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. The IT department 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. Resources including the wireless service on the Graceville campus are maintained for the purpose of fulfilling this mission; any other uses are not supported and may be restricted and/or disabled at any time.
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) does not allow IT to support student-owned systems.

Wireless Service (Graceville Campus)
The Baptist College of Florida operates a wireless internet access service, "BCF WiFi" and "BCF WiFi 5G", which is available in most areas of the Graceville Campus. The wireless service is available for use by current students, alumni, faculty, and staff.
*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.
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.
Some further information about this service can be found starting on page 11 of the 'Student Computing Guide' document.
