Office of Admissions

Bevill State Community College has an open admission policy. The open admission policy allows Bevill State to admit all applicants based on their unique criteria. Some programs require that applicants meet additional guidelines before admission is granted to those programs (please refer to specific program guidelines).



Alabama State Board of Education policy 801.01, Admissions General, requires that applicants to Alabama Community College System institutions provide one primary form of documentation OR two secondary forms of documentation prior to admission.


For admission to any Alabama Community College System institution, applicants must provide one primary form of identification documentation such as an unexpired Alabama Driverís license, an unexpired Alabama identification card, an unexpired U.S. passport, or an unexpired U.S. permanent resident card. If applicants are unable to provide one of the primary forms of identification documentation, then applicants must provide two secondary forms of identification documentation. Secondary forms of identification documentation must include a photo identification card and one additional form of identification such as a Certificate of Naturalization, a Social Security Card, or a certified copy of a U.S. birth certificate. If appropriate documentation is not provided during the application process, the application is considered incomplete with a pending admission status and applicant will not be allowed to register at Bevill State. All documentation must be presented in person or a notarized copy must be sent via U.S. mail to the Office of Student Services.
