BCNET Student Accounts

Each student is assigned a BCNET student account.  The account is automatically created and activated daily at 11 pm on the day that the Admissions office processes your application.  Your account gives you access to many different services.  You will be required to accept a security agreement the first time you login to the myBC student portal.  You can use your account to access the following:
  • Lab and student accessible computers
  • myBC student portal
  • Your student e-mail
  • Wi-fi network
  • Library resources
  • Virtual Campus (D2L)
The account also gives you space on our network to store homework and other digital files required to complete your courses. We refer to this as your P drive. You will be able to use it while working in programs such as Word, Excel, etc. Upon doing a "save as" you will see "yourname$ on 'texas' (P:)". You will also see it when you double click "My Computer". This is where you may save your data and retrieve it from any computer on campus as long as you are logged in using your username.

DO NOT share your Student Account information with others. When something inappropriate happens it will be your responsibility per the security agreement that you accepted. Protect your hard earned data and your reputation!

The username for your student account consists of your first name initial, your whole last name, and the last four digits of your student ID (example: jdoe1234). Your initial temporary password will be it@Brazosport plus you pin number (example: it@Brazosport123456). The e-mail address for your BC Student e-mail account is your (example:  The Admissions office sent you two emails that provided you your  Student ID number and your pin number. You may visit their office to get this information in person.

If you are taking an online class through Virtual Campus (D2L), you will not have access to your course until the first day of class.

Your student account will remain enabled as long as you are a current student at BC.  Your account will be disabled if your have not enrolled in the last three semesters.  Your account will be deleted once we see that you have not been a student for two years. 

The IT department will lock any student account found logged in on an unattended lab computer as this is a security violation. This will require the student to go to the IT Help Desk with their valid Photo ID to get the account unlocked.
