Welcome to the Shuswap-Revelstoke

The Salmon Arm campus and Revelstoke Centre care about supporting students through this current crisis. We recommend that all students visit the College's Coronavirus (COVID-19) response page for up-to-date information about available services, frequently asked questions and online resources.

Below is a quick list of contacts, to help students readily reach individuals available on the Salmon Arm campus. Note: this is an evolving situation, and this page will be updated when information becomes available. The College highly recommends students visit the main www.okanagan.bc.ca/covid response page for the latest information.

Academic Support

Technology available 

Laptops available for loan through IT Services. Students at the Salmon Arm campus can call ahead (1-866-839-4032) and IT Services can arrange to have hardware made available for you.

Is online learning new to you? OC has an Online Resource Centre for students that reviews the tools available, support services in place and other information. This page is being updated as more resources come online.

Tutoring in the Success Centre 

Tutoring for writing assignments will continue online throughout the rest of the semester. Download this information sheet to get started.

Education Advising

You can still contact an Education Advisor about course planning, admission requirements, university transfer information and graduation requirements. Email educationadvisor@okanagan.bc.ca, and the team will contact you. International students can also contact intedadvisors@okanagan.bc.ca to book an appointment.

Aboriginal Services

Aboriginal Services Coordinators are available to support Indigenous students with their academic and cultural needs. Contact the department by sending an email to aboriginal@okanagan.bc.ca

Accessibility Services

If you experience learning barriers related to a disability and require information on academic supports, contact Accessibility Services at accessibility@okanagan.bc.ca.

Personal Support

Counselling Services

This is a challenging time, and OC's Counselling Services are here to help. Email counselling@okanagan.bc.ca and provide your student number, campus you are attending, the days and times that you are available, and whether you prefer a telephone or videoconference appointment.  You will receive a response within 1 business day.

Financial Aid and Awards

Students naturally have a lot of questions around the implications of class changes on their student loans. Okanagan College has some frequently asked questions about BC Student Loans. Financial Aid and Awards staff are also here to help. Email the department at financialaid@okanagan.bc.ca to set up an appointment to talk to someone.

Language and Settlement Services

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has recommended that Settlement and English as a Second Language programs focus on the provision of critical resettlement and case management services until further notice. Non-critical services can be provided as appropriate by phone or email. We are hopeful that these actions while disruptive in the short term will contribute to minimizing the spread of COVID-19 and keep our community healthy and safe.

ESL Settlement Assistance Tutoring

In both Salmon Arm and Revelstoke, ESL Settlement Assistance Tutoring programs have been suspended until further notice. This includes any practice groups or settlement events. For Salmon Arm inquiries, please contact Olia Bullen by emailing obullen@okanagan.bc.ca.

In Revelstoke, individual settlement work will be delivered through phone or email. For an appointment in Revelstoke, contact Leanne Humphrey at lhumphrey@okanagan.bc.ca or leave a message at 250-837-4235, ext. 6504.
