BCTC Parents and Families Orientation

Dear Parents,

We are excited that your college student has chosen Bluegrass Community and Technical College as the educational institution of their choice. BCTC offers students the opportunity to be part of a friendly and safe campus environment, and to actively engage with our experienced faculty and staff. BCTC provides students with an affordable college education where they can earn credits that will readily transfer to four-year universities, or technical job skills that will position them to secure employment.

At our campuses, students will find a comprehensive array of student services such as Advising, Financial Aid, Admissions, and Tutoring. In addition to these quality services, BCTC will offer your college student a number of opportunities to join various clubs, student organizations, and intramural sports.

We also know how important it is for parents, the college, and the student to work together. As your student is registering for orientation, please note we will have separate parent orientations during the summer sessions. Please refer to this website for information on orientation and the dates available: http://bluegrass.kctcs.edu/admissions/fye_orientation.aspx

If you are interested in attending one of those sessions, please have your student register for one of those dates for you both to attend. By holding separate orientations, our staff can address the unique priorities and questions that students and parents typically have. In addition, the First Year Experience Orientation is a step in your student s adjustment to college life dealing with topics he/she will encounter in college. If you have any questions, please contact the First Year Center at 859-246-6702 or at BL_FYC@kctcs.edu.

Again, we are excited that your family member is considering attending BCTC!

The First Year Center Orientation Team
