Frequently Asked Questions

Can I submit a screenshot of enrollment records or the letter of acceptance instead of the proof of enrollment letter?

No, please submit an official proof/confirmation of enrollment letter from your institution that states the current term in which you are enrolled. Please note that we do not accept your tuition payment record, unofficial transcripts, letters of acceptance, and unofficial documents that show your currently enrolled courses. We accept the official confirmation of enrollment or enrollment verification letter that’s issued by your institution with a signature from who has the authority to sign the letter (e.g., the registrar). The letter must state that you are currently enrolled in the program by indicating the current term or the current academic year.

How long does the application process take?

It typically takes between 2 to 4 weeks for your application to be processed and reviewed, but please note that it may take up to 4 weeks depending on the volume of applications received.

When can I purchase the Professional Liability Insurance and when is the effective date?

You will be able to purchase the insurance as soon as you become a BCACC student member. The insurance will be effective as soon as you register for the new policy if there aren’t any issues.

When and How do I pay for the student membership fee?

Once your application is reviewed and approved, BCACC will send you an invoice email with a link where you can pay online. We do not accept cheques or cash at this time.

When does my student membership start?

Your student membership will start on the day that you pay for the student membership fee and it will be valid for 1 year from the date. Once we receive your payment for the membership fee, we will send you a final confirmation email to share the details that you need as a student member.

How can I renew my student membership?

You will receive a renewal notice email from BCACC a couple of weeks before your membership expiry date. You are eligible to renew your student membership if you
• are currently enrolled in an accredited master’s program in counselling psychology (or in a related field). You must be able to provide a current proof of enrollment (enrollment verification) letter from your institution at the time of renewal.
• are graduating soon or have graduated recently and made an application to become an RCC. You must be able to provide your RCC application number.

Who do I contact?
