Sponsored Students

What is sponsorship?

Sponsorship refers to a company or agency that agrees to be invoiced for the cost of course materials and/or supplies for a registered student's course.
BCIT Bookstore is not currently accepting new sponsoring companies or agencies.

Payment by credit card

If you are paying by credit card it is not a sponsorship, as you will not be invoiced. Please go to the BCIT Bookstore homepage and order the books online using your credit card. Instructions on how to order online.
