We have established a Student Information Line, which can be reached at (604) 435-5815. The Student Information Line is open during business hours, Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5:00pm. By calling the Student Information Line, you will be able to select from available services and be transferred to a staff representative. Some services, such as Academic Advising and Writing & Learning Centre, will also be available by appointment through video conferencing, during business hours.
There are no known cases of COVID-19 at Alexander College, however, following the advice of the Provincial Health Officer on social distancing, all Winter 2020 classes have been moved to an online format for the remainder of the term. All classes will be delivered online at the time of day that they are regularly scheduled via Canvas and BlueJeans.
For help with Canvas or BlueJeans, visit:https://alexandercollege.ca/student-success/writing-and-learning-centre/bluejeans/or call the Canvas Helpdesk at (604) 558-6195.
To further support our social distancing efforts during this time, Alexander College has decided to move all courses for the upcoming Spring 2020 term to an online format (e.g. virtual classrooms). Registration for Spring 2020 term is open until May 1; tuition fee payments can be made through online banking. Please see our website FAQ section below for more information.
All in-person student support services are now offered online via email, phone, or video conferencing for the remainder of the Winter 2020 term. Our staff will continue to work remotely, and campus facilities will not be accessible until further notice.
We are continuing to monitor the changing conditions in BC. Alexander College will post updates on our website: www.alexandercollege.ca as the situation changes over time.
