Tuition increases

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. Please see the Ministry of Advanced Education’s Tuition Limit Policy for more information.

Paying for apprenticeship training

Once you register and pay your $200.00 commitment fee, BCIT will reserve your seat in your apprentice training program. Your commitment fee can be paid directly to BCIT by credit card. The balance of your tuition is due, in full, 60 days before the start of your program.

Although you can pay your $200 deposit with a credit card, the remaining balance must be paid using one of the following methods:

  1. Debit card (in person only)
  2. Cheque or money order payable to BCIT – please include your BCIT ID (student number)
  3. Online banking (bill payment) through your financial institution using BCIT – Tuition as the payee

If paying by online banking, please use your BCIT ID (student number) as your account number. Please allow up to 3 business days for online bill payments to be posted to your account.

Note: If your employer is sponsoring your training costs, have your employer contact BCIT Apprentice Services.
