Early College students,

Congratulations! You have elected to enroll in an online, college-level course. Each course is different in its requirements involving theory, application, depth of reflection, and research. Occasionally, the title of a course has been chosen to broadly describe the course content. As an Early College student, you may need to communicate with the instructor to discuss your ability to meet the course’s requirements within the first two days of the course, within the drop/add period. This allows you time to select another option if you believe the course requirements are beyond your current level of learning.

Your grades will be final and appear on your Bluefield College transcript, so it is important that you do your best.

If you have a learning disability, it is important that you communicate that with our Associate Director of Academic Support, Mr. Wayne Pelts, prior to your classes starting. Mr. Pelts will need documentation in order to offer any accommodations. You may reach Mr. Pelts at wpelts@bluefield.edu.

An advisor will contact you prior to each enrollment period to discuss course options and will assist you in enrolling in your online classes. Remember we are here to support you and help you be successful.
