Having shared a few important highlights of the college, it is important to address the current environment in which we are operating. Undoubtedly COVID-19 has been a disrupter for you as it has been for everyone locally, nationally, and internationally. Nevertheless, you have persisted and demonstrated commitment to your educational advancement and BBUC sincerely commends you. As you begin your academic journey with us, you will pleasantly realize that your confidence in choosing us is well placed. We are extremely proud of our secure and robust delivery models comprising:

  • Our BBUCONLINE Learning Management System (LMS) through which both synchronous and Asynchronous programs are delivered.
  • The MOODLE online LMS, and naturally,
  • ZOOM, Google Meet, as well as other 2.0 web tools.

These content-delivery tools were deliberately chosen in line with our mission of ensuring that all our programs are easily and conveniently accessible to students, regardless of degree choice, time, or location, and to facilitate successful academic achievement. In addition, our immediate concern for the safety and security of everyone during this Pandemic period was paramount in our choice of these specific delivery modalities.

To help meet the above goals, our user-friendly website is arranged to provide you with links and directories for all the administrative and program resources necessary for taking your first step. These include: Advising, Appointments, Chat in real time, Document submission, Library, Online Application, Rapid Registration Services Portal, Registration, and Science Portal. In addition, our dedicated administrative staff will be available and ready to assist you should it be necessary.
