We have great news for you, Renegades! Traditionally, we only offer Bridge to BC during the summer months but for the first time ever, we are offering Bridge to BC this January!
Bridge to BC is an interactive, 1 week, online, 1/2 unit course that helps you get a jump start on academic success.
We realized a lot of new students were not able to attend during summer, so now is your chance to attend. Even if you already took classes this fall, this course is designed to increase your success and keep your GPA on target.
Bridge to BC will help you navigate Canvas and the BC website more effectively, plus we share tips and tricks for how to stay on task and turn in polished assignments.
You also get personalized counseling and financial aid advice from our experts to make sure you are on the right education path and getting all of the financial aid you qualify for.
