Classes We Offer

How does the program work?

Compass 2 Campus (C2C) has a 3 or 5 credit introductory course students must enroll in to become a mentor. Our 3 credit course is titled C2C 201, and is offered as an elective. The 5 credit course is called C2C 203 and qualifies the General University Requirement (GUR) for the BCGM section.

After completion of either of our introductory courses students can enroll in four continuing courses called C2C  202 for credit and continue expanding their experience and learning initiated in the introductory course.  Each of the four continuing courses has its own curriculum.
