Students who complete Bridge to BC are significantly more likely to persist, and complete more units than students who haven’t completed.

PLUS, you get personalized one-on-one advising and financial aid assistance to make sure you are on the right path and getting all of the financial assistance you qualify for! The course will help you more effectively navigate Canvas and the BC website and you will learn so many tips and tricks to help you keep manage your time and turn in polished assignments.

Bridge to BC is an interactive, 1 week, online, 1/2 unit course! There are 2 options for January before the spring semester begins. Get a jump start on spring! Even if you already took classes this fall, this course is designed to increase your success and keep your GPA on target.

Don’t wait to enroll. These just opened this week and will fill quickly. Over 1,500 new students completed over the summer and their success rates are amazing!
