  • Provide proof of full-time enrollment: 12 or more hours enrolled in either 16-Week session, 12-Week session, or a 1st 8-Week and 2nd 8-Week session (provided, however that BCTC student has at least one class during the entire 16 weeks) and with 50% of classes on-site at a Cooper, Newtown, Leestown or Winchester BCTC campus.
