Fall is coming to a close, and it’s time to start preparing for the spring semester at Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC). One key to a successful semester is preparation. That means knowing ahead of time when classes start, how long the drop/add period is, and when exams will be taking place.

Registration for spring classes begins on November 13, and classes start on January 16. If you don’t get the classes you want during registration, or if you change your mind on a class, you’ll have another chance during the drop/add period from January 16–30 to straighten out your schedule.

Get all the dates and deadlines you need to know from the full academic calendar below. You can print it to hang at your desk, or jot down the most important dates in your planner. We’re wishing all our BRCC students a most successful spring semester!
