What is the cost of the program?

How long are the courses at Campbell College?
Dependent on the program, our courses run from 33 weeks to 56 weeks at Campbell College. We have programs running all the time and run our programs with multiple intakes. We also have standard intakes in September and January that typically coincide with other colleges and universities in the area if you are looking for something with a more “traditional” start date set up.
How are the courses delivered?
Delivery of Campbell College Programs are determined by the course. Our delivery methods include.
– on campus

– asynchronous programs delivered online
Each course is unique and delivered accordingly.
Do you have a practicum and how does the practicum work?
We know exactly what employers are looking for because we have long-established, on-going practicum partnerships throughout the Government of Alberta, the City of Edmonton, School Boards, Alberta Justice, Alberta Health, not-for-profit organizations, as well as private industry. All of our programs include an 8 week practicum, in which the students are placed in a position best suited to their aspired work environment. At the end of your theoretical training you will enter the practical training portion of your studies – this means you transition from school to the real world. This can be daunting for some but rest assured we are here to do the hard work for you! We take care of all the looking and approving of practicum for you by selecting your placement for you and ensuring that your practicum host is the best possible fit for you.
Can I receive financial assistance to attend school?
The short answer is yes, as a government accredited college, Campbell College students may be eligible to receive student funding, scholarships, grants and bursaries. Our Admissions team is available to support you and help you when applying for student aid, scholarships, grants and bursaries. The long answer is more complicated – everyone’s financial situation is different and no two student aid applications are the same. Whether or not you receive student aid is decided on many factors and in the end it comes down to the final decision of Student Aid Alberta based on the compilation of those factors.
Some factors may include:
– If you have any children
– If you are married
– How much money you make – if you are married, how much your spouse makes
– How long you have been out of high school
These are not the only deciding factors and the government does look at your application in a holistic sense to help them help you afford your education. Please speak with your Admissions Coordinator to discuss Student Aid further.
How can I get a student loan or finances for my education?
Be sure to obtain your Alberta.ca Account (formerly My Alberta ID) prior to applying. Do not share your username, password, or personal information without knowing why you’re being asked for it, what it’s being used for, and how it is being protected. Student Aid cannot be accessed without an Alberta.ca Account. You will be considered for both loans and grants with one application. Loan repayments begin after 6 months of your last day of school.
How do I go about paying back my student loans?
Before you graduate you will attend a workshop about what student loan repayment looks like and what to expect. When you graduate you have a six month window of time after graduation where your Alberta Student Loan is interest free, you may choose to make payments within this time period to start paying of your principle balance but you may also wait until that six month window has passed to start making payments. Canadian student loans are now interest free! The Alberta government has a program in place called the Repayment Assistance Program available to help you as well. Please talk with your Admissions Coordinator for further information about repayment and interest free periods.
What happens after I graduate?
Once you graduate and become a Campbell College Alumni, you are invited back for our Alumni events as you continue to be part of the Campbell College family. Alumni events offer our graduates an opportunity to network with other alumni, community members, and business representatives from the private and public sectors.
Job search assistance is only a phone call away for any graduate needing support at one of the best colleges in Edmonton, Alberta. We have a life time guarantee as well for our graduates – as long as Campbell College stands and exists alumni may come back to us for help with job searching, resume updating and professional development.
I have an online class – how do I complete my online studies and what do I need?
Students will complete the majority of their assignments, written exams, preparations, studying, etc. online and within a set timeframe. Our asynchronous courses and online programs provide flexibility for our students to earn a diploma while maintaining their current lifestyles. Students are given access to an online learning management system that supports their independent studies, including videos, lectures, exams, assignments, and many other resources. You will need equipment that can access the internet for your classwork – a laptop or desktop computer will be required as tablets may be unable to fully access the software and materials.
POST GRADUATE WORK PERMIT SPECIFIC QUESTIONS
Are Campbell College and Portage College the same?
The short answer is, no, we are not the same. We offer some similar programs but we are different!
Campbell College is a Designated Learning Institution (DLI) and able to accept International Students into programs licensed under the Private Vocational Training Act. Programs between that of Portage and its’ host, Campbell College, may differ in availability, length, price and delivery. Campbell College is partnering with the publicly funded Portage College Continuing Education, for the ultimate educational experience in quality education for international students.
Portage is a Designated Learning Institution that is a Public Institution – this means that Portage students are eligible for things that private institutions are not eligible for such as a Post Graduate Work Permit. Portage College also offers longer duration programs than Campbell College (2 year).
Am I eligible to apply for a post graduate work permit if I am a Portage College Student?
If you successfully graduate from Portage College’s Continuing Education program, yes! You are eligible to apply for a Post Graduate Work Permit!
If you require or desire a Post Graduate Work Permit as an international student, Campbell College has a partnership with Portage College, which is a public institution. Portage students are eligible to apply for a Post Graduate Work Permit upon successful graduation from Portage College’s Continuing Education program based on their status as a public institution.
