Transcript Requests

Brunswick Community College is excited to announce we have now authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide transcript ordering via the web. Students can request transcripts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Official transcripts will be processed electronically through the National Student Clearinghouse’s E-TRANSCRIPT service.

A $2.00 transcript fee is charged for each official transcript sent electronically, mailed, or in person. There is a $2.25 online processing fee for all transcript requests ordered through the National Student Clearinghouse. Electronic PDF’s also have an additional shipping and handling fee of $1.00 which is charged by National Student Clearinghouse.

Transcripts by Mail or In Person

Official Electronic transcripts will provide the fastest delivery method, however official transcript requests can be made in Student Services – Office of the Registrar, P.O. Box 30, Supply, NC 28462-0030 for a fee of $2.00 per transcript (available one business day after receipt of the request and payment) and/or an additional $5 on-demand processing fee per order for same-day service (on-demand processing is not available during registration days.)

Students must pay by cash, check, Discover, Master Card, or Visa in the Business Office or by calling 910-755-7318. Students can also pay via WebAdvisor.

There is no charge for unofficial transcripts but we still require the signed Transcript Request form.

 

Document Printing

Former students who graduated prior to the Fall 2012 semester interested in having their certificate, degree, or diploma printed should complete a Credential Request for each document they are requesting, along with payment. The cost of each document is $15.00, payable by check to Brunswick Community College, or in-person by cash, check, money order, MasterCard, or Visa.

The cost of credential printing for current students is factored into your student fees. You should not complete a request form.

For GED/Adult High School Diploma Requests, please contact Foundational Studies at 910.755.7386

Drop/Add & Withdraw

Adding Courses

Students are permitted to add a class at any time prior to the start of the term, provided that registration is open and as long as there are no holds on your account. Students receiving financial aid must have coursework pre-approved.

Dropping Courses

Students must obtain the signature of their advisor to drop a class. Financial Aid students must also obtain the signature of each instructor and a Financial Aid representative prior to submitting a drop form. All drops should be completed by the Office of the Registrar and can only be completed prior to the census date (10% point) of the course. Drops taking place prior to the start of classes merit a full refund; however, those processed on the first day of classes until the census date will only receive a 75% refund.

Withdrawing from Courses

Students may withdraw from a course after the census date and until the 75% point of the course. The last dates to withdraw from courses are published in the catalog for full-semester, 1st 8-weeks, and 2nd 8-weeks courses. Students should go to the Academic Support Office (A125) to initiate a withdraw. Withdraw forms must be signed by the student, advisor, a Financial Aid representative (if you are a financial aid or VA aid recipient), and instructor prior to submission to the Office of the Registrar. Official withdraws will be issued the grade of “W”, which will appear on your transcript but not factor into your GPA calculation.

Withdraws After the Withdraw Deadline

Students may not withdraw after the withdraw deadlines unless extreme circumstances (medical leave, called to active duty military status, etc.) merit an administrative withdraw authorized by the Associate Vice President for Student Services and Enrollment Management, along with supporting documentation to this effect.

Degree or Enrollment Verifications

Brunswick Community College has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide enrollment and degree verifications. Verifications will not be performed in-house. The National Student Clearinghouse can be contacted at:

  • Web – www.degreeverify.org
  • Mail – National Student Clearinghouse | 2300 Dulles Station Boulevard, Suite 300 | Herndon, VA 20171

Registration

Current BCC Curriculum Students

All students must meet with their advisor prior to registration. Current students may pre-register during designated times.

New Curriculum Students

New students need to apply for admission, schedule the necessary placement test(s), and meet with an advisor to register. Typically, new students register during OAR (Orientation, Advising & Registration), provided they have taken all other steps in the enrollment process.

Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) Students

BLET students will have a separate registration day designated by the program director. Students must still complete all admissions applications, placement testing, etc. prior to this registration day. Additional information can be obtained by contacting Chantal Taunton at 910.7558088.

Grading

Grades are available via Self Service at the end of the each term. Students should view their grades, and if they have any questions, contact the instructor directly.

Academic Recognition

Outstanding academic achievement by students is recognized each semester by publication of the President’s List, Dean’s List, and Honor Roll in area newspapers for the Fall and Spring semesters. Copies are also posted outside of Student Services.

  • President’s List

The President’s List includes students who are enrolled for a minimum of 12 credit hours (academic support courses and courses offered through Institutional Service Agreements with sister colleges which yield credit from the other institution are excluded) and have achieved a semester grade point average of 4.0. Students eligible for the President’s List must be in an associate degree, diploma, or certificate program.

  • Dean’s List

The Dean’s List includes students who are enrolled for a minimum of 12 credit hours (academic support courses and courses offered through Institutional Service Agreements with sister colleges which yield credit from the other institution are excluded) and have achieved a semester grade point average of at least 3.5 out of a possible 4.0 (with no grade lower than “C”). Students eligible for the Dean’s List must be in an associate degree, diploma, or certificate program.

  • Honor Roll

The Honor Roll includes students who are enrolled in 6 to 11 credit hours (academic support courses and courses offered through Institutional Service Agreements with sister colleges which yield credit from the other institution are excluded) and have achieved a semester grade point average of at least 3.5 out of a possible 4.0 (with no grade lower than “C”). Students eligible for the Honor Roll must be in an associate degree, diploma, or certificate program.

Grades of Incomplete

In certain circumstances, your instructor may issue you the grade of “I” for Incomplete. All work necessary to complete your course requirements must be completed by the end of the next semester (i.e. an “I” in a fall course must be remedied by the conclusion of the spring semester).

The grade of “I” can be replaced by an actual grade only by completing all work assigned by the instructor of the course. It is the responsibility of the student to make the necessary arrangements with the instructor to accomplish the required additional work needed to remove the “I” grade.

If the student does not satisfactorily complete the required work during the semester subsequent to receiving the “I” grade, it will automatically become an “F” and is computed in this way in the student’s grade point average.

Grade Changes

Students cannot initiate a grade change with the Office of the Registrar. If you feel you have a situation which merits a grade change, you must contact the instructor for that course first in accordance with the “Grade Appeal Procedure” outlined in the catalog. Also in accordance with this procedure, a student forfeits all right to challenge a grade in a course after the conclusion of the semester following the receipt of that course (i.e. a student may only challenge the grade in a spring course until the conclusion of the summer semester).
