Following the leadership of the federal government and the Provincial Health Office, Selkirk College has implemented an extensive plan for students to self isolate upon arrival to Canada. Recent arrivals are housed under quarantine for 14 days in local hotels, with families or with homestay arrangements. Assistance with grocery and food delivery is managed by volunteers during the isolation period.
Read our plan to understand Selkirk College’s expectations and requirements to manage this period safely and smoothly.
Do I have to be vaccinated before I can begin my classes on campus?
No, there is currently no requirement for students to prove they have been vaccinated before they begin classes. We will update as requirements change.
Do I have to quarantine when I enter Canada?
Yes, currently all travelers who enter Canada by air are required to quarantine for 14 days: 3 days at a government approved hotel, and then the remainder of the 14-day quarantine at a suitable location. More details about travel restrictions and quarantine can be found here.
Can I start studying online without a visa approval?
If you are a new student beginning class in September 2021, and your program is online, Selkirk College will allow you to begin your classes if you do not have the final decision regarding your study permit. You must have already paid tuition, been issued an LOA, and applied for your study permit. Please email email@example.com for more information.
Is my program online or on campus in September?
Some programs are being offered online, while others are on campus. If you are a current/returning student, you will be receiving program specific information sometime in the month of June. If you are a new student, you will also be receiving program specific information during the month of June.
