Logging in to myBCIT

You need your BCIT ID number and password to log in to myBCIT.

  • The first time you log in, you can use a default password, which myBCIT automatically generates for you.

1.  Go to the myBCIT login page:

2.  Type your BCIT ID in the BCIT ID field.

3.  Type your password in the Password field.

4.  Click Login.


Your BCIT ID is a unique 9-digit identifier that starts with an uppercase “A“, for example: A00123456. Each member of the BCIT community – students, faculty, and staff – has a BCIT ID. The myBCIT system uses your BCIT ID to identify you.

  • Most other BCIT systems also use your BCIT ID as your user id including the Learning Hub, AppsAnywhere, ShareFile, and the myBCIT mobile app.

myBCIT password

Use your default password the first time you log in, or if IT Services resets your password. Note that you will be prompted to change your password the first time you access any of the online services. As your myBCIT account gives access to personal information, if you are not prompted to change your password, you should do so anyway for security purposes, by clicking the Change Password link once you are logged in.

Your default password

myBCIT automatically generates a default password for you when your BCIT ID is created. The default is your date of birth – year, month and day – in the format YYMMDD.

  • For example, if you were born on March 20, 1985, your default password would be 850320.
85 03 20

Secondary default password

If your date of birth is not in the system, myBCIT will generate a secondary default password: the last 6 numbers of your BCIT ID.

Creating your own password

Protect yourself and your personal information – create your own password the first time you log in. Don’t continue using the default password.

Keep in mind that your new password:

  • must be between 8 and 20 characters
  • must contain at least one upper case letter (A to Z), at least one lower case letter (a to z) and at least one number (0 – 9)
  • the only accepted special characters are: $ ! # _ + = : . ~ ^ ( ) { } [ ]
  • cannot be your date of birth.
  • cannot be a previously used password.

Security question

If you forget your password, you can click on the Forgot your password link to reset it. This link will bring you to a page which has two options available to reset it yourself.

  • If you have set up a Security Question and Answer, you can select this option to bring you directly to the Reset Password page.
  • If you do not have a Security Question, but have provided a secondary email address, then you can select this option to have the link to the Reset Password page sent to your secondary email address.
