 How to use it

  • Read your acceptance letter and find your BC student Identification Number (e.g., 950-11-1111). Your PIN is your birth date (e.g., December 25, 1990 = 12/25/90).
  • Create a BC student NetID and student e-mail address at
  • Use FireFox or Chrome browser and go to and use your NetID and PIN to log on to the pre-arrival online orientation program.
  • Choose “COLLEGE ORIENTATION” course and translation (if available) and follow the guides.
  • At the end of each module pass a quiz to move on to the next module.
  • If you have trouble accessing the site, please contact Diem O’Rourke at or
