TUITION FEE DEFERRAL

BCIT policy requires a newly accepted full-time student to pay tuition fees in full 60 days before the first
day of classes. A student accepted less than 60 days before the first day of classes is required to pay tuition
fees in full upon acceptance. Part-time students must pay in full upon registration.

A tuition fee deferral is a request to extend your tuition fee payment due date. Note that if your request is
approved, the fees must still be paid, but at a later date. Tuition fee deferrals are only approved for those
eligible applicants as defined below.
