The Sign up/Register page used to create an account says one must be a post-secondary faculty member, but post-secondary staff are eligible as well. Yukon faculty and staff are also eligible, and Yukon College is included in the “B.C. Institution” drop-down menu on the account sign-up page. (See Pressbooks Accounts.)

If you are an instructor or staff member with a private post-secondary institution not listed on the Institution drop-down menu, contact BCcampus Support for account set-up assistance.
