Any applicant that is applying for, or currently holds, an F-1, M-1, or J-1 visa is considered to be an international applicant. Students in this category must follow the guidelines detailed below.
If an applicant is currently holding a visa type other than F-1, M-1, or J-1 and does not plan to change their visa type, they should follow the standard admission guidelines, however, they may not apply for Spring II or Fall II semesters. Applicants should include a photocopy of their Permanent Resident card or visa.
Applicants that do not currently hold a valid visa must apply using the deadlines below.
Important Note: Effective Fall 2014, The Office of Admissions at BCTC will only admit students on M, F, and J visas for fall and spring semesters. No form I-20 will be issued to students for the summer terms. Transient students or visiting students from a United States institution that hold such visas will be admissible for the summer terms, for up to six credit hours. These students will be required to provide a letter of good standing from their home institution.
