Welcome to Bow Valley College. New Student Orientation is important for all students joining the Bow Valley College community for the first time. Attend The Winter 2020 New Student orientation on Friday, January 3rd, 2020 to:
Get the right tools to succeed in your academic courses and be comfortable with BVC before classes begin
Meet fellow students, your instructors and program chairs
Learn about the many free resources and student services available at BVC
Enjoy a free lunch provided by the Students’ Association
Some programs may have extra activities during the first week of classes, but this orientation is required for all new Bow Valley College learners. If you're an international student you'll need to attend regular orientation and international education orientation.
Check your mybvc.ca email weekly to make sure you are getting important news and messages from the College.
Access your timetable and courses through mybvc.ca under "Registration" and then "Schedule" (this applies to most programs).
Visit the Registrar's Office in South Campus, first floor, to have your picture taken and get your Student ID card. Online and distance learners will also need an ID to use campus services or write exams on campus.
