Our goal is to serve BCIT Alumni as effectively and conveniently as possible.

In order to provide a high level of service, to maintain your connection with your alma mater, to provide you with lifelong learning opportunities, and to provide you with benefits and services as a graduate of BCIT, we need to know who you are and understand your interests. To do this, we request that you provide and keep us up to date with certain personal information.

We understand the need to protect your personal privacy and the security of personal information under the custody of BCIT and its affiliates is a very high priority.

BCIT Alumni Relations, The BCIT Foundation and the BCIT Alumni Association routinely contact alumni to offer BCIT programs and services, inform BCIT graduates about alumni events, administer elections of the Alumni Association, facilitate alumni surveys and research, and conduct fundraising appeals.

The BCIT Alumni Relations and the BCIT Alumni Association will also send to BCIT alumni marketing information about commercial products and services upon the consent of BCIT graduates.
