Guest students maintaining enrollment at another college or university are required to submit an unofficial transcript for courses that have a pre-requisite met at their home institution only.
Determine which courses you wish to take at BC3 and if they have a pre-requisite met at another college or university.
- If pre-requisite(s) is met at another college or university, obtain an unofficial transcript showing course is passed with a “C” or higher.
- If you have not met the English/Math pre-requisite(s), you may require placement testing. To determine if you do, call the Admissions Office at 724-284-8501.
- If the course has no pre-requisite, you may register online through the BC3 Student Portal or at any of our campus locations.
In some cases, the pre-requisite can be waived upon receipt of the unofficial transcript, allowing students to register online via the BC3 Student Portal. Please send unofficial transcripts to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with the course number(s) you want to take and a phone number where you may be reached.
An admissions representative will be in contact with you to confirm registration or next steps.
