BCIT offers amenities, services and opportunities to help you get settled as a student. We're pleased to help all BCIT Aboriginal students with:
Questions about programs and courses? We can help find answers for you and connect you with Program Advising.
Transitioning into the first year at BCIT can be challenging. Connect with a senior student mentor and make your BCIT experience a successful one.
Questions about how to apply for band funding? Need clarification on the steps to take? We can help.
Looking for a place to live while you study at BCIT? We offer on-campus housing on the Burnaby Campus and a comprehensive listing of off-campus accommodation.
New to BCIT? Sign up for campus orientations that take place on September 6, 2016
Need to review concepts or require immediate feedback? Your fellow students at BCIT — peers who have achieved superior grades in their previous terms and understand the pressures and challenges of being a BCIT student — can help.
