Changing Faculty & Staff myBCIT Password

When your account is initially created, your default myBCIT password is set to either your date of birth (in the format YYMMDD) or to the last six characters of your BCIT ID card. It is easy for another person to discover your date of birth or BCIT ID, so you must change your password as soon as possible to something secret and only known by you.

Did you know: BCIT passwords must not be the same as any non-BCIT accounts or services (such as personal ISP accounts, free online email accounts, instant messaging accounts, or other online services). (BCIT Policy 3502)

How to change your myBCIT password

  1. Log in to myBCIT.
  2. On the right hand side, under Online Self Service, click Change your Password.
  3. Enter your old password (i.e., the password you just used to log in).
  4. Enter a new password known only to you.
    Note: Password must be between 8 and 20 characters, must contain a minimum of one upper case letter AND one lower case letter AND one number. Optional: For additional security, you may include special characters, the only accepted special characters are: $ ! # _ + = : . ~ ^ ( ) { } [ ]
  5. Re-enter the new password.
  6. Click Change Password.

Log out of myBCIT and wait five minutes, then log back into myBCIT using the new password.

Please note: Your new password will be used to access all BCIT systems that require your BCIT ID as a username (except for Banner 8 and Millennium).
