Fees :: Apprenticeship Training

Please note the Payment Options for BCIT.

With hands-on apprenticeship training at BCIT, you can offset tuition and related fees because you're learning while you're working.


Please note: Each year BC post-secondary institutions may raise tuition by 2 per cent. In April each year, BCIT posts the new rates that take effect on August 1. If you pay your tuition prior to April using the old rates, you are required to pay the difference within 10 business days from the start of your program.

Apprenticeship program fees include Student Association, BCIT ID card, Student Services and building fees. For details, download our apprentice tuition schedule.
