RISE changes due to COVID-19
Currently in place

  • The high school GPA will not expire after 10 years.
  • Colleges may use the unweighted high school GPA from a United States high school regardless of graduation date.
  • This is currently in place. The RISE advisory board will determine if this remains the permanent policy.


Curriculum courses at BCC require foundational skills in reading, English and math.  Unless applicants meet one of the test exemptions, the Reinforced Instructions for Student Excellence (RISE) test is required to identify areas where remediation is needed.

Before Testing:

  1. Complete Residency Determination & the BCC Admissions Application
  2. Bring your BCC Student ID # & an Official Photo ID with first and last name (i.e. driver’s license, school, military, work ID or passport)
