Frequently Asked Questions

How do I order my official transcript?

You can order your official transcript online, by mail or in-person. We recommend ordering your transcript online for quickest processing and the ability to track your order.

When can I register for classes?

Check the enrollment calendar for registration dates for upcoming quarters. Continuing student registration dates and times are set based on the total credits completed (excludes currently enrolled credits). New students and former students returning after 4 or more quarters register during the open registration period.  Go here for more information.

How do I log in to register?

1. Go here
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

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.

Why is my tuition rate so high?

Tuition rates are based on your residency classification. If you register during open registration and have not previously submitted the general admissions application, you need to submit an admissions application to have your residency status determined. If you’ve submitted the general admissions application but are still being charged non-resident tuition, please see our residency page for more information.

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, submit a Student Central ticket logged in from your BC NetID.

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 (2 digit month, 2 digit day and last 2 digits of the year). For example, if you date of birth is April 15, 1980 your PIN number would be: 041580.
If you have not changed your PIN since you were enrolled at BC, try to use your birth date to log in.

You should change your PIN on a regular basis to further protect your personal information. Changing your PIN can easily be located from the Online Services menu.

How do I confirm my registration time?

You may confirm your registration time online now.

Continuing students can begin registering at their appointed time (or anytime after) and new & former students begin registering during open registration.

Registration deadlines 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?

      • Registration access times are only assigned to new students and former students who haven’t taken classes in the past 4 quarters. All other students register during open registration.

What are the registration deadlines?

Check the academic calendar for admissions, registration and payment deadlines.

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://www.bellevuecollege.edu/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 ends on the business day before the quarter starts.

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 during the open registration period (see academic calendar for dates). The waitlist will check for class openings each day at 7 a.m. It is important to check your schedule daily (at least once after 7 a.m.) If you are registered into a class from the waitlist we recommend paying for the class immediately to avoid being dropped for non-payment. If you register into another section of the same class you are waitlisted for, you will be dropped from the waitlisted section.

If you decide you no longer want to be on the waiting list for a class, go to web registration to check your waitlist status and have your name removed from the waiting list.  If you are registered into a class from the waitlist you should pay the class immediately to avoid being dropped for non-payment.
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 7 a.m. on the business day prior to the first day of the quarter, and still wish to be added to the class, go to the class on the first day for further instructions (if you still wish to attempt to register for the class).

How do I pay?

You may pay for classes online by credit card using credit card payment login. Follow steps for logging in and click through the screens to the final “check-out” page. Provide your credit card information and complete steps as outlined.

How do I buy textbooks online?

You may purchase your required textbooks from the BC Bookstore.

How do I withdraw from classes?

Read about withdrawing from classes and how tuition and fee refunds are awarded.

What is the block on my records?
