First Year Orientation

Announcements

COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the ongoing pandemic, BCTC is hosting First Year Orientations online for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 students.

First Year Orientation is your opportunity to learn about financial aid, degrees and programs, and the many resources available to help you be successful. We believe orientation is important to helping you get off to a great start, therefore we require orientation to be completed by all new freshmen.

  • This option is for students beginning classes in January, February, or March 2021.
  • First Year Orientation Online: You can complete the FYO Online, which is a module that you complete at your own pace by reading and watching videos and takes approximately 30 – 40 minutes. The Online Orientation is not live, so you can complete it at any time.
  • Testing & Scheduling Classes: If you have not done so, please complete the BCTC Pre-Advising form and you will be contacted about placement testing and scheduling your classes.  
  • This option is for students beginning classes beginning in May 2021 or later.
  • Virtual First Year Orientations: Live First Year Orientations will be broadcast over Zoom beginning in March and will be offered throughout Spring and Summer 2021. In these virtual orientations BCTC faculty and staff will present on college services, financial aid, billing, and more. You will be able to ask questions and meet (virtually) some of our faculty and staff. 
  • Testing & Scheduling Classes: If you have not done so, please complete the BCTC Pre-Advising form and you will be contacted about placement testing and scheduling your classes.  
  • If you have already completed the online orientation but need to access it again, then you can access it by going here: First Year Orientation Online
  • If you have questions that we can answer, don’t hesitate to contact the Student Success Hub.

Please contact the Student Student Success Hub with any questions or concerns at 859.246.6702 or e-mail us at bctc-hub@kctcs.edu.  We look forward to working with and supporting you at BCTC!
