COVID-19 Update for Employees: May 8

Mon May 11, 2020 at 04:37 PM


Although the College is restarting Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses in May to finish the spring semester, the college remains in altered operations. Limited services are available on campus. All services are available through our remote, altered operations including student services and academic support. BC staff and faculty, where possible, will continue to work remotely. Only those employees with proper supervisor and the Emergency Policy Group approval may return to work on campus at this time.


We are excited to announce Brazosport College will hold a virtual commencement celebration on Saturday, June 13, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.! Brazosport College has hired VEGO Pictures to produce this year’s virtual commencement. VEGO Pictures is a full-service digital production and marketing company from Los Angeles, CA with experience on American Idol, Coachella, The X Factor USA, Golden Globe Awards, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Ellen’s Game of Games and many more.

All students earning certificates and degrees at the end of the Spring 2020 semester will be celebrated and featured during our virtual ceremony!

As many already know, the College had to postpone our May 9 in-person commencement ceremonies due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we know how important commencement is to our graduates and wanted to make sure we’re still able to celebrate this year. Although this year is a virtual ceremony, members of the class of 2020 can participate in next year’s in-person commencement.

The virtual ceremony will be held on the College’s website with more details to follow. Members of the 2020 class, their friends, families, and BC Gators everywhere are invited to watch online and make this the largest BC commencement ever!

Brazosport College President Millicent Valek and the college administration is ready to recognize and confer your degrees and are excited to be able to celebrate this milestone with all our 2020 graduates.


Please drop off any BC Library items that were due during the spring semester to the book drop located outside of the G-wing in front of the main building. You will see the large, metal container next to the automatic doors to the right of the entrance to the main building. Items need to be returned to that book drop by Friday, May 15 unless you are in a delayed workforce course, in which case the deadline is June 15.


Please join Dr. Valek for one of her two college update sessions via Zoom next week! During her sessions, Dr. Valek will be addressing many key points as the college moves forward in altered operations and will provide updates as students are set to return May 18 to complete their Spring courses. She will also be taking questions in the chat at the end of the session and is looking forward to interacting with everyone online.

Sessions scheduled for Thursday, May 14:

10 a.m.

2 p.m.
