Career Exploration: Not sure what college major to pursue? Have you forgotten what you really wanted out of life as you focused on earning an income, caring for loved ones, or handling life’s many ups and downs? Pursuing an education is one of the biggest, and sometimes scariest, decisions you can make. Completing a Career Exploration Workshop is a great step to make sure you are on the right path toward building a career around your skills and passions. Workshops are offered weekly and are free of charge.
Financial Aid: Do you have questions about how to pay for college? Need help applying for financial aid? Have questions about using military benefits? Not sure where to start? No problem! Attend one of our Financial Aid Workshops to get the information and help you need. No need to register.
We will send you a link to your personal and BTC email allowing you to sign up for an ARO session. This ARO session will include meeting your advisor, planning and creating an academic plan, and registering for classes. Additional information regarding financial aid, payment plans, books, tools, and supplies will be discussed.
Held the Saturday before the fall and spring semesters begin, Smart Start Day helps you get ready for the upcoming semester:
The following programs require students to petition for entry: Dental Hygienist, Diagnostic Medical Sonography & Vascular Technology (DMS/VT), Nursing, Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA), Radiography, and Surgical Technology. In order to be eligible to petition the program for entry, you must apply to the college, meet all program-specific eligibility requirements, and attend a Health Sciences petition meeting specific to the program you plan to petition.
