Fee Waiver For BCIT Courses

One of the benefits of joining BCIT is that most courses we offer are available free of charge to employees, as long as you meet the following criteria:

Eligibility

All employees of BCIT are eligible for fee waiver courses, with the following exceptions:

Retirees may audit courses at no cost.

Registering

If you're eligible, please follow this process:

  1. Please complete all information requested in Section I and Section II of the Tuition Fee Waiver form [PDF, 455 KB].
    • You are now required to provide the course details before the fee waiver will be signed by Human Resources.
    • Only check the job related box if the course is work or business related
    • Check Programs & Courses for part-time course schedules.
  2. Submit the completed form to the reception desk in the Human Resources office for signature. If you are not on campus, you may fax the form to (604)434-8462.
  3. Take the completed form to Registration and register for the course. You will receive an acknowledgement form from the Registrar's Office verifying that the course is proceeding and that you are officially registered for the course.

If you are a BCIT Retiree, in addition to the process above, please ensure that Human Resources identifies you as a Retiree on your fee waiver form. At the start of the first class, inform the Instructor that you are a retiree and are auditing the course (a final grade will not be issued).

Course cancellations

Should the course not proceed, you will be contacted by either the Registrar's Office or the department hosting the course. You may be given the option of transferring into another course.
