BCCC increases summer class offerings, 
sets Summer Term registration dates

Beaufort County Community College has increased the number of course offerings available for the 2011 Summer Term – including online courses - and has announced the registration schedule for this term.

BCCC will offer some 82 seated classes (in a classroom on the BCCC campus or at a clinical site), in topics ranging from Art Appreciation to Spanish, and will offer 46 online and or hybrid classes, in topics ranging from Business Communication to Security Concepts during the 2011 Summer Term. Hybrid classes are conducted both in the classroom and online.

“Due to the economy, many students want to accelerate their education by taking classes year-round so they can enter the work force sooner, said BCCC Dean of Instruction Wesley Beddard. “To respond to this need, BCCC has increased the number of courses it will offer during the 2011 Summer Term.”

All of the college transfer classes offered during the Summer Term classes are what BCCC refers to as “self-supporting classes.” This means that there is no state funding attached to them. Hence, these courses will have a higher tuition rate of $113 per credit hour. However, these classes carry the same credits as the Fall and Spring Semesters and may be applied toward graduation and or transferred to other institutions.

All of the technical courses have the same tuition rate in the summer as in the fall and spring. The tuition for in-state students in these classes is $56.50 per credit hour.

“Because the college is not reimbursed for college transfer classes taught during the summer, we have traditionally offered only a few summer term classes,” he said. “By offering these classes on a self-supporting basis we are able to provide more course options for BCCC students, those students who attend other colleges or universities and are home for the summer and high school students who want to get a head start on their college education.”

The Summer Term 2011 registration schedule is as follows:

  • Registration is 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning Monday, April 11 for returning students. Registration for returning and new students is 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning Tuesday, April 12.
  • Late registration is 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, May 16.
  • The first day of class is Wednesday, May 17. Summer term ends Thursday, July 14.

Registration allows the students and the advisors to evaluate progress and plan courses to be taken during the following semester.

New students must apply for admission before registering for classes. Those with questions about the admissions process should contact the Admissions Office in Building 9 on the BCCC campus, visit the BCCC website at www.beaufortccc.edu or call 252-940-6237. It is also recommended that new students bring copies of placement test scores and/or college transcripts to registration.

Returning students are asked to advise the Registrar’s Office in Building 9 of any changes – such as name, address, or program of study – since completing their initial admissions application.

Tuition will be billed and mailed to students Friday, April 15. Tuition must be paid by 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, May 4. Students who do not pay by this date will automatically have their classes canceled. The Cashier’s Office accepts cash, check, Visa, and Master Card.
