BC is hosting tours and visits so you can see our beautiful campus. We also invite you to explore our virtual visit options.

Ways to Visit

Personal Visit


You can get one-on-one access to your Admissions Counselor by scheduling a personal visit.  The on-campus visit includes a campus tour and discussion. A virtual campus visit is a Zoom session and virtual campus tour. All visits are held Monday – Friday every hour between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. On-campus visits are by confirmed appointment only. Please request your appointment at least two business days before you plan to join us on campus so that we may confirm your visit.

Campus visitors are required to wear a face covering during the duration of the visit. Visitors should provide their own face covering. In the event a face covering is forgotten or damaged during the visit, a disposable mask will be provided.
