Student Resources

If you are looking to fast-track a credential, please consider our Full-time 2 year programs.

Most Computing Part-time Associate Certificates cannot be completed in less than two (2) years.

Please note: It is not possible for students to attempt a full-time course load via PTS courses due to schedules and prerequisites.

Part-time Studies is course by course registration and most Computing PTS credentials require at least two (2) years to complete.

Do not assume that by completing any part-time equivalent COMP courses that you will be accepted into the full-time programs.

You must work with the Program Heads in advance for any COMP course planning and prior approval if you plan to apply to full-time.

Full-time admissions are very competitive and there is currently a wait list with no guarantee of acceptance.

We have created the Computing Part-time Studies Student Guide [PDF] help you become successful in BCIT Computing courses and programs.

It is each student's responsibility to read this guide and to be familiar with our department rules and expectations.


Your PTS instructor is your first point of contact for any COMP course related questions.

If you have registration related issues for COMP PTS courses please email:

All COMP course schedules with details for locations, tuition, books and prerequisites are online.

For any other questions or concerns email your Program Assistant.

For academic planning send an email with your BCIT Student Number and brief details.

I am not able to respond to telephone calls without first receiving an email.

Please do not telephone or drop in without a prior appointment.

Thank you in advance,
