External Students

Our Test Centre locations offer testing and invigilation services for students attending other colleges and universities as well as BCIT distance education students requiring a proctored exam outside of their scheduled exam sessions.

On-line registration and payment system

Please select “Register Now” to book your exam on-line through our registration and payment system! Once you have completed the registration portion of your exam booking you will be directed to an external site where you will pay for your exam session on-line via MasterCard or Visa (only) on-line. Note that Visa Debit is not accepted.


Rate change notification: As of June 1, 2019 our invigilation fee for exams that are scheduled for 3 hours or less will be $50 + GST for all days and times including Saturdays.

There is a non-refundable, non-transferable invigilation fee of $50 + GST for exams that are scheduled for 3 hours or less including Saturdays and evenings. If your home institution has allowed a maximum writing time in excess of three hours, an additional charge of $10 per hour (or part thereof) + GST will be added to the invigilation fee.

If you would like your exam to be returned via courier and it is not already paid for by your home institution additional fees will apply based on the courier destination.  Please be aware that this is non-refundable if paid for in error.

Please note:

  • Once the maximum number of students per session is reached, exam dates and/or times will no longer be available.
  • You should have your home institution’s contact information with you before you begin registering for your exam session.
  • Once you have completed the registration portion you will be directed to an external site where you will pay for your exam session on-line via credit card (only). Note that Visa Debit is not accepted.
  • You will then receive a confirmation email with an attachment which will include BCIT’s invigilation consent form. This form will be accepted by most institutions that require a signed proctor or invigilation consent form.  Please do not bring this to your exam session.
  • You are required to bring valid government-issued photo ID to your exam session. A photocopy, photograph, or electronic version of your ID will not be accepted.
  • You are responsible for bringing any items that your home institution has approved to be used for your exam session.
