Payment Options at BCIT

BCIT offers a variety of convenient payment options for tuition and related student fees:

Please note: BCIT does not accept credit card or cash payments for tuition or rent.

Domestic Students

  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
