Study at Selkirk College While Hitting the Slopes in World-renown West Kootenay

Selkirk College has a top quality Business Program and the location to boot. For students like Bryanne Mcelroy, both weighed equally important as she decided where she wanted to pursue her post-secondary education. The Alberta native came to the West Kootenay to study and snowboard, balancing work and leisure as she strives for success.

Five outstanding Selkirk College faculty members have been recognized for their commitment to learning and exceptional performance in the classroom.

An evening to celebrate learning and the contributions to student success by Selkirk College faculty members was the focus of a wonderful night on the Castlegar Campus at the annual SCOPE Awards ceremony.

Since Selkirk College alumni began transitioning into the regional workforce in the late-1960s, individuals educated close to home have helped build and grow the economy of the West Kootenay and Boundary region.

What Students Say

Brandi Callaghan, Alumna from Selkirk College
Selkirk College has a good reputation, it’s in my hometown and it's affordable. The small class sizes offer you a more personal experience. They offered the program I wanted and studying abroad is a great feature to the program. It was a great place to start my education.

jeromie parker career financial bmo
There's no way I would be able to multi-channel and multi-task the way I can now without having spent those two years at Selkirk College. Courses were challenging and it was a lot of work, but the learning has not ended because in the banking industry there is always something new.
Jeromie Parker, Business Administration Graduate 2014
Krys Klimuk Graduate from Selkirk College
Selkirk’s smaller class sizes provided opportunities for me to develop exceptional skills and cultivate relationships with most of my peers and instructors, which may not have been possible at a large university.
Krys Klimuk, Business Administration – Accounting and Finance, 2012 Graduate.
