    Verify College Enrollment and Advising

    Verify enrollment at your current college

Are you currently attending another institution but want to take a course at BTC? Many students from Whatcom Community College and Western Washington University attend BTC to take general education courses to transfer back to their institution. We are happy to assist you in enrolling in courses at BTC! Contact the Admissions and Student Resource Center at 360-752-8345 to schedule an appointment. Simply bring the following 2 items when you meet with your BTC advisor:

  • Your student ID card from your current college
  • An unofficial transcript from your current college

When you meet with your BTC advisor, they will verify your current enrollment, help you select classes, and fill out the Class Approval for Co-Enrolled form.

While we recommend that all BTC students participate in our mandatory student orientation, as a student currently attending other college that requirement will be waived.
