Visiting Students

Summer sessions are a perfect time to take courses at Bergen Community College and transfer them back to your home institution.

The process is simple: no need to take the Basic Skills placement test or meet with an academic advisor to register.

Simply follow these steps:

  1. Complete Visiting Student Application Form
  2. Complete Registration Form (search online for classes by clicking here)
  3.  It is recommended that you obtain a permission letter from your home institution permitting you to take course(s) at Bergen Community College.

You may provide a college transcript (official or unofficial) that illustrates that you have met requisites for the desired class.

EMAIL and MAIL Option:

Email/mailed registrations will be processed starting Thursday, April 13 and will be based on the availability of the seats in the class.

If you already have a Bergen Community College e-mail account use it whenever possible.

It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that credits will transfer back to their home institution.
To have your Bergen transcript sent to your home institution, please see:
If you are considering staying enrolled with Bergen, Fall registration will remain open to you.
