2023-2024 Catalog


The Salish Kootenai College Catalog is not a contract but rather a guide for the convenience of students. The College reserves the right to change or withdraw courses; to change the fees, rules and calendar for admissions, registration, instruction, and graduation; and to change other regulations affecting the student body, at any time. The College reserves the right to change policies or revise curricula as necessary.

If the College decides to terminate a degree program, students enrolled in that program will be provided timely written notice. Students will be afforded a set time for program completion, determined through a “teach out” plan established by the College and the academic department which offered the degree program.

Student Responsibility for Catalog

Each student is responsible for knowing the information printed in this Catalog. Failure to read these regulations will not be considered an excuse for noncompliance. SKC places full responsibility on the student for registering for appropriate courses and for fulfilling all requirements for a certificate or degree set forth in this catalog, as amended from time to time. No agent or employee of the College has the authority to warrant graduation the attainment of any type of license.

The College does not accept any responsibility for delays in graduation or attainment of career goals resulting from errors in registration, cancelled courses, schedule adjustments, changes in degree requirements or similar related changes, or errors resulting from consultation with any college employee and reliance upon information acquired from said employee.
