BPCC COVID-19 Frequently asked questions
Yes! The campus is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM until 4:30 PM. All departments are back on campus and ready to serve students.
It is best to access Canvas from the BPCC homepage or the Canvas Student app. On the BPCC homepage, click on the MyBPCC icon in the top right (next to LoLA and Email). It is important for students to make sure they have the most current app (which was updated in December). Also, students need to make sure and download Canvas Student and not Canvas Teacher. The app is available anywhere apps are purchased, though the Canvas Student App is free. Note: Some students attempt to access Canvas from inside of LoLA. This does not take them to their myBPCC login page, but rather to Instructure.com. This will only lead them to additional logins and typically to frustration. Thus, it is best to use the BPCC homepage or the Canvas Student app.
We want you to have all of the resources you need to be successful. If you are in a class that had to be transitioned to online but you do not have a computer, it is important that you reach out to your instructor as soon as possible. Your instructor may be able to direct you to resources or provide guidance as to how you can complete your coursework.

Their website is located at https://www.bpcc.edu/learningcommons/index and provides students access to electronic resources for assignments.Their contact information gives students an email address, phone number, and live chat to request assistance from a library faculty or staff member.
We have had to shift some things, but our offices are innovating and working diligently to support remote students with online tutoring. Various areas will be offering services:
- Math: A Developmental Math CANVAS group is being developed, and all Math 098 students will be added so they will have that resource available to them. The Student Exam Center will not be available.
- Writing Services: The online Writing Lab will continue to function. The online Writing Lab provides feedback on submitted essays or written documents. In the Writing Lab Canvas course, there are several resources that can be accessed by students.
- Tutoring Center: The Tutoring Center is currently offering online tutoring in math, English, basic biology, and study skills. Students can schedule an appointment with a tutor through the following link: https://bpcc.libcal.com/appointments
