Being a BCIT alum has its perks: Announcing the new BCIT Alumni Perks app

Driving in to Sparkling Hill Resort for your impromptu weekend getaway in your luxury Avis rental car, you realize the temperature is warmer than you’d thought. It’s not a big deal though because you have packed several new outfits from Mark’s and are ready for any type of weather. No, you’re not yet a billionaire with bottomless resources. You’re a BCIT alum with the BCIT Alumni Perks app.

The BCIT Alumni Association is pleased to announce the launch of the BCIT Alumni Perks app. Exclusively for BCIT graduates, the app gives alumni direct access to offers, discounts, news, events, and contests from partner businesses. The best part? It’s completely free to download.

“We’re thrilled to be the first post-secondary in BC to offer an alumni app,” says Leslie Courchesne, executive director of the BCIT Alumni Association. “It’s an excellent way for us to stay in touch with our alumni, and give them special offers right at their fingertips, no matter where they are.”

The app includes a personalized digital BCIT Alumni ID card, replacing the BCIT Alumni Association’s plastic card program. And revenue from the Perks partners funds alumni programs, student scholarships and bursaries, and other donations to BCIT—so you can feel great about using it.

Enjoy the growing list of offers* in the BCIT Alumni Perks app, including:

  • Sparkling Hill Resort & Spa – 40% off the standard rate
