Completing BC Orientation Face-to-Face/In-Person Opportunities: Part B

Welcome to Brazosport College! Home of the Brazosport Gators! The New Student Orientation Page is here to provide you with information regarding our orientations, programs, and support systems specifically for our new students.

This section of our page will focus solely on our Face-to-Face/In-Person Opportunities, which are considered Part B of your journey of becoming a Brazosport College student. We are excited to offer opportunities to meet our new students face-to-face on the campus of BC!

In response to COVID-19 and CDC protocols, we are pleased to announce hybrid offerings of our New Student Orientations for our BC students. We are excited to offer face-to-face/in-person New Student Orientation sessions as well as online opportunities. We are able to offer our new spring 2022 registrants and our returning BC students, who need orientation, New Student Orientation classes using our online Comevo module (Part A) and a face-to-face (Part B) in-person sessions held in the DAC or Gator Hall. During these sessions, our new students are able to meet staff members from several of our departments and engage in activities designed specifically with them in mind!

Our face-to-face sessions will begin December 9, 2021 and conclude January 22, 2022. It will be important to register as soon as possible for an in-person session, due to our enrollment limitations and seating capacity. Completing your orientation at the beginning of your college career is a best practice and should be considered a priority for our new students.

The New Student Orientation for Brazosport College must be completed in two parts (Part A and Part B). Students should, first-Part A, complete the New Student Orientation online module using Comevo.

Part B is the mandatory completion of a face-to-face/in-person New Student Orientation held at Brazosport College in the DAC or Gator Hall. Upon completion of Part A, students must independently register for our In-Person Part B session using our online registration form. It is extremely important that students register in advance for these in-person sessions to ensure that we can prepare an engaging experience for all our students and parents in attendance.

All in-person sessions will be held at BC and will be limited to the first eighty students who register online. There will be two sessions available for our new students held in December. Please complete your registration form and attend the in-person session as soon as possible. Waiting until the last minute may cause you to miss out on your orientation selections and cause you to have holds placed on your registration account.

When you register for your orientation, you will receive an email confirming your registration prior to the actual session. Please print your confirmation or take a picture your screen to ensure documentation of registration.

We are also excited to offer an Information Fair on the day of our New Student Orientations. This Information Fair will be an opportunity to interact with students, faculty, and staff on our wonderful campus. On orientation day, please arrive 30 minutes early to have a chance to play games, win prizes, and see all the great programs that BC has to offer. Parents are welcome to attend, with their new student, and get an overview of college life at BC! We do ask that alternative arrangements be made for childcare so that students get the most out of orientation.

Face-to-Face/In-Person NSO will introduce students to:

  • Student Support, campus policies, academic resources, specialty programs, and student life
  • Brazosport Police Department and safety and security
  • Financial services and ways to pay for college
  • Information on Academic Advising and support systems
  • Technology Information Systems used at BC
  • Campus life and a tour of our facilities

Holds for New Student Orientation will be released once a student has completed Parts A & B of our two-part orientation. Our department will verify completion of both parts of NSO and issue credit to students two to three business days after the official verification process has been completed for both parts. Students will need to make sure to attend the entire orientation and complete the orientation survey to receive credit and to have holds released. If you will be late or need to leave early, you will need to choose another orientation date. Please schedule two and a-half hours for New Student Orientation. You won’t want to miss it!

Remember: In order for you to participate in the BC Face-to-Face/In-Person Session (Part B), you will need to register before your orientation date.

Register for the New Student Orientation session. 

Once you have completed this session, you will be given credit for Part B of orientation, only. You must complete Part A and Part B to receive full credit for Brazosport College Orientation.
