Orientation FAQs

New Student Orientation is an introduction to the resources available at Brazosport College as well as a way to build relationships with faculty, staff, and peers at BC.  New Student Orientation is comprised of an online module and a 2 hour on-campus session.

Students who have never taken college classes (at Brazosport College or any other college) are required to take New Student Orientation.  This includes dual credit students and students earning a Certificate.

Students who are required to attend New Student Orientation, but do not will have a hold placed on their account which will prevent them from registering for classes for the next semester.

Students who are unable to register for the on campus orientation session through myBC can visit an Enrollment Specialist at the Enrollment and Registrar's Office or call 979-230-3412.

Space is limited in each orientation session.  Students who are not registered for an on campus orientation session will be placed on a waiting list, beginning 30 minutes prior to the session.  If there are available spots in the session, students on the wait list will be allowed to participate.

Parents and guests can attend New Student Orientation; however they will be asked to sit separately from their student as we want the students to interact with one another.  An optional parent/guest meeting will be hosted by the Dean of Student Services at each orientation session.

New Student Orientation sessions begin in Gator Hall, H-100. Students should enter the college through the sliding glass doors to the right of the BC Central entrance. Walk straight down the hall and Gator Hall will be on the right. You can download a campus map in order to assist you in finding Gator Hall.

Students should bring a picture ID to New Student Orientation. All other materials will be provided.

Students arriving late to New Student Orientation will not be allowed to attend, and will need to register for a different session.

For additional questions regarding New Student Orientation please contact 979-230-3412 or orientation@brazosport.edu.
