Questions and Answers

Apply Now!

How do I complete the BPC admissions process?

All applicants must complete the admissions application and submit the $35.00 application fee. Freshmen must submit an official high school transcript and official SAT or ACT scores. Transfer students with less than thirty transferable hours must meet the freshmen admissions requirements and also submit all official college transcripts. Transfer students with more than thirty semester hours are only required to submit official transcripts from all colleges attended. Although we operate on a rolling admissions basis, you are strongly encouraged to apply early because campus housing, scholarships, and some forms for financial aid are contingent upon your acceptance and do have much earlier deadlines.

What do I do if I am undecided about my major?

Brewton-Parker Colllege is a great place to explore different career paths. Not only are faculty very accessible and interested in helping you find God's path for your life, but there is a Counseling and Career Center on campus to help you choose what is best for you. You’ll have plenty of time to take some of your basic core classes before having to declare a major.

What types of financial aid are available at BPC and how do I apply for them?

Financial aid includes grants (based on financial need), scholarships (based on academic, athletic, or community acheivement), and loans. The State of Georgia offfers the very generous HOPE scholarship program.

The first step to apply for financial aid is to obtain the BPC Financial Aid packet and begin filling out required forms as soon as possible. The most important form is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form (FAFSA), which may be completed after January 1 of the year you are planning to enroll. Your admission counselor will help you every step of the way.

What on-campus housing is available? How do I apply?

There are a number of dorms from which to choose.

Dowling Hall– capacity 52 Female Residents

Friendship Hall– capacity 52 Female Residents

McAllister Hall - capacity 100 Female Residents

LeRoy Hall – capacity 106 Male Residents

Thompson Hall – capacity 100 Male Residents

Baron Ridge - capacity 30 Male Residents

Once you have been accepted to BPC, you will receive a housing form in the mail. Once submitted, a spot will be reserved for you in one of our residence halls. The earlier you submit the housing form, the better your chances are to receive the residence hall of your choice. All the halls are air-conditioned and are already set up for local telephone service, cable television, and the Internet.

What steps does BPC take to make sure the campus is safe?

Crime on campus has been practically non-existent since BPC’s inception. It may seem cliche, but "everyone knows everyone" at Brewton-Parker College. That creates a very safe and secure environment. However, we do take precautions to ensure the safety of our campus.

We provide security for the campus seven days a week. All buildings are checked and locked before curfew. We also have Resident Directors and Resident Assistants who are trained to assist with the safety in our residence halls.

Hungry? Where to eat.

We have a traditional residence-dining hall that serves all-you-can-eat buffet style meals. The menu changes daily but always has a lot of variety. Our upstairs café has made-to-order items such as burgers, chicken sandwiches, pizza, fries and other snacks. We offer multiple meal plans, including an unlimited plan. As part of your meal plan, you also get flex dollars that you can spend in the upstairs café, the coffee shop in the student center, or the snack bar in the gym.

What about transportation? May freshmen have cars on campus?

Getting around campus will be one of the last things you’ll worry about at BPC. It is easy for students to walk from one classroom building to another in the allotted time in between classes. Everything on campus is a short walk from the residence halls. However, freshmen are allowed to have cars on campus. Students may pick up a parking decal from the student affairs office at the beginning of the semester.

What kinds of computing facilities are available? Should I bring my own computer to my dorm room?

Students may bring their own computers for their residence hall rooms. All of the Residence halls have access to the Internet. However, if you choose not to bring your own computer, there are three centrally located computer labs on campus, which provide Gateway computers for your use. E-mail accounts and Internet use are free.

What can I expect a BPC freshman class to be like?

The typical size of a freshmen class will probably remind you a lot of your high school classes. We don’t have lecture-style classrooms with hundreds of students. A freshman class has approximately twenty students; however, once students begin taking their major area classes, they will encounter even smaller classes. About seventy percent of our faculty hold a doctorate or terminal degree in their field of study.

What is the city of Mount Vernon like?

Mount Vernon is a peaceful rural town located about ninety miles from both Savannah and Macon. It is only ten minutes away from Vidalia, which has many of the conveniences students are used to in their hometowns. Vidalia has several shopping centers including a Super Wal-Mart, a movie theater, a bowling alley, and an abundance of restaurants.
