Q: Why is orientation mandatory?
A: New Student orientation is a tradition at B-CU. It is designed to provide important information related to academic expectations and campus resources (e.g., financial aid, student accounts, on-campus living, student health, and other related information.) The major outcome of orientation is for all students to become enrolled satisfactorily by completing the registration process, which is inclusive of creating a fall schedule, financial aid packaging, and payment arrangements.
Q: Must I attend both the “summer” and “fall orientation programs?”
A: Yes. Students are required to attend one of the three summer orientation sessions as well as the fall orientation.
Q: When and how can I sign up for orientation?
A: Once the Enrollment Fee and Summer orientation registration fees are paid, new students will receive an “Orientation Letter,” which will include orientation dates and other pertinent information. The B-CU website also provides important orientation forms.
Q: What is my University ID number?
A: Maintaining a safe campus environment is an important value and practice of B-CU. One manner of safety is the security of a student’s social security number. Each student is given a B-CU “PIN NUMBER” as a personal identifier in lieu of using the social security number.
