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 virtual Fall 2020 New Student Orientation on Thursday, August 27, 2020 to:
Get the right tools to succeed in your academic courses and be comfortable with BVC before classes begin
Meet fellow students, alumni, your instructors and program chairs
Learn about the many free resources and student services available at BVC
Some programs may have extra activities during the first week of classes, but this orientation is required for all new Bow Valley College students. If you are an international student, you may need to attend regular orientation and international education orientation.
There are two parts of the New Student Orientation (NSO):
1. Join a virtual Live NSO event through Microsoft Teams on August 27, 2020 from 9:00am to 1:30pm
(please join 10 minutes before the event starts) 2. Check out Online Orientation available on D2L Brightspace
(more information on how to access will be included in the NSO guide sent to new students)
New students will receive an invitation to the NSO event in early August.
