Companies and Organizations are invited to utilize the sponsorship billing process when sponsoring employees who are completing BCCC Continuing Education classes. You will not need to send a company/organization check or credit card with your employee at the time of registration. Instead, please submit a signed company/organization letter or memorandum on letterhead to our office via in-person, fax to (252) 940-6254, email to, or postal mail with the following key items:

  • Company/Organization point of contact information (in the event there are questions regarding a student or payment)
  • Billing Information (include mailing address and email address)
  • State the intent of who and what class(es) your company/organization will be responsible for in the registration process (i.e. registration fees, testing, textbooks, etc.)

Once we have received the letter/memorandum and student(s) registration form(s), the student will be registered for the class. Our BCCC Business Office will submit an invoice to your company/organization. If you have any further questions about the Sponsorship Billing process, please contact the Continuing Education Registration & Records Clerk at or (252) 940-6375.

A student who officially withdraws from class(es) prior to the first class meeting will be eligible for a 100 percent refund. Also, a student is eligible for a 100 percent refund if an applicable class is cancelled due to insufficient enrollment.

After the respective class begins, a 75 percent refund shall be made upon the written request of the student if the student officially withdraws from the class prior to or on the census date of the scheduled hours of the class. NOTE: Only class fees can be refunded in this circumstance. Technology, malpractice, accident, drug test, and testing fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.

Registration fees for self-supporting classes are non-refundable once the class begins.

Where a student, having paid the required registration fee for a semester, passes away during that semester (prior to or on the last day of examinations of the college the student was attending), all registration fees for that semester may be refunded to the estate of the deceased.
