Card Holder’s Agreement

The BCIT ID card is the mandated identity, access, and library card for the five permanent campuses:

  • Burnaby campus
  • Downtown campus, Seymour Street, Vancouver
  • Marine campus in North Vancouver
  • Aerospace and Technology campus in Richmond
  • Annacis Island campus in Delta

Card fee

$2.50 per term is assessed at your point of registration if you are enrolled in a class, course, or program of study that comprises a minimum of 30 contact hours. BCIT’s schedule has three terms — Fall, Winter, Spring/Summer — so the highest fee you’ll pay is $7.50 per year.

When your fees are in effect, your card is valid for campus services such as the Library or gym, but outside of the paid enrolment period it is not.
