Degree & Graduate Study Programs

When you choose to earn a degree from BCIT, depending on the program you pick, you can often fit your studies around your schedule. Many of our degree & graduate study programs can be taken on either a full-time or part-time basis. However, some are offered solely as part-time or full-time. Fees are different for full-time and part-time study.

Tuition for Part-Time Studies

As of August 1, 2019, for the 2020-2021 academic year, tuition fees for part-time degree & graduate programs are assessed on a course-by-course basis. If you are completing your degree on a part-time basis, Part-time Studies fees and refund information and policies apply.

Tuition for Full-Time Studies

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.

If you are completing your degree on a full-time basis, full-time studies fees and refund information and policies apply.
Tuition is charged for an entire term for degree & graduate study programs being completed on a full-time basis. See the fee schedule below for complete information.

Notice from BCIT Financial Services

Changes to payment options

Effective August 1, 2019: BCIT will no longer accept cash payments for tuition or rent. BCIT accepts payment from all Canadian banks and credit unions and it is the recommended method for paying your fees.

Further, BCIT will no longer be providing support or assistance with dispute resolution to students who choose to use Plastiq as a third party payment service provider in order to pay for tuition, rent, and other services, and will not be responsible for any fees incurred for such payments or returns.

Payment Options for Paying Tuition


Total tuition cost listed in the full-time tuition schedules does not include the U-Pass BC fee. The U-Pass BC fee will be charged upon registration and is a mandatory fee for all eligible students.

Transfer credit:

Where academic credit has been granted within a full-time studies program a student’s course load will be reduced, however full-time tuition will not be reduced.

Cost shouldn’t be a deciding factor when you’re choosing a school—first and foremost, you’ve chosen BCIT because you want a cutting-edge education that is taught by industry experts. If you need financial assistance when it comes to tuition, contact BCIT’s Student Financial Aid and Awards—we can help guide you to scholarships, bursaries, awards and more.
