Sprott-Shaw closing Vernon campus

July 13, 2011

Due to low enrolment, the Vernon campus of Sprott-Shaw Community College will close its doors this fall after 9 years of operation. The campus currently serves only 20 students and offers courses in the fields of administrative assistant, health care assistant, business administration, community support worker, social services, medical office assistant and legal secretary. With other education options like UBC Okanagan and Okanagan College nearby, the Vernon campus wasn’t able to attract enough students to remain viable. Sprott-Shaw’s campuses in Duncan and Courtney are also slated for closure after the federal government revoked its standing as an authorized institution for student loans.  BC Local News
