Further to BCIT’s March 18 transition to primarily online delivery to protect our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, all ongoing and new courses and programs will be delivered in a primarily online format through the summer semester. Should the COVID-19 situation improve, BCIT may gradually supplement our remote classes with field, lab, and shop sessions. The situation will be evaluated based on guidelines from the Provincial Health Officer, augmented by BCIT’s own Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) department. Applications are still open for many programs – please visit Admission during COVID-19 to learn how BCIT Admissions is supporting applicants and to answer admissions-related questions.

Full-time technology programs

The majority of our full-time technology courses began online delivery on March 18.

Part-time studies

To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. Summer and fall Part-time Studies classes are commencing with learning delivered in an online format.

Technical and trades programming

Our trades, technical, and apprenticeship teams have done a thorough evaluation across the wide variety of the courses we offer in these areas. In some cases, we have been able to transition online. Others will require a combination of online and in-person learning to deliver required content. In a few cases, we will be rescheduling offerings where necessary.

Students in other types of programs who are uncertain of their program delivery method should please contact their instructor directly.
