Apply to program

A formal application to the program is not required prior to registration. Interested students can go ahead and register for courses from the program matrix.

If a course has one or more prerequisites, you are responsible for ensuring that you have either successfully completed the prerequisite course, or have the equivalent skills and knowledge, prior to registration.

If you believe that you have taken an equivalent course at a different post-secondary institution, you can apply for transfer credit by submitting your official transcript and detailed course outline.

Once you have completed two or three courses, please declare your intended program of study.

Program declaration

Declaring your Part-time Studies program ensures that BCIT is aware of your intent to complete a program as it is currently outlined and also provides you the opportunity to apply for transfer credit.
