Enrollment Steps

Submit the Application for Admission. It's free, and it only takes about 15 minutes to complete.

Start Your Application

You can order your high school transcript at parchment.com or your GED transcripts at request.ged.ky.gov. Don’t forget to send transcripts for all previously attended non-KCTCS colleges, for example, any dual credit classes you may have taken in high school.  Home school transcripts must be notarized and can be mailed to the below address.

In order to accommodate prospective students who cannot take a placement test, BCTC will use a cumulative high school GPA for placement for Summer 2020 through Summer 2021. High school GPA placement is based on the unweighted cumulative GPA recorded at the end of the most recent term completed. 

If you have not met the high school GPA requirement, you may need to submit additional test scores. 

Explore financial aid. Our generous scholarships, grants and loans make a great education even more affordable. Here's some ways to pay for college.

Once you have been admitted to the college, you will receive an acceptance email.  That email will provide you with a link to submit a pre-advising form and information on scheduling Freshman Orientation. 

  • Visit the User Account Center to setup your account.
  • Once your account is setup, login and view your class schedule, grades, financial aid, and tuition payment information.
