Registration Guide

The first time your registered for classes was during New Student Registration with the help of BBCC Faculty and Staff. Now that you’re a current student you will need to do a little more of the work yourself. The first thing you need to know is that you normally register for the next quarter about six weeks in advance. That means that around mid-terms you will have the opportunity to register for classes for the upcoming quarter. Before you can do that there are a couple things you need to do:

You will NEED TO
  1. Know your Registration Access Time
    • This is the earliest time you can register for classes
    • This NOT an appointment with your advisor
    • Your time is based on the number of credits you’ve earned
    • The more credits you have, the sooner you register
  2. Know your registration PIN
    • If you have earned LESS than 30 credits you must meet with your advisor
      • Your advisor will provide you with a quarterly registration PIN
    • If you have earned 30 or MORE credits your registration PIN is your Global PIN
      • This is typically your birthday (MMDDYY) unless you have changed it
  3. Schedule an advising appointment at least 1-2 weeks in advance of your Registration Access Time with your Academic or Program Advisor (instructor, TRIO, counselor, etc.)
    • Your quarterly registration PIN is an assigned six-digit number
    • You will need the quarterly registration PIN to register online
