Student Access and Support (SAS) provides a wide range of services and resources for all current and prospective students. We help students succeed by facilitating access to post-secondary education, as well as supporting students while they are studying at Selkirk College.
The Aboriginal Services Coordinator provides support to all prospective and current aboriginal students and works closely with staff, students and communities to enhance aboriginal learners’ participation and success rate in Selkirk programs. Services can include such things as assistance with the application process, help with band funding, information on programs, and advocacy and support during the semester. The Aboriginal Services Coordinator also has scheduled days at the Nelson, Trail, Grand Forks, Kaslo and Nakusp campuses.
Selkirk College offers Exam Invigilation Services for Distance Education courses as well as exams from other institutions. The College Readiness Tool (CRT) is required of most students applying to Selkirk College. It provides a basis for advising students on appropriate program or course choices, thereby increasing their chances of future success. Information and registration for an exam can be done online by following the link above.
Counsellors help students to work toward their goals by providing career and personal counselling, educational
planning and course advising. They are sources of information about programs at Selkirk College and at other
post secondary institutions, the university transfer system, and career and employment trends.
We recognize that the impact of disabilities can make attending College more challenging. We are committed to working with you to maximize the accessibility of your learning experience at our college. The supports offered through Accessibility Services are intended to ensure that you, as a student with a disability, can participate fully in your course or program.
Learning Skills Coordinators provide support to students in three major areas: One-on-one tutoring, workshops and
peer tutoring. One-on-one tutoring and workshops focus on effective learning and study skills and include topics
such as time and stress management, organizational skills, reading comprehension, note-taking, memory techniques,
review, and exam preparation, while peer tutors provide assistance with specific course content.
