Register and Pay
Let’s get you enrolled!
Now you know what program you are interested in, what classes you have placed into and how you are going to pay for college. You are ready to sign up for classes!
Students will be initially classified as "resident" or "non-resident" based on the information provided on the Admissions Application. Bellingham Technical College complies with applicable state laws regarding residency classification. Washington residency law is codified in RCW 28B.15 and further explained in WAC 250.18.
Full-time or part-time? It depends on your needs, as well as space availability and program offerings. We recommend that you meet with an advisor to make an educational plan and consider your options.
Online or in-person? BTC offers a number of flexible learning options for students. Be aware that online classes require the same time commitment as face-to-face classes, if not more. For more information visit the elearning webpage.
