EXTENDED HEALTH AND DENTAL BENEFITS
Green Shield Student Coverage
Following a successful referendum of members, the students’ union implemented a comprehensive and mandatory extended health and dental benefits plan for full-time students, and under the age of 65. Like other plans at universities and colleges around the country, our plan provides extended coverage for prescription drugs, paramedical services, and dental work, along with travel insurance, accidental death and dismemberment coverage and other coverage tailored to students.
For full details on what your plan covers and how it works see our Extended Health and Dental page.
If you have questions contact the students’ union office at 250-365-1262, or Green Shield Student Centre 1-888-711-1119. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each year students’ union representatives work with businesses to provide Selkirk College students with discounts. Your current Selkirk College student ID card gets you access to exclusive discounts in the local community.
Students’ Union Services
As part of efforts to improve the academic experience of members, the students’ union operates a long list of services. Services do everything from improving campus life to making your educational experience more affordable.
In addition to the services listed below, the Union Executive is always looking for opportunities to do more for members. If you have an idea for a service that you think the Local should consider operating send an email to email@example.com or stop by our office to speak to a students’ union representative.
Generally, the student experience at Selkirk College is a good one. However, on occasion students disagree with decisions made by the college or faculty members. If you are facing a situation where you feel the wrong decision has been made and you would like to access the appeals mechanisms in place at Selkirk College, the students’ union can often provide an advocate who can guide you through the institutional appeals process.
Over the past five years, the students’ union has supported students through grade appeals, disciplinary action sought by the College, and other matters that have arisen between students’ union members and the College. To setup a meeting with an advocate, email firstname.lastname@example.org, call the students’ union at 250-365-1262, or stop by the students’ union’s office.
