Visiting College Students

Visiting College Students

The steps below are for students currently enrolled in another institution who plan to enroll concurrently at BCTC to take one or two classes.

the first step to become a student

Apply for admission to the college

Your first step is to complete an admissions application. You can access the application by visiting the Online Admissions Application portal. Should you require accommodations for completing the application, please contact Disability Support Services at 859-246-6728 or toll free at 866-774-4872, extension 6728.

Step 2

Setup your student account

Once you submit your admissions application, visit User Account Center to create your user profile, obtain your student ID and username, and to set your password. This account will give you access to your student self-service (registration, payments, financial aid, grades, etc.), e-mail, and any online courses you enroll in. Please note that you will not have access to your student email account until after you have registered for classes.

Step 3

Submit official letter of good standing

You will need to contact the Registrar s Office at your home institution to request a letter of good standing for admission to the BCTC. You are not admissible until this document is received. Once all documentation is received, it will take approximately two weeks to process your application. Once your application is processed, you will receive correspondence via postal mail. This letter provides instructions on accessing an online portal that will guide you through completing your enrollment, which includes activating your PeopleSoft student account to register for classes.

Faxed, photocopies, and scanned images of documents will not be accepted. Original documents must be provided to the Office of Admissions.

If you will be hand-delivering documents after hours, you may submit using the drop box located on the door to the Admissions Office located in room 119 of the Oswald building at the Cooper campus. The drop box is secure and checked daily for submissions.


Register for classes

Visiting and Non-degree college students are not required to meet with an academic advisor. Your online portal, available as a link in your mailed acceptance letter, will provide instructions for creating your student account. You will login to your student account to register for classes. For question regarding registering, you will need to contact the Registrar's Office at (855) 246-2477 or via email at


Pay tuition

Once you are registered for classes, you will be responsible for paying your tuition and making sure that any accepted financial aid is posted to your account (if under a consortium agreement with your home institution). You will pay your tuition through your student account. For instructions on activating your account, please review information located in step two above.
