Selkirk College

Located amidst the breathtaking beauty of southern British Columbia, Selkirk College is home to 60-plus nationally recognized programs serving about 2,700 full-time learners per year in certificate, diploma, bachelor degree, co-operative education and continuing education programs. With eight campus locations in six different West Kootenay and Boundary communities, Selkirk College offers outcomes for in-demand employment, credit transfer to a multitude of universities for degree completion and enhanced training to further career opportunities. Selkirk College is large enough to provide quality student services and facilities, yet small enough to offer individual support, small class sizes and an extra dose of attention not found in most post-secondary institutions. Our instructors are more than teachers, they are experts in their fields who have relevant real-world experience to share with students. Selkirk College is B.C.’s oldest rural community college and came to life after the regional taxpayers voted in a 1965 referendum to provide a close-to-home post-secondary opportunity. The doors first opened in Castlegar in 1966 with four programs—University Arts & Sciences, Business Administration, Forest Technology and Electronics—and a total enrolment of 458 students. Over the last five decades, Selkirk College has grown to become a major economic, social and cultural contributor. The cost of a post-secondary education should not prohibit learners from reaching for their dreams. Affordable tuition and student awards at Selkirk College make a post-secondary education accessible. Universities - $5,249; Selkirk College - $3,315 (Ministry of Advanced Education, 2016/17 Tuition for BC Public Post-Secondary Institutions) Selkirk College provides more than $425,000 in scholarships and bursaries to more than 400 students A college graduate with a two-year diploma will earn $405,000 more in their lifetime compared to someone with a high school diploma. Outcomes for Selkirk College’s alumni take the risk out of investing in affordable post-secondary.
