Registering for Classes: Guest 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 for admission. This is often the case for students who attend another college or university and intend to transfer their Bristol credits back to their home institution.

Financial Aid

Bristol students: if you are eligible for Federal Financial Aid, you may be able to receive Summer funds. Students can view their financial aid in accessBCC under Financial Aid > My Award Information > Award By Aid Year > Award Overview.

All awards are at full-time status and will be adjusted to registered credits once registration is complete. Before you register, you can call or email the Financial Aid Office to inquire about how the award amount may change if you register for less than full-time status.  

Please note, guest students are not eligible for financial aid. 


You will receive an electronic tuition and fees bill, which will be sent to your Bristol email address and can also be viewed on accessBCC. This bill informs you when your account must be paid. If it is not paid by the date listed on the bill, you will be dropped for non-payment. For Summer 2022 courses, payment will be due May 5, 2022.

If you have registered and not yet received a bill, check your SPAM filter or call the Student Accounts office at 774.357.2160. Learn more about paying your bill.
