Newly accepted students (new to college, transfer or readmitted after leaving BHCC for 5 or more years) will attend a mandatory Advising and Registration session (Part I of Orientation) where you will meet with an advisor and register for classes (see your acceptance email and the Ready Set Go checklist for details).

The waitlist system gives students a fair and equitable opportunity to add courses that are currently full/closed/have 0 seats available but might become available in the future. Being on a waitlist does not guarantee registration for the course.

  • You may add yourself to the waitlist for one section of a closed or waitlisted course; you may also register for an open seat in another section of that same course.
  • The waitlist system reviews openings at the end of each day and sends an automated email to your BHCC email the following morning; you have at least 24 hours to register for the course (make sure to View Account Summary and make any necessary payments by payment deadlines).  
  • If you have not registered by the deadline indicated in your email, the next person on the waitlist will be offered the seat.
  • The last notifications from the Waitlist system go out the day before the last official day of registration; no waitlists exist during our schedule adjustment (add/drop) period with the exception of late start and mini session courses.

 Schedule Adjustment (add/drop)

At the close of business on the last official day of registration (Academic calendar) the schedule adjustment (add/drop) period begins. Make the adjustment online; then view your Account Summary and make any necessary payments at the time of the adjustment. If you have difficulty and are unable to process a schedule adjustment online visit Student Central, Second Floor, B lobby, Charlestown Campus or the Enrollment Office on the Chelsea Campus. If you drop a course before the schedule adjustment deadline, you will receive a refund.  There are no refunds after the posted schedule adjustment deadlines.  The schedule adjustment period ends at 11:59 p.m. on the schedule adjustment deadline date.

You may add a course during schedule adjustment period if:

  • you have completed all the course prerequisites; and
  • view your Account Summary and make any necessary payments. If you are using financial aid, notify Student Central, Second Floor, B lobby, Charlestown that you’ve added a course.
