Whether you plan to enrol in a part-time program or study on a course-by-course basis, you can find the cost for your part-time course in our online course catalogue.

Fees for part-time programs

The cost of a part-time program is the total of the separate course fees.

Tuition fees appear with information for each course offering, as in the following example:

part time course fee example

In some cases, you may see a slightly higher tuition fee at the Burnaby Campus than the other campuses (Downtown, BMC, ATC) for duplicate course offerings. This is reflective of a Student Association Student Centre Building fee, passed through a 2017 BCIT Student Association referendum.

Additional fees apply for international students. Please review international fees for part-time studies.
