Tuition, Fees, Cost Estimates
You are considered "Officially Enrolled" when your tuition and fees are paid in full. Tuition and Fees are due in full by the date indicated on the College Calendar. Tuition and fees are subject to change without notice.
BTC adjusts tuition and fees annually, according to state regulations and program and course costs. Adjustments are effective as soon as they are implemented, which may be during the academic year—so check here for up-to-date information.
Fall Quarter Tuition & Fees are estimated each year and then are recalculated to reflect increases approved by the Legislature and Board of Trustees after those decisions are finalized, usually by early August. Updated student account balances will be emailed before the Fall Tuition and Fee due date.
