Keeping Track of Explorations Lectures and Arts Events

To earn credit for an event, complete the attendance scan form located at the entrance of most events. To complete the form, you will need a pencil and your BSC ID number (last seven digits) as shown on your BSC ID card.

At the completion of the event, place the scan form in the return box as you exit. In order to receive credit, the form must be submitted at the end of the event. If you wish to turn the form in at a later time, you must get permission from a staff member on duty.

If the attendance form is not available at an approved event, you are required to bring a ticket, program, handout, or some other proof of attendance to the Humanities Center building room 104, within 10 days of attending the event and attach it (no staples) to an attendance scan form that you will fill out. Your signature on the attendance scan form indicates your compliance with the BSC Honor Code.

The Explorations Events Information System (EEIS) can keep you updated on your attendance record. Select the EEIS link in the MyBSC options.

To access the EEIS system, enter your BSC email-id and BSC email password before pressing the Submit button. As an example, if your BSC email address is jksmith@bsc.edu, then you use jksmith as you user-id. To insure the security of your data, please remember to select the Terminate my EEIS session option in order to close your session and exit the system.

You should check your attendance record often. Questions and comments may be sent to Brenda Bailey, bbailey@bsc.edu, who is located in room 104 of the Humanities Center building and whose phone number is 226-7842.
