Upon arrival at the college, students must present their visa and passport bio page to the International Student Advisor. International students must purchase health insurance through the college prior to registering for courses at BCTC. International students are responsible for maintaining their legal status while enrolled at BCTC. For further information about maintaining legal status including employment options, see the International Student Advisor.
International Student Advisor
International students are encouraged to meet with the Multicultural/International Student Advisor for immigration and visa regulation advising. Other services provided are aimed at supporting the retention of culturally diverse students in the college from the enrollment stage through to the graduation stage.
