General description

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. Since 1966, it has been providing innovative and unique learning opportunities. The college has grown to become a major economic, social and cultural contributor. Today’s Selkirk welcomes students from across Canada and from around the world. It 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.

The College offers nationally recognized programs in certificate, diploma, bachelor degree, co-operative education and continuing education programs. It offers outcomes for in demand employment, credit transfer to a multitude of universities for degree completion and enhanced training to further career opportunities. Programs at Selkirk are organized and categorized by the schools and academic areas according to relevant subjects. The instructors are more than teachers, are experts in their fields who have relevant real world experience to share with students.

Surrounded by forests and overlooking Kootenay Lake, you’ll find our Tenth Street campus in Nelson’s Fairview neighbourhood. The campus itself offers lots for you to do between classes, including access to recreation facilities and close proximity to hiking trails.

Recently upgraded and renovated, this campus also has on-site student housing, the Shambhala Music and Performance Hall, as well as our Scholar’s Dining Room, run by our Hospitality and Tourism students.
