Currently Enrolled Students

Registration Time

If you are enrolled in BBCC classes for credit you will be assigned a registration access time for the following quarter.  This access time is for registration only.  It is your responsibility to arrange to meet with your advisor prior to this time.  To find out when you register, visit BBCC’s home page at www.bigbend.edu. Select Student Kiosk and then Registration Access Time.

Quarterly PIN

You will need a Quarterly PIN to register.  If you have earned fewer than 30 credits when registration begins, you will be assigned a random PIN.  You must meet with an advisor to get the PIN.  It is used only for registering for classes for this quarter.  For other tasks, such as viewing your transcript, use your Global PIN, which is the 6 numbers of your birth date (mmddyy) unless you changed it.

If you have earned at least 30 credits, your Quarterly PIN is the same as your Global PIN.

Web Registration

You may register online at Big Bend’s home page, www.bigbend.edu.  Select Student Kiosk.  Select Class Schedule Planner to have the computer system help you design a schedule.  Select Register for Classes to sign up for classes.  You will not be allowed to register for classes before your scheduled access time (except for zero credit courses).

In Person Registration

Registration forms are available in the Admissions/Registration Office.  You must submit the completed form to registration personnel at your scheduled registration access time or anytime after through the first day of classes.  If you have completed fewer than 30 credits when registration begins, you will need an advisor’s signature on the form.  You do not need to wait for your scheduled time to register for zero credit courses.

Returning Students

Returning student process

Students who were previously admitted and have attended Big Bend Community College in the past may register for classes without re-applying.  You must contact the Student Services office at 509-793-2061 or email admissions@bigbend.edu in advance so that your quarterly PIN can be created.  You cannot register without a quarterly PIN. If you have earned fewer than 30 credits, you must meet with an advisor to get your quarterly PIN. If you have completed 30 or more credits, the quarterly PIN set up will be the same as your global PIN.  The  default global PIN is the six numbers of your date of birth, formatted mmddyy (only the last two digits of your birth year). Be sure to keep this number in a safe place.  You will need it for any schedule changes during the quarter, and to check or change your waitlist status.

Registration Times

If you have ever been enrolled at BBCC you may register for classes beginning the first day following current student registration access times. You will not be allowed to register before this time (except for zero credit courses) unless you were admitted and call for an appointment time. You will be given an access time based on the total number of credits you have completed. Call the Student Services office at 509-793-2061 for more information. Please see the current quarter schedule for dates.

If you have not applied for admission and do not plan to pursue a degree or certificate, you may register during open registration each quarter, if space is available and you meet any prerequisites for a class.  From the Class Schedule page, check Important Dates for the quarter for specific dates.
