Student Responsibility

If your plans have changed, and you're not going to attend class, you'll need to officially withdraw. Check the academic calendar of the delivery college (in KCTCS) to see the official withdraw schedule.

Students who have not fully paid financial obligations to BCTC or to any division or organization of BCTC will not be permitted to register for future credit or non-credit offerings, receive transcripts, transfer credits to another institution, or graduate.

BCTC will pursue collection of all outstanding accounts pursuant to its business procedures.

Accounts that remain delinquent may be referred to outside agencies for collection and are subject to additional fees and costs.

BCTC makes every effort to include relevant, timely, and accurate information in its publications. However, BCTC reserves the right to make changes in its calendar, admissions policies, expenses, programs, curricula, course descriptions, or any other matters addressed or not addressed in this publication. Prospective students and enrolled students should check with the college's Offices of Admissions, Registrar, and/or Bursar's Office to learn of any such changes.

All delinquencies must be paid by money order, cashier's check, or cash in the Bursar's Office.
