It is your responsibility to provide that documentation to the Registrar before registration.

Moodle accounts are set up approximately 48 hours after you register for an online, hybrid, or web-based course. All students who complete priority or early registration will receive a letter and an email with instructions. If you still cannot access your online courses by the end of the first day of classes, please contact the BRCC Help Desk at (828) 694-1895.

Student Email

You will need to first set up your WebAdvisor, then Moodle account, wait 15 minutes, then set up your BRCC student email, also known as "webmail". Actually, it is a "Google Apps for Education" account that gives you not only email, but storage on Google Drive, a calendar, and the Google version of MS Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.

How to Begin Class

  • Wait until the classes are scheduled to start before you attempt to log in to your course.
  • Instructors are required to have their courses available by the second day of the drop/add period.
  • Do not call until after that date with problems concerning logging in to your course(s).
  • E-mail your instructor(s) to let them know that you have activated your BRCC WebMail Account and let them know your accounts are set up and that you are looking forward to the course(s). "TBA" on your schedule does not mean you should wait to login.
  • If you have never taken an online course in Moodle, we strongly urge you to participate in a face-to-face orientation, or read the tutorials in the Moodle Online Orientation.
