We are excited to announce the launch our new BCIT Alumni Perks program—which will replace the BCIT Alumni Card—in January 2020. In the meantime, we are no longer accepting sign-ups for the BCIT Alumni Card.
The BCIT Alumni Perks program is an app that will give BCIT alumni access to all the same great benefits (discounted access to BCIT Recreation Services [gym], access to the BCIT Library, and a one-time $50 credit towards a BCIT Part-time Studies course) of the former BCIT Alumni Card PLUS exclusive offers, discounts, event tickets, contests, etc. from our partner businesses.
