Spotlight FAQs

The Spotlight Instruction Series (SIS) provides additional support outside of normal class time to help you achieve success.

Students in participating SIS courses attend topic-based, active-learning sessions throughout the semester. SIS sessions, led by experienced BCTC faculty, have both online and on-campus offerings. Your course syllabus provides specific details about  how many sessions are required and how SIS can impact your course grade.

While there are sessions specific to certain courses (such as Math or Biology), part of the SIS will be the FYE 105 - Student Success Track. The workshops in the Student Success Track are open to   all students at BCTC and provide information and support on more general topics such as financial aid, career resources, test-taking skills, time management, and more!

Many instructors will require you to attend spotlight sessions throughout the semester as part of your grade. Please check your syllabus to see if this is a requirement for your class.
