BCIT's Minimum Full-Time Course Load Requirements

When applying for financial assistance, it's important to understand the difference between "minimum full-time course-load" (60%) and "full-time course load" (100%).

Note: Students are advised to contact our office before applying for course credit exemption. Being granted exemption will reduce the number of registered credits, which could cause you to fall below the minimum 60%.

 

This table outlines BCIT's "minimum full-time course load" (60%) requirements:

No. of actual weeks* in term Minimum credits required
