BCCC extends late registration

Published 4:13pm Wednesday, August 14, 2013

In the 10 years Betty Gray has worked at Beaufort County Community College, she has never seen a day as busy as Wednesday was. She found incoming students all over campus.

“They are lined up waiting for books and financial aid. They have overwhelmed the person at our registration desk,” Gray said. “They have lined up everywhere. They are all over the place.”

Gray said the unusually high level of activity was a good thing for the college.

“It’s just fantastic that these people have decided to go to college,” she said.

As a result of the overwhelming batch of students, BCCC will give students one more day to sign up for the new semester.

“We have been swamped today. So, (BCCC president) Dr. (Barbara) Tansey has decided to extend late registration for one more day,” Gray said.

Registration for the fall 2013 semester will end Thursday at 6 p.m.

BCCC faculty members have been asked to accommodate late registration for students beginning at 8 a.m. Thursday.

The N.C. General Assembly and the N.C. Board of Community Colleges establish tuition and fees at Beaufort County Community College.

Tuition for in-state students was recently set at $71.50 per credit hour and student fees at $2 per credit hour for a total of $73.50 per credit hour.

Tuition for out-of-state students was set at $263.50 per credit hour and student fees at $2 per credit hour for a total of $265.50.
