Registration Dates and Deadlines

Students can find out their specific registration date and time, important registration information and tuition dates and deadlines for the upcoming registration period.

 

Self-Service

Self-Service is the BAC's online student service tool. Here students can do the following:

  • Register for classes - Instructions on how to register for classes are available here.
  • View your course schedule
  • Access grades and unofficial transcript
  • Access student account information and pay bills online

All matriculated students have a Self-Service account. If you have trouble logging into your account, please contact the IT Help Desk at help@the-bac.edu or 617.585.0191.

 

Course Pre-requisites

Certain courses require the completion of a pre-requisite course prior to registering. Pre-requisites for courses will be listed in the course description in Self-Service. Students will need to have the approval of the Dean to override a pre-requisite.

 

Independent Study

An independent study allows students to design a course specific to their educational interests and needs, or to take a class that is not offered in the current semester. Learn more about the Independent Study option, including policies and guidelines.

 

Course Waitlist

The Registrar's Office handles all waitlists for courses that are full. If you would like to be added to the waitlist for a course you will need to submit an Add/Drop Request form to the Registrar's Office or online via studentforms.the-bac.edu.

Do not call in with your request - you can only be added to the waitlist by written request. In the meantime, it is important to find an alternate course that fits your schedule, in the event that your first choice remains unavailable. If a seat opens in a waitlisted course the first student on the waitlist will be enrolled in the course and will be notified of this via email.

ProArts Connect

The Professional Arts consortium, ProArts, is an association of six neighboring Boston institutions of higher education dedicated to the visual and performing arts. ProArts coordinates programs among its members to expand educational opportunities and resources for participating institutions, and to enrich the arts and arts education in Boston and throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

BAC students may enroll in pre-approved courses for credit during the fall and spring semesters at any of the Pro Arts schools (Berklee College of Music, The Boston Conservatory, Emerson College, Massachusetts College of Art and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts). Cross-registration forms are available from the BAC Registrar during select periods only. Unlike courses taken elsewhere for transfer credit, grades earned at ProArts schools do count and are factored into the GPA. ProArts registration is not available during the summer semester. Students should speak with Advising or their Dean before registering for a ProArts course to make sure it will count as transfer credit.

For more information, please visit ProArts Connect


Continuing Education Students

Non-degree students who would like to register for an individual course, as a non-matriculating student, may do so through Continuing Education at the BAC. Students interested in enrolling in a BAC Certificate Program may visit Certificates and Individual Courses for more information.

Continuing Education students can register for individual courses online via Self-Service. Dates when registration begin and end can be found on the Academic Calendar. Payment is due at the time of registration. Students who are eligible to receive a tuition discount will need to submit a Registration Form to the Registrar's Office for processing.

For additional information, please contact Continuing Education in the Registrar's Office at ce@the-bac.edu.
