New Student Orientation
The New Student Orientation is for new students to make connections, learn about resources available to them, hear useful tips for college success, and meet faculty members. This is a great opportunity to explore BTC’s campus and mingle with other new students.
New Student Orientation takes place the day before classes begin each quarter.
If you have any questions please contact the Admissions and Student Resource Center at 360-752-8345 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pay Tuition and Fees
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. To view current tuition and fee rates, and for information regarding the BTC Tuition Waiver of Nonresident Operating Fee Differential, please visit our Tuition & Fees webpage.
Pay online with a Visa or MasterCard credit (not debit) card, or pay at the Cashier window, located on the main floor of the College Services (CS) building, where you may use cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, or financial aid award.
Student ID Card
A photo ID or Student ID card (available for $8.00 at the Campus Store) is required for some registration transactions. Your Student ID qualifies you for discounts on Whatcom Transit Authority (WTA) bus passes and at many local vendors, plus access to the Western Washington University and Whatcom Community College libraries.
Find textbook lists or take your printed class schedule to the Campus Store, located in the Campus Center (CC) building. Tip: We do NOT recommend purchasing texts for any other quarter than the current one in which you are registered.
