Flexible Learning Information


As a Flexible Learning student, you receive the School of Health Sciences Student Handbook after registration. The Student Handbook provides you with a planner/scheduler plus a host of important and interesting information.

Examination dates and procedures

Take immediate note of the number of exams in your course and the suggested dates for writing them. Decide when, where and how you will write your exam. You must inform BCIT by completing a Request to Write Examination at BCIT form if you wish to write at the Burnaby Campus or a Request to Write Examination Off-Campus form if you wish to write using a professional as a proctor at the location of your choice.

You must complete all examinations within the allotted term dates. BCIT does not return your examinations to you after marking.

Online Access

For all of our online courses, BCIT provides access only from the start date of the course.

Course Payment

You may pay for your course online or by phone, fax, or credit card. You must pay for your course at the time of registration. There are six ways to pay for a course:

  • Cash or Interac, (in person only)
  • Cheques and money orders
  • Letter of authorization from employer to be invoiced by BCIT
  • Telephone payments: 604-432-8682

If your employer is paying your course fees, the fees must be paid at the time of registration. Include a letter, detailing invoicing information, with your registration form. Unfortunately, BCIT does not accept telephone or Internet registrations when such a letter is being used for payment purposes.

BCIT reserves the right to change prices and course availability without notice.


How much of a refund will I receive? How do I apply for a refund?
