Distance Education students

BCIT Distance Education students (other than Health Sciences - please see information below) who choose to write their course exams in the BCIT Test Centres will need to schedule your exam session through our online registration system. Learn more.

BCIT Health Sciences Distance Education students

BCIT Health Sciences students who wish to request their complimentary exam session that is offered on our Burnaby Campus should visit BCIT's Distance & Online Learning web site.

BCIT Health Sciences students who wish to write their course exams at one of BCIT's External Test Centres outside their scheduled exam date and time will be required to pay a non-refundable, non-transferable invigilation fee.

*Please note that alternate exam session scheduling is not available to students studying in Cardiac Science programs.

To register for your exam session you must:

  1. First, contact your Program Assistant [PDF] for approval to write outside of the scheduled exam session. This will only be done if there is an unavoidable conflict with your work obligations and it is within the time period specified in your course syllabus or by your program area.
  2. If you are given approval, you will then need to schedule your exam through BCIT's External Test Centre online registration system, where you will be able to select the location, date, and time of your exam as well as pay for your exam fee via MasterCard or Visa (only) on-line.
  3. Exam fees are $50 for exams up to 3 hours including Saturdays and evenings.  A fee of $10 per hour or or part thereof will be charged for exams that have a writing time of more than 3 hours.
  4. Please be aware that, if you book and pay for your exam through the External Test Centre in error, you will not be able to change the date and/or time nor be refunded the exam fee that you paid as all fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
  5. You will then receive an email confirmation that includes your proctor information, exam course, exam title, location, date and time of your exam.
  6. Upon receipt, immediately forward the confirmation email to your Program Assistant.
  7. Your Program Assistant will then confirm the exam information and Proctor guidelines with BCIT's External Test Centre.

Exams will not be released:
