Advising and Registration

Meeting with an Advisor

Students are paired with advisors based on academic program and the advisor's specialty. In some instances, students are assigned to the Advising Center where they meet with an available academic advisor. Each semester, students receive a letter regarding the forthcoming scheduling assistance and registration period (Therefore, it is important for a student to maintain up-to-date address information with the Records Office).

When and How to Register for Classes

If you are a returning student, you can register early during the registration period in November and April. After that registration time period, you can receive advising and course registration for the upcoming semester on a walk-in basis in the Advising Center.

New students, who have not attended Bristol before will register for courses at New Student Orientation, check for dates on the Orientation webpage.

PIN Number: Students will receive their registration PIN number once they meet with their assigned advisor.

Once you receive your registration PIN and have met with your advisor you are able to register. You can register through your accessBCC accountonline or on paper with the registration form, which is processed through any Enrollment Center.
