Independent contractor and affiliate accounts are for individuals who are not employees but have an ongoing relationship with BCIT and require access to institute computing systems and services.

Independent contractor accounts must be sponsored and requested by a BCIT employee with appropriate business justification and approval. These accounts can be provisioned for up to one year and must be renewed. It is the responsibility of the sponsoring school or department to notify IT Services when the account or access is no longer required and should be de-provisioned.
