Summer Courses at Bristol

Summer 2018 Main Page Image‌New this year! You may be eligible for financial aid this summer! 

Summer registration is now open. Classes begin as early as June 4, with 6-week, 11-week and 13-week options available in the classroom or online.

Financial Aid

If you are eligible for the Federal Pell Grant, you can now receive Summer Pell funds even if you were full time for both the Fall and Spring semesters. The Financial Aid Office has awarded all Pell Grant eligible students for the Summer and students can view these funds in their accessBCC account under Financial Aid > My Award Information > Award By Aid Year > Award Overview.

All awards are at full-time status and can be adjusted to the enrollment level after you register.  Before you register, you can call or email the Financial Aid Office to inquire about how the award amount may change if you enroll in fewer classes. Loans will be offered if the Pell Grant is not enough to cover tuition, fees, and books after you register. 

Bristol Students

If you are a current Bristol student, you may register for summer classes via accessBCC.

Other Students

If you want to register for a course at Bristol, but are not interested in earning a degree or certificate from the college, you can register for classes without having to apply to the college. This is often the case for students who intend to transfer credits to another institution.

Prerequisites: If you are registering for a course that requires a prerequisite, please do not register online as additional documentation (e.g. high school or college transcripts) may be required. Include this documentation along with the paper registration form to confirm that you are eligible to enroll in the course. See below for further instruction.

Transferring credits: Before you register, please check first that these credits are transferable to your school.
