·         Parking Lot E, located behind the Fine Arts Wing and adjacent to Harper Hall is designated for faculty and staff parking. Faculty and staff cannot park anywhere else on the main campus – not in student parking or on the grass.  

Effective immediately, Public Safety will begin enforcing parking permit violations. So, be sure to park your vehicle in the designated parking lot which corresponds with your parking hangtag. Vehicles displaying a valid handicapped parking permit or Maryland handicapped registration may park in any marked handicapped space. 

After 4 p.m., all lots are open parking for students, faculty and staff. Persons parking without regard to campus parking regulations will be subject to a fine. Thank you for your cooperation.

Alert Your Students: Low-Cost Quality Child Care Available

The Clarence W. Blount Child Development Center has received the Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) grant, which allows for an expansion of services. The College will now be able to offer infant-toddler school and evening school. The CCAMPIS grant is designed to provide financial assistance to those who have received the Pell grant eligible or Pell grant recipient families who are unable to afford the full cost of quality child care.

 

Eligible families can apply for the CCAMPIS scholarship beginning in 2014. To receive assistance through this program, students must:

 

  • Be a Pell-eligible student-parent
  • Be enrolled for at least six credits
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 (must remain in good academic standing for each semester in which the child care grant is awarded)
  • Attend workshop trainings and participate in survey and evaluation activities

 

Only one childcare grant will be awarded per family. Students receiving child care subsidy from the State of Maryland are not eligible for participation in the grant program.

 

For more information, contact Ms. Jinaki Kambui, director of the Clarence Blount Child Development Center at 410-462-7460.

 


 

IT Services Alert: Watch Out for Spam Emails

Be cautious when checking your College email – spammers have the capability to title spam emails to look as if they come from BCCC. How can you tell if you have a spam email in your inbox? Look at the address – if it has a title relevant to the College but isn’t sent from a BCCC email account, it’s probably spam.

 

IT Services will never ask for your password, especially via email, as that is a security violation. Our standard procedure is to reset your password to your previous password or give you an initial password via phone.
