The Fall 2020/Spring 2021 Semester

After careful consideration, along with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Texas Department of State Health Services, the delivery format of courses will remain altered for the Spring 2021 semester. These changes help promote physical distancing and reduce contact among students, faculty, and staff.

Fall and Spring courses will be delivered in one of the following formats:

Course Format & DescriptionBenefits
Online
These courses are taught entirely online and require no traditional face-to-face meetings. You will be able to access your course at online.brazosport.edu when the semester begins.
Students have the flexibility to work on the class material at anytime and anywhere while still meeting scheduled due dates for assignments and tests. Students can engage with the instructor and ask questions via email, Zoom, and online office hours. Students have the ability to work from the safety and convenience of their home.
Scheduled Live Online
These courses meet through a real-time, two-way video connection between students and instructors. Students must log in at the designated class times. You will be able to access your course at online.brazosport.edu when the semester begins.
Students can participate live in class lectures and activities. Students have the opportunity to ask questions and receive immediate feedback during scheduled class time. Students have the ability to work from the safety and convenience of their own home.
Blended
These courses meet both on campus and online. Course content is posted online by the instructor for the student to complete. You will be able to access the online portion of your course at online.brazosport.edu when the semester begins.
Offers students live interaction with instructors and peers during face-to-face lectures and activities. Students can access the instructor in class (during scheduled times) as well as through email and Zoom meetings.
Face-to-Face
These courses meet on campus each week with physical distancing measures and other safety precautions in place.
This format features the most structured, and scheduled interaction with instructors.

About Blended and Face-to-Face Courses

We will offer limited "Face-to-Face" and "Blended" courses this fall and spring.

For Blended Courses: In order to reduce the number of students in a classroom at one time, students may rotate between receiving on campus and online instruction. This will allow all students in the class to experience both face-to-face and remote instruction.

For example, a course meeting on Tuesdays and Thursdays could meet in this format, limiting face-to-face interaction:

TuesdayThursday
Group A (50% of students)Face-to-Face on campusOnline instruction
Group B (50% of students)Online instructionFace-to-Face on campus

Questions Regarding Fall 2020/Spring 2021

Why does it seem as if some classes don't have as many open spots as last year?

The number of students allowed in each course may be lowered to accommodate social distancing.

If conditions require the College to convert all instruction to an online format, will students receive refunds?

At the College’s discretion, and to provide the safest environment for faculty, staff, and students, some or all instruction for the 2020-21 academic year may be delivered remotely. Tuition and mandatory fees have been set regardless of the method of instruction and will not be prorated or refunded in the event instruction occurs remotely for any part of the academic year.

What to Expect on Campus Icon

What to Expect on Campus

In an effort to slow the spread and reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we have implemented strong physical distancing and sanitation procedures across campus to protect the health of our students and staff.

When you return to campus:

Before entering a campus facility, you'll need to fill out the COVID-19 Health Screening questionnaire. The questionnaire has been designed to be quick and simple to fill out. You'll need to fill out the questionnaire each day you intend on visiting the Brazosport College campus.

Once completed, you will be shown either a green check mark with "APPROVED FOR ENTRY" if you've passed, or a red exclamation mark with "STAY HOME, STAY SAFE" if you failed, as well as your name, and the date you completed the questionnaire.

You can learn more about what it means to pass or fail by visiting the Approved for Entry page or Stay Home, Stay Safe page, respectively.

Anyone that does not pass the COVID-19 Health Screening questionnaire will not be allowed entry.

Face Masks and Facial Coverings:

Face masks or facial coverings are required for all students, employees, and visitors (ages 10 and up) any time on campus.

Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance. The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. To review different templates and methods of how to make masks at home, download the CDC’s DIY Face Covering Instructions.

Exceptions: If you are walking, running, or biking on the trails; if you are in your vehicle; if you are alone in your office with the door closed; if you are a welding student actively welding and wearing a welding face shield; and, if you are an instructor lecturing students, you may wear a face shield instead of a face mask in addition to maintaining 6ft. of distance. Otherwise, all individuals, students, faculty, staff, grounds keepers and contractors are to wear a face covering/mask.

If you forget to complete the screening:

If you arrive on campus without completing the Health Screening questionnaire, you can complete it using your smartphone.

If you do not have access to a computer or smartphone, computer stations are available at Human Resources located in the C-Wing lobby as well as in the Library located in the center of campus. Other computer locations may be listed in future updates.

These procedures are subject to change, so it's vital that you check your Brazosport College email for updates before heading to campus.

Once you're inside campus facilities:

  • We have collaborated with our custodial vendor, MBM, to conduct advanced cleaning protocols following the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines.
  • Physical barriers have been added in select places where it is difficult to maintain strict physical distancing guidelines.
  • Hand sanitizer stations have been installed across campus to encourage employees and students to sanitize their hands as often as possible.
  • The occupancy of restrooms has been limited based on facility size to ensure social distancing.
  • Some events - including business meetings - may be modified or cancelled to allow for physical distancing and limited contact.
  • Campus elevators will be limited to one individual at a time.
  • Water fountains have been shut off.

What you'll need to provide:

  • Name
  • Email Address (Preferably your Brazosport College email address)
  • Phone Number
  • Brazosport College ID Number or Date of Birth
  • College Affiliation

Based on guidance from health authorities, questions you'll be asked are:
