Transcripts and supporting documents must be submitted to show you meet the requirements identified by your chosen program.
If you are applying to a diploma of technology or trade program, you may submit photocopies of your transcripts. However BCIT reserves the right to request official documents at any time.
If you are applying for advanced placement or to a degree program, you must submit official transcripts.
Submit your final official transcripts showing courses taken, marks received and successful secondary school graduation.
Submit all official secondary and post-secondary transcripts. If you intend to apply for transfer credit for any courses within your program, only official transcripts will be accepted; photocopies are not valid.
If you are attending or planning to attend courses that are entrance requirements for your chosen program, you must include proof of registration with your application. Keep the Admissions department informed of your progress by sending interim transcripts or an official note from your instructor. Upon completing the courses, arrange to have your official transcripts sent to the Admissions office.
If your education was completed in another country, submit secondary and post-secondary transcripts from the schools you attended. Official English translations must accompany documents that are in another language. Costs of translations into English are your responsibility.
If your transcripts were issued from sources outside Canada are irreplaceable and you need to get your originals back from BCIT, you may request these documents be returned to you. Submit a stamped, self-addressed envelope along with your request.
Applicants provide documents at their own expense. Documents will not be returned and will become the property of BCIT.
Many programs require additional information such as a resumé, letter of intent, or a copy of your driver's license. Check your program page to see if your program has additional requirements.
When applying in person, bring official government documents indicating permanent resident status or a study permit (if available). BCIT will copy original documents. If you are applying from outside the Lower Mainland, submit a copy of your documents to the Admissions Office (do not submit original documents).
Where transcripts and other official documentation are not in English, the original documents must be accompanied by English translations and notarized at your expense.
If you apply online, submit your supporting documents by mail, fax or in person.
If you apply by mail, fax or in person, ensure your supporting documents accompany your application form.
