  • Choose your courses.

Attend your advising session:

What are Mandatory Placement Exams?

In accordance with Kentucky State Legislature, degree-seeking students who have not submitted ACT/SAT scores, or who have submitted ACT scores of 17 or lower in English, 19 or lower in Reading and/or 18 or lower in Math, must take a Mandatory Placement Exam. The purpose of this exam is to place students in the developmental/transitional or collegiate-level course appropriate for their skills. Transitional courses are designed to give students the skills they need to succeed in their collegiate-level courses. Students who are not seeking a degree, or who have submitted ACT scores of 18 or higher in English, 20 or higher in Reading and 19 or higher in Math, are exempt from taking Mandatory Placement Exams. However, students planning to take MAT 150 (College Algebra) at Bluegrass Community and Technical College will need to take the math portion of the Mandatory Placement Exam if their Math ACT is below 21.

What role do I play in my advising process

  • Familiarize yourself with the BCTC Catalog.
  • Understand and be knowledgeable about degree requirements, policies, procedures, and deadlines.
  • Review course options prior to meeting with advisor.
  • Schedule and attend every advising appointment.
  • Contact advisor immediately if you have questions or concerns about a class, semester or overall GPA, or general academic progress.

What role does my advisor play in my academic advising process?

Bluegrass Community and Technical College provides quality academic advising to all students; however, students are ultimately responsible for knowing the requirements of their particular academic program, selecting courses that meet those requirements, monitoring their progress toward graduation, scheduling and keeping academic advising appointments, and being prepared for advising sessions.

When can I add/drop/register for/withdraw from a class?
