Step 3: Welcome to Online Orientation
Welcome and congratulations on your acceptance to Bergen Community College. We are thrilled that you will be joining our Bulldog family!
In this Online Orientation we’ll tell you about all kinds of opportunities that Bergen offers, both inside and outside the classroom. We’ll also give you the nitty-gritty about things like:
- Academic Programs and Resources
- Student Success and Support Services
- Student Life
- Campus Safety
- Financial Aid and Paying your bill
- And more!
You will need to set up your Portal Account before you can start orientation.
To get started, go to my.backup.bergen.edu and log in to Online Orientation.
After you complete orientation, this is the perfect time to complete your Accuplacer Placement Testing OR submit prerequisite placement testing waiver information (ACT/Compass scores and/or previous college credit). More information about testing can be found on our website: www.backup.bergen.edu/testing.
Our online orientation program is REQUIRED for all new full- and part-time degree-seeking students. After you complete orientation and provide placement information, you’ll be ready to meet with your academic advisor to register!
