Bladen Community College subscribes to an “open door” admissions policy.
This policy provides for admission of legal residents of the United States who are high school graduates or 18 years old, or emancipated minors.
An undocumented immigrant shall be admitted to Bladen Community College only if he or she attended and graduated from a United States public high school, private high school, or home school that operates in compliance with state or local law (see Admission of Undocumented Immigrants for further clarification).
High school graduation, an adult high school diploma, or a high school equivalency certificate is required for admission to diploma or degree programs offered by Bladen Community College. Students not completing such a program must complete the high school equivalency or attain an adult high school diploma. A legal resident who is a non-graduate and 18 years old may be admitted to any certificate program.
Bladen Community College serves all students and prospective students regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, or disability. Affirmative Action, Equal Educational Opportunities and compliance with the American with Disabilities Act are viewed as an integral part of the College’s mission and purpose. An entrance test or a high school transcript will be used in determining the student’s ability to make satisfactory progress at Bladen Community College.
Applicants are evaluated and counseled into programs which are considered most appropriate to meet their needs and objectives, consistent with the student’s aptitude and expressed interests. Appropriate developmental or remedial support is provided to assist students in overcoming deficiencies in their preparation for collegiate study.
High school students enrolled in the Career and College Promise Program may be admitted to appropriate college courses upon approval by the high school principal and the college admissions office.
