Updates & Notices
Important Health & Safety Update: For the safety of our students and staff, BCIT is not accepting in-person payments, mailed cheques and money orders at this time. For more information, please phone Student Information and Enrolment Services at 604-434-1610.
Please note: BCIT does not accept credit card or cash payments for tuition or rent.
1. Online banking (bill payment)
BCIT accepts payment from Canadian banks and credit unions in Canadian funds and it is the recommended method for paying your fees. Payments can be made quickly and at your convenience through your bank’s online services using your home computer, tablet or smartphone.
Canadian financial institutions have two payment options: Tuition and Rent. Find the bill payments section on your institutions’ website and add “BCIT – Tuition Payments” as a PAYEE to pay for your courses. DO NOT use the rent option to pay for tuition as this could result in you being dropped from courses for non-payment. Only add “BCIT – Rent Payments” as a PAYEE to pay for any HOUSING fees. Your nine (9) digit student ID (A########) is your account number. If the student ID is not present, the funds will be returned to your financial institution.
Please note there may be a delay of up to 48 hours from when you make your payment to when the payment reaches BCIT, so ensure you schedule sufficient time before your payment deadline. You can view your BCIT receipt in your myBCIT account to confirm payment has been received by BCIT. View instructions on how to review a receipt.
2. HigherEd Points
BCIT students can now fund their school fees by converting Aeroplan Miles through HigherEdPoints.com. 35,000 Aeroplan Miles can be converted into $250 worth of credits at BCIT.
Students can also convert the Aeroplan Miles of family members and friends to help pay for school. Anyone can donate their points to an individual student, or directly to BCIT for students in need.
For more information and to set up an account, please visit the Higher Education Points website.
These payments can be mailed to:
