1) Program Admission Requirements

This program has a two-step admission process. Applicants must meet all entrance requirements and will be accepted on a first qualified basis.

Step 1 for all applicants: Pre-entry assessment by the department

Applicants are required to complete a pre-entry assessment form to have their education assessed by the program area:

  • Complete Part A and B of the Pre-Entry Assessment form [PDF]
  • Save the form as a PDF document and email it as an attachment to bachelor_accounting@bcit.ca
  • A program representative will contact you with instructions regarding next steps. In some cases, you may be asked to attend a program information session or to meet with the program head. You may be required to complete a bridging program or upgrade your marks in specific prerequisite courses before you can apply.

You can apply once you have a completed pre-entry assessment form signed by the program head and have completed any necessary bridging or upgrading courses. The completed pre-entry assessment form must be uploaded to your application to be considered for entry.


Step 2 for all applicants: Meet the following entrance requirements

What if I don’t meet these English requirements?

*BCIT will assess diplomas from other institutions for equivalency on an individual basis. Bridging courses may be required.

**Graduates of the BCIT Finance or Financial Planning diploma programs are not required to complete FMGT 3310 and 4310 as prerequisites for the Bachelor of Accounting.

Applicants who have completed post-secondary studies outside of Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia or New Zealand will require a comprehensive evaluation of their credentials by the International Credential Evaluation Service (ICES). Credential evaluation reports from other Canadian services may be considered. These reports must include course-by-course evaluations and GPA calculations.

All students are required to have access to computer equipment with the capacity to perform the research, computing and processing functions required by each of the courses in the program.
