As part of its effort to understand the previous educational attainment among its students and effectively measure student progression, retention and success, the Community College of Beaver County will use the following classifications to classify students enrolling at the College.  Students in each classification will be required to submit a completed Admissions Application and additional documentation as identified herein as a condition of enrollment with the College.

High School Graduate

Those individuals seeking to enroll in credit certificate and/or degree programs and indicating high school graduation as their highest level of educational attainment will be accepted for enrollment under the category of High School Graduate.  Such individuals will be required to complete an Admission’s Application and to submit an official transcript documenting high school graduation to the Office of the Registrar.  The transcript must be forwarded directly from the high school to the College, and transcripts hand carried by the student will not be accepted.

GED Recipient

Those individuals seeking to enroll in credit certificate and/or degree programs and indicating successful completion of the General Education Development exam as their highest level of educational attainment will be accepted for enrollment under the category of GED Recipient.  Such individuals will be required to submit a completed Admission’s Application and provide official copies of their GED Certificate to the Office of the Registrar.

Individual Approval

Those individuals seeking to enroll in credit certificate and/or degree programs who have not graduated from high school or successfully completed the GED Certification may be accepted for enrollment on the basis of their ability to benefit from participation in college studies.  This status will be termed individual approval, and individuals seeking to enroll under this classification will be required to complete an admissions interview process to determine that the individual can benefit from college studies.

Transfer Student

Those individuals seeking to enroll in credit certificate and/or degree programs who have previously attended another college or university will be accepted for enrollment under the category of Transfer Student.  Such individuals will be required to submit official transcripts for all colleges/universities previously attended.  For a transcript to be considered official, it must be forwarded directly from the Registrar at the college/university where the credits were earned to the Office of the Registrar at CCBC.  Hand carried transcripts and/or transcripts stamped “issued to student” will not be accepted.

College Graduate

Those individuals seeking to enroll in credit certificate and/or degree programs and who have previously graduated with an associate degree, bachelor’s degree, or graduate degree from a community college, college or university will be accepted for enrollment as a College Graduate.  Such individuals will be required to submit official transcripts from the institution awarding the degree.  For the transcript to be considered official, it must be forwarded directly from the Registrar at the college/university awarding the degree to the Office of the Registrar at CCBC.  Hand carried transcripts and/or transcripts stamped “issued to student” will not be accepted.

Provisional Admission

Under certain conditions, individuals who have interest in temporary enrollment with the College but who do not anticipate completion of a certificate or degree may be permitted to enter the College under a provisional admissions status.  The Provisional Admission categories are as follow:

Dual Enrollment

High school students who have completed their sophomore year in high school and who are approved by their local school district to participate in an approved dual enrollment program will be allowed to enroll as a Dual Enrollment Student.  Such individuals must submit a form signed by their parent or legal guardian and the high school principal or designee.  The form must also specify the courses in which the individual may enroll.  An official high school transcript will be required, and the individual will be required to take the appropriate CCBC course placement exam.  Individuals accepted in this status may enroll for no more than two courses per semester.  The individual will not be eligible for financial aid benefits and may not enroll for developmental courses.

Early Admission

High school students who are seeking to enroll for college credit courses without participating in an approved dual enrollment program may be accepted for enrollment at the College through the Early Admission status.  Such individuals must submit a Request for Early Admission signed by their parent and an official high school transcript.  The individual must also take the appropriate College placement exams.  Individuals accepted in this status may enroll for no more than two courses per semester and will not be eligible for financial aid benefits.

Transient Student

An individual enrolled in a certificate/degree program with another college/university and wanting to take courses through CCBC to partially satisfy graduation requirements from the other institution may be permitted to enroll as a Transient Student.  Individuals permitted to enroll under this status will not be required to provide official transcripts for registration purposes.  Individuals accepted in this status who then seek to enroll in a subsequent Semester will be classified/reclassified as a Transfer Student and will be required to satisfy the requirements specified in that status.
