedule Placement Exam (if applicable)

If you graduated from high school within the past 10 years, a Placement Exam is not needed.  If you graduated high school more than 10 years ago, submit ACT or SAT scores that meet the College’s minimum requirement.  If you receive transfer credit for English or mathematic courses, placement testing may also not be required.

6. Begin the Financial Aid process and apply for Scholarships
