Brazosport College's Virtual Campus is the portal used to access registered online courses, live support services, and resources. It is also the main access point to logging into our online learning management system (LMS), Desire2Learn (D2L).  Once logged into the Virtual Campus, students can participant in a wide variety of academic activities including viewing syllabi, participating in class discussions, turning in assignments, and submitting quizzes. 

Online courses at Brazosport College adhere to the same requirements, policies, and procedures as on campus classes. This includes, but is not limited to, following the same Academic Calendar, guidelines and procedures described in the Student Guide, grading policies, and refund policies.
