Charging and Admission

BCR events are open to the entire University community and most are offered free of charge. Some events, however, may require an admission fee for students and community members.

Attendance Taking

Attend events on campus with the BCR designation and register your attendance using a smart device. During a designated BCR event, event hosts will post a unique QR code or URL for students to register their attendance using their personal smart device. Registering attendance is timed and unique to each event. Students are expected to attend the entire event for credit.

This process is new for Fall 2020 and is under review during a time when there is a reduction in the number of events scheduled on campus.
