BCIT Part-time Studies programs are offered on a course-by-course basis, allowing you to work towards a credential at a pace that’s right for you.
If you plan to complete one of the many programs offered through Part-time Studies, you need to declare your program.
Step 1: Choose your program
Browse our Part-time Studies programs to find a program that fits your goals.
Before declaring, you may want to complete a few courses to make sure the program meets your expectations.
Step 2: Check recommendations for success
BCIT Part-time Studies programs don’t have entrance requirements, but certain courses, skills or knowledge may help you to succeed. Check your program’s Program Entry page to see what’s recommended.
If your program doesn't specify a level of English, two years of education in English in an English-speaking country and English 12 are strongly recommended.
Step 3: Review the course prerequisites
Many courses have prerequisites listed in the course description. Visit your program’s Courses page to review course prerequisites.
Before registering in a course, it is your responsibility to ensure you have completed the prerequisites or their equivalents.
Step 4: Submit a program declaration
Declare your Part-time Studies program online using the BCIT Secure Information System:
- Create or search for your BCIT ID.
- Follow the instructions to select and declare your program.
- Pay the declaration fee online by Visa, MasterCard, or American Express.
Step 5: Receive notification
Upon approval, a program plan will be sent to you confirming your program of study. Program declaration requests take approximately eight weeks to process.
