Welcome back to campus, the Home of the Renegades! It’s exciting to have you all back for another exciting and successful year. As you begin your final week before classes start up, here are some helpful reminders. As always stop by on campus this week and we can help you out.
** We HIGHLY recommend that students arrive early for classes for the first two weeks of classes. **
Students can find additional information on the Bakersfield College transportation webpage.
Purchasing your parking permit online is the best way to avoid long lines. Go to our parking web page and follow the instructions under Parking Permits. Here are some helpful tips:
Once you complete your order, you will be emailed to your BC student email account a temporary parking permit. You should print and use that permit until your permanent sticker comes in the mail. You must place your temporary permit in the lower left corner of your front windshield. You must also adhere to the expiration date on your temporary permit. If you do not receive your permanent sticker by the time your permit expires, please contact BC Public Safety for more information.
** Please remember to allot yourself enough time to find parking. We HIGHLY recommend that students arrive early for classes for the first two weeks of classes. **
Get your FREE BC Student ID Card! Stop by the Welcome Center in the Administration Building anytime. Your ID Card should be on your person every time you are on campus.
Order and get your books for classes before your classes start at the BC Bookstore. Be prepared for your first day of classes and show up with all the tools you need.
