When can I register for classes?

Check the enrollment calendar for registration dates for upcoming quarters. Registration access dates & times are set prior to the registration period for each quarter. New college students (no previous college attended) must register for and attend a BARK session before registering.

When do I need to pay tuition and fees?

Always be sure to check on tuition and payment timelines and deadlines to avoid being dropped for non-payment. If your tuition is being paid by financial aid, a 3rd party or other college program, always check to be sure that the payment is in place or that you have deferment on your account. If you are unable to pay before the deadline, sign up for the payment plan.

How do I get my SID?

You may retrieve your SID online now.

Students who apply will receive their SID via e-mail after the application has been processed. If the online tool to retrieve your SID fails to find the match, you will need to come in person with photo id.

What is my PIN?

Your personal id number (PIN) is initially set as your birth date when you applied for admissions, using the MMDDYY format. If you have not changed your PIN since you were enrolled at BC, try to use your birth date to log in with the MMDDYY format.
If the MMDDYY format does not work and if your month starts with a zero, try again by omitting that first zero (making the PIN a 5 digit number). You should change your PIN on a regular basis to further protect your personal information. Changing your PIN can easily be located from the My Online Services menu.

How do I confirm my registration time?

You may confirm your registration time online now.

You will be required to wait to register until your appointed time (or anytime after) to register for your classes. The time assigned to you is based on how early you submitted your admissions application.

New to college (no previous college attended) must sign up for and attend a BARK session before registering.

Registration deadlines still apply so it is important to make sure you register before all registration deadlines to guarantee that you will not incur any additional fees or late charges.

How do I get a registration access time?

Here are some reasons why you do not have an assigned registration time:

  • You were not enrolled at BC for 4 consecutive quarters or more (including summer quarter). You need to re-apply for admission to re-activate your account in order to receive access time for registration.
  • Your admission application is still being processed. Once the process has been completed, you will receive an email notifying your access time for registration.
  • You have not applied for admission to our college yet. You need to apply for admission in order to receive access time for registration.

Application deadlines still apply so it is important to make sure you reapply before application deadlines to guarantee that you will not incur any additional problems.

You can reapply online here.

How do I add or drop a class?

After you’ve followed the steps to register, you can modify your list of classes up until the deadline for registration.

Follow these steps to add or drop a class:

  1. Go to http://bellevuecollege.edu/enrollment/registration/register/
  2. Type your student identification number (SID) in the SID field
  3. Enter your student PIN in the PIN field
  4. Select the correct quarter from the quarter drop-down list
  5. Click the 'LOG IN' button
  6. Enter the item number of the classes you wish to add or drop
    (These fields will be located in the vertical frame of the schedule screen). Use the 4-digit item number format (i.e., 4592, 8854, and 2301, etc.)
  7. Click the Submit button

Note: If you enter a class item number for a class you are already registered in, the registration system will automatically interpret this as a request to drop the class. Likewise, if you enter a class item number that you are not yet registered for, the system will interpret the request as a new class you are adding to your existing registration.

How does the waitlist work?

If the class you wish to register for is full you will be asked if you want to be added to the waitlist.

The waitlist offers students a fair and consistent method of being enrolled in a full class if openings occur. If you choose to be put on the waitlist, you will be automatically registered for the class if a space becomes available the open registration period (see academic calendar for dates).

If you decide you no longer want to be on the waiting list for a class, return to web registration to check your waitlist status and have your name removed from the waiting list. Please check your schedule several times daily to find out if you have been registered for the class, and to be informed of your tuition and fees. If you register into another section of the same class you are waitlisted for, you will be dropped from the waitlisted section.

If you have not been registered via the waiting list process by the first day of classes, go to the class on the first day for further instructions, but continue to monitor your waitlist status until the end of the open registration period.

How do I troubleshoot 'server busy' or 'time-out' messages?

When you receive the message, 'Server session has timed out,' it can mean a couple different things.

You may be trying to access online services during off-hours.

Check the available service hours to first make certain you are accessing the service during an available time.

You may be accessing the service during a period of heavy use. This will sometimes result in receiving this message.

Keep trying to access the schedule information or online service--you should eventually be able to get through if you are accessing during available hours. If you continue to have problems and need immediate assistance, you can call (425) 564-2222.

If you are accessing the Internet through AOL, there may be a compatibility problem with your AOL browser.

You should be able to eliminate server 'time-out' messages when using AOL if you connect to the Internet with AOL, but use the Internet Explorer browser instead of the AOL browser.
