How to Register
If you are a new English Language Learner at the college, and want to figure out the best English language program for you, you should follow the steps below.
- Step 1: Create a new account in our system here: Register for a WFED account here. This account will be used to create a student ID for you. You need this number to complete Steps 2 and 4. On the page, click the “Create Account” button at the bottom. **If you already have a BHCC ID from the college, skip this step and go to Step 2.**
- Step 2: When you create your account, we will send you your student ID number. Use your ID number to complete the ELL Guided Self-Placement (GSP). This survey will tell you which English Language program is right for you based on your proficiency level.
If the GSP recommends you for placement into BELL classes, continue to Steps 3 and 4.
- Step 3: Complete the BELL Intake Form.
- Step 4: Schedule your placement test through the Assessment Center. Choose the BELL Assessment.
