Student Services at Burlington County College goes ‘virtual’. What started as a pilot in the spring of 2010 with E-Academic Advising has evolved to what is known as E-Services.
Beginning fall 2012, students with questions on how to become a student at BCC, financial aid information, and military education and veterans’ services will not have to drive to campus and/or wait for the week day on which a representative will be present at your campus/center of preference.
This is especially convenient for persons with physical mobility concerns, distance education students, students who are located in geographically isolated areas, and/or for students with extenuating circumstances which may make a trip to the college close to impossible.
E-Services are not meant to substitute the rich exchanges of face-to-face meetings with College representatives but will serve to complement them.
E-Services are here. Now what?
- E-Services campus-to-home consultations are held on an appointment basis.
- E-Services campus-to-campus consultations will be provided during normal hours of operation.
- E-Services may be conducted from campus-to-campus communication or from campus-to-student’s home communication.
- Students will be able to use E-Services if they have a home computer with webcam and microphone.
- Students are expected to have a telephone close by during the E-Services appointment.
- Prospective and current students must agree to participate in an E-Services consultation after reading and electronically agreeing with the contents of an Informed Consent Form.
- Since appointment times are limited, students are expected to keep their appointments.
What services are provided through E-Services?
- Recruitment Office: If you are interested in becoming a BCC student, prospective students may receive a wealth of information on how to become a student at BCC while learning about the College’s various academic programs and resources.
