Forwarding your myBCIT Email


Forwarding myBCIT email is best effort due to stricter regulations from Google, Yahoo, and other mail providers to combat spam and phishing. Email forwarding is not recommended and may cause interruptions in service due to the external regulations.

If you don’t check your myBCIT email regularly or if you prefer to use another email address, you can set your myBCIT mailbox to forward all email to another address by following these steps.
