Apply to Bristol Community College


      Applicants must have a high school diploma, state-approved equivalency credential or college degree. Bristol has an open enrollment policy in keeping with the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education’s “Open Door” philosophy. The open enrollment policy does not apply to students seeking admission into programs listed here.

      International Students seeking to enroll at Bristol on an F-1 Student Visa must meet additional criteria in order to be admitted.

      Ready to apply? Here are some helpful tips:

      High School Seniors | Create your account with a personal email rather than school email so that we may continue to contact you after graduation. 

      Application Login vs. myBristol Login |  Use this application portal to complete the admissions application. Once admitted to the college, you will receive instructions on creating your myBristol login, which will be your official digital account with the college, including access to a Bristol email address.
