Bladen Community College fall registration nearly complete
Source Date: August 20, 2012
The late registration period ended Monday, August 20, at Bladen Community College. Only a few high school students, who will attend technical programs at the College through the Career and College Promise program, and students who plan to enroll in the Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) program remain to be registered.
High school students who plan to enroll in BCC technical programs through Career and College Promise cannot register at the college until their high schools open for the fall semester, according to BCC Dean of Enrollment Barry Priest. The county's high schools are slated to open on August 27.
The BLET class is not scheduled to begin until October 1, and though students who plan to enroll in this program must complete a number of steps in the application process early, they do not officially register until the class begins.
Priest said fall curriculum enrollment at the college should exceed 1,300 after the remaining high school students register early next week. He pointed out that the percentage of students enrolled in full-time programs of study has increased over last fall's percentage. Though the number of students who enrolled during the final registration period was lower than that of the past few years, a steady flow of students registered throughout the period. One reason fewer students enrolled during the final registration period was that the college offered students who planned to attend classes during the fall semester three different enrollment periods in which to register, according to Priest. The first registration period for the fall semester was back in April.
A number of new courses and courses that had not been offered in a number of years were added for the fall semester. Many of those courses were in the area of the humanities.
In addition, a new machinist program was added. Students who complete this program will graduate with a certificate in machining. With many of the qualified machinists around the nation nearing retirement age, it is projected that jobs in the field will likely become plentiful in the coming years. Students who enter this program can also earn certificates in other technical specialties and an associate degree in industrial technology.
