Winter 2016

Can students at colleges other than BPCC take advantage of the Winter Session?

YES! The winter session courses are open to all students and we already have scores of students from other colleges and universities enrolled.

Will credits transfer to my college?

Most of the courses we are offering in Winter Session are on the Board of Regents’ Master Articulation Matrix and will transfer to any college or university in Louisiana.

REMEMBER: Students are advised to double check the transferability of courses with their home institution.

Which classes will transfer?

Review the Board of Regents’ Master Articulation Matrix and if you still have questions, call BPCC’s Center for Student Success at 318-678-6489 and speak to a BPCC Advisor.

How much does each class cost?

Tuition and fees for a 3 credit hour course at BPCC is approximately $540; this can be as much as 1/3 the cost of a similar course at other colleges/universities.

Can I use financial aid?

If you are a BPCC student and have been awarded federal financial aid at BPCC for the spring 2017 semester, your spring aid will pay for the winter session classes. Please view your spring awards via LOLA to make sure your spring awards will cover both your spring balance and your Winter Session balance.

If you are a visiting student, you will not be awarded financial aid for the Winter Session.
