How Do I Start My Degree?
You can earn an associate of arts degree, associate of science degree, diploma, advanced diploma or certificate at Selkirk College and then, if you choose, transfer your credits toward a university degree.
A university degree typically consists of a total of 120 credits or 40 courses, including 20 courses at the first- and second-year level and 20 courses at the third- and fourth-year level from a degree-granting university. You could take two academic years at Selkirk College and earn a credential and then transfer to a university to take 20 more courses to complete a bachelor’s degree.
How Can I Transfer?
BC has one of the best transfer systems in North America. All of our courses are articulated on the BC Transfer Guide website and transfer well to the major universities in the province. Since our course content and textbooks are at university standards, and because of the high level of qualification of our faculty, we have an excellent success with transfer beyond BC as well.
To get started on your academic plan, choose a program that will guide you in selecting your first 20 courses from over 100 possibilities. Connect with a counsellor to get more details and chart your path.
What If I Don't Want to Pursue a Credential?
You are welcome to take a few courses to get started in post-secondary education. You can take University Arts & Sciences courses through Open Studies. If you decide to pursue a credential later, you can include them as part of an associate degree, diploma or certificate.
