If you plan to complete a program offered through Flexible Learning, you need to declare your program. Flexible Learning programs are offered on a course-by-course basis, allowing you to work towards a credential at a pace that’s right for you.

Step 1: Choose your program

Browse part-time programs to find one that fits your goals.

Step 2: Check recommendations for success

BCIT Flexible Learning programs don’t have entrance requirements, but certain courses, skills or knowledge may help you to succeed. Check your program’s Entrance Requirements 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 4: Submit a program declaration

  1. Create or search for your BCIT ID.
  2. Follow the instructions to select and declare your program.
  3. 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.
