Getting Started With This Course


Orientation for this course is REQUIRED.
Failure to participate in a REQUIRED orientation, as specified below, may jeopardize your grade.


Your instructor will hold the orientation online using self-paced tools, email and/or discussions. (A self-paced orientation does NOT mean the entire course is self-paced.) You should plan to access your online course no later than the first day of the session. Failure to do so may jeopardize your grade.

Other Orientation Information
The instructor will send information about the course and how to register at MyLab & Mastering to BCCC student email accounts one week before the beginning of the course. All students are expected to follow the steps in the 'Getting Started' email attachment to successfully register at MyLab & Mastering in the first week of the course.

A face-to-face or phone orientation can be arranged for any student who wishes to meet with the instructor

Accessing Your Course

MyLab / Mastering

Your course is using MyLab / Mastering by Pearson, which requires the purchase of an access code. This code is usually packaged with a new textbook, but may also be purchased separately from the MyLab / Mastering website if it is not included with your book.

Information about MyLab / Mastering can be found at Please check the Systems Requirements page to verify your computer compatibility.

Your instructor will provide an additional course code you will need to access your specific course.

Purchasing Your Books and Other Course Materials

While you may purchase your books and other course materials from the provider of your choice (using the ISBN number available through the course's academic department where applicable to ensure the correct version), both the campus bookstore and our online bookstore, guarantee that they stock the correct version for your course.

Approximately 3 weeks prior to the start of the session you can use the link below to see the list of books that have been selected by your instructor. If you have any questions about the course materials listed, please contact your instructor or the academic department directly.

Other Information about the Course

Students may purchase the textbook, packaged with the required access code for MyLab & Mastering, from the bookstore or may purchase just the access code online and use the online version of the textbook. It is only slightly more expensive to purchase the textbook packaged with the required access code from the bookstore.

Students will be required to take 2 online tests and a final exam at testing centers on any of the BCCC campuses. Options for other testing locations require the approval of the instructor. Please note: All tests and the final exam must be taken in a proctored environment. In addition students are required to take 6 online quizzes, which do not have to be taken at a testing center. This course follows an assigned schedule and is not a self-paced course.
