Priority Registration and Advising

Priority Advising Fall 2017 Header Image

Don't miss out on the BCC courses you really want. To take advantage of Priority Registration and Advising:

  • Click here to get started making an appointment online, then follow these steps. PLEASE NOTE: This is for the Fall River Campus only:
    • Login in using your BCC Student ID # as your Login and your home Zip Code as your Password
    • Select Service > Advising > Fall River
    • Choose an available date
    • Select an available block of time that fits your schedule.


If you are a student currently enrolled at BCC, you can register early during Priority Registration in November and April, and information is mailed to you. Priority Registration for current students enables you to pick classes early and meet one-on-one with an academic advisor by appointment.

If you are a new student, your first step is to take the Accuplacer Placement Test. After completing the test, you’ll register to attend a New Student Orientation session where advisors will help interpret your placement scores.

When and how to register for classes

If you are a returning student, you can register early during Priority Registration in November and April. After the priority registration time period, you can receive advising and course registration for the upcoming semester on a walk-in basis in the Advising Center. Although it's a busy time for you, it is important to register on time to gain access to the best selection of courses and class meeting times. Your advisor is ready to help you plan your academic program and select the courses you'll need to complete your major program requirements.

Students may register for classes in one of several ways:

  • Login to your accessBCC account and self-register
  • Register online
