New Transfer: a new transfer student is a student who has attended an accredited College/University and is transferring those earned credits.
Once you have been fully admitted and received your admissions packet, you may schedule your advising and testing (if needed) appointments online! Please refer to the link provided in your admissions packet to schedule.
As a New Transfer student, you must have an advising appointment with an academic advisor before enrolling into classes. Make sure your official transcript has been sent to BCTC and also bring a copy of it with you to your advising appointment, (it’s possible you may need to COMPASS test, please see below to help determine if you need testing).
Note: If you need to COMPASS test please make sure you schedule your testing before your advising and if you have recently taken the ACT or COMPASS please bring an official copy of those scores with you to your advising appointment.
To have coursework re-evaluated as a general education course or to establish a direct equivalency with a BCTC course please visit our Transfer Information page.
Before your appointments please visit the admissions guidelines page to ensure you have completed all necessary steps!
Please refer to our checklist for newly admitted students.
*Please Note: If your ACT/SAT/COMPASS scores are more than 3 years old and/or you have not completed college level or transitional courses, especially in Writing and Math, you will be required to take the COMPASS Placement exam in order to advise you appropriately. The COMPASS test must be completed prior to your advising session.
