BC is an affordable option for students staying close to home

Mon Jun 29, 2020

Due to the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus, many college students are opting to stay home for the upcoming Fall semester rather than leaving for a university. Fortunately, earning one’s education doesn’t have to be halted during this time.

Brazosport College offers an affordable option for those looking to continue working toward a college degree while staying safe and close to home. 

Online registration is currently open for Brazosport College’s Fall semester, with classes beginning Aug. 24. Students also have time to register for Summer II classes, which begin July 9.

All registration is conducted online through MyBC — at www.brazosport.edu/mybc — and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week during open registration periods.

Brazosport College’s Fall courses will be delivered in one of the following formats:

  • Online — Courses are taught entirely online with no face-to-face meetings.
  • Scheduled Live Online — Courses meet at designated class times through a real-time, two-way connection between students and instructors.
  • Blended — Courses meet both on campus and online.
  • Face-to-Face — Courses meet on campus each with physical distancing measures and other precautions in place.

These course deliveries have been selected with guidance from the Center for Disease Control and the Texas Department of State Health Services.

More information about Brazosport College’s plans for the Fall 2020 semester can be found at www.brazosport.edu/backtobc.

The ongoing pandemic has also economically affected many students. As a result, Brazosport College has COVID-19 Emergency Assistance available through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to directly address student expenses.

Students are encouraged to apply for this aid and can check their eligibility by opening their D2L account and see if they are enrolled in a course called “COVID-19 Emergency Assistance.” From there, follow the links and complete the application survey. All applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis.

For more information on COVID-19 Emergency Assistance, visit Brazosport.edu/coronavirus/CARESAct.

Advisors are also available to students through the College’s e-counselor services at www.brazosport.edu/ecounseling. E-counselor services are available from Monday to Thursday from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Fridays. 

For assistance paying for classes, Brazosport College’s Financial Aid Department is open and serving students by email at finaid@brazosport.edu.
