Print E-mail

Welcome to Baton Rouge Community College

BRCC has an open admissions policy. Graduates of a state-approved high school, home-schooled students (Board of Elementary and Secondary Education approved programs) and individuals who have obtained the General Equivalency Diploma (GED) are all eligible for admission.


Upon admission, a student may register for courses according to published registration dates. Students should note that registration is simply the selection of classes that one wishes to take. Once a student has been admitted, has registered for their chosen courses, and has completed the payment procedure, he or she has completed the enrollment process and is officially enrolled.

Students are admitted without regard to race, religion, sex, national origin, age, physical disability, marital status or veteran status.  Admission to the college does not ensure admission to a particular program of study.
