Information Technology

Welcome to The Baptist College of Florida!

The Baptist College of Florida provides Information Systems to meet operational, financial, and academic needs. These resources are valuable, and their abuse can have a far-reaching negative impact. IT is responsible for balancing the need for security with practical application.

The mission statement for the Information Technology (IT) department includes the charge to facilitate computing services that allow BCF to accomplish its mission of educating and training ministers and other religious workers. As such, it may not be appropriate to support all the technology services that are available in a home use environment on the Graceville campus.

Support for Personally Owned Hardware and Software

IT does not provide support for systems owned by individuals. The Baptist College of Florida’s Computer and Information Systems Policy (CISP) Link will open in a new window does not allow IT to support student-owned systems.

Wireless internet service on the Graceville campus

The Baptist College of Florida operates a wireless internet access service, available throughout most areas of the Graceville Campus. The wireless service is available for use by current students, alumni, faculty, and staff. (See note below)

To use the service, an 802.11b/g (Wi-Fi) card or device is required. Most notebooks, PDAs, handheld PCs, and some desktop computers come with wireless connectivity. If one does not come with a wireless card, usually an 802.11b/g wireless adapter can be added. Contact your hardware manufacturer for more details about your specific device.

*Please Note: Your network logon account will be created at the beginning of the first semester for which you are admitted or re-admitted. It will remain active as long as you remain a current BCF student not subject to the BCF readmissions policy.

Further information about this service is contained in the 'Student Computing Guide (Graceville)' document.
