BCIT suspended declaration into the Computer Systems Certificate,CSC program for all international students on May 30, 2019. This short-term program declaration suspension will provide better course availability for current declared students. Domestic students who complete ASD and ACIS may still declare this program.
Note to students who require a minimum course load to retain eligibility for financial aid or international student status.
Please understand there are no guarantees that all or any Part-time Studies (PTS) courses will be available in any given term.
There is also no guarantee that the minimum required course credits you require can be sustained from term to term in PTS.
Most PTS courses fill quickly so space is not guaranteed and courses may be cancelled before term start if there is insufficient interest.
This may impact both the number of courses a student is able to take in any term, and the time it takes to complete a PTS credential.
As a result, students may not be able to obtain the minimum credits they need or want in each term to continue in the program.
Computing Part-time Studies
was not designed for those attempting to complete this certificate program in a full-time delivery model.
Most Computing Part-time Studies credentials cannot be fast-tracked in less than 2 years due to prerequisites and scheduling.
Please make allowances for this 2 year minimum time requirement in your funding or student visa applications.
