BC students should check the Course Information and Schedule for the most up-to-date status of summer courses before submitting a course enrollment request.
We will process registration requests in the order in which they are received. Courses are subject to availability and a request for a course does NOT guarantee you will be enrolled in that course. You will be notified by Student Services if your choice is no longer available.
All course drops MUST be processed by the Summer Session office using this form:

Asynchronous Online Learning
All online courses are offered this summer via an asynchronous model. Asynchronous online learning does not use weekly live Zoom meetings as the primary source of instruction. Your “classroom” is in Canvas. Each week has its own module that contains discussion boards, instructor lectures, and other video resources, readings, quizzes, with a variety of assignments and projects designed by your professor.
While you do not have a requirement to be online at a certain time each week, it is expected that you will log on at least four or five times per week to read and listen to new material, engage in asynchronous discussions with classmates, participate in various activities and complete assignments that your profoessor has curated for your learning. You will have specific dates when your assignments are due. Your professor’s expectations of what you need to do and when it will be due are detailed in the online syllabus which you will be able to access when you log in to your Canvas course on the first day of class.
If you have any questions about the course content or what is expected of you, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR INSTRUCTOR for clarification as soon as possible.
