General Eligibility

We admit:

  • Any applicant who has graduated from high school, or is 16 or 17 years old with a proof of a GED completion, or is 18 years of age or older.
  • Currently enrolled high school students who successfully assess into college-level English. However, these students are admitted quarter-by-quarter and are not considered “continuing students” unless they have been admitted through the Running Start Program.
  • Selected applicants who meet the qualifications for selective-admissions programs. Some selective-admissions programs have enrollment limits and cannot accept all qualified applicants.
  • If you are still in high school, you may be eligible for one of BC’s High School Programs.


Some exceptions for entrance to the college are made on a case-by-case basis if you do not meet eligibility criteria. If you would like to inquire about eligibility submit your question to Enrollment Services. People registering for a non-credit class through BC Continuing Education are not required to apply for admissions. Explore non-credit Continuing Education offerings.
