Before Attending

Before you attend orientation your login information (your Briar Cliff University username, email, and password) will be sent to you via email. Please log in to your student portal (BCYOU!) to make sure you have access to your BCU email and Brightspace. We recommend resetting your password to ensure your account's security. A very important part of Charger Orientation is an online course that is located in Brightspace on your student portal. In this online course, there are forms to complete prior to your arrival for orientation. Use your credentials to log in to your online Charger Orientation course and complete the required forms as soon as possible. This video will show you how to navigate to the course, and how to complete and submit forms in dropbox.

Arrival Instructions

Use the map below to help find your way. When arriving on campus, you will want to use the south main entrance off of Rebecca Street by the Baseball & Softball fields. Please, park in the reserved spaces on the side of the hill along Clare Court or head straight at the top of the hill to lot "L". From there, our team of Peer Academic Leaders (PALs) will help you navigate to the Stark entrance indicated with a star for check-in. Just look for the balloons!
