Campus Update

Make sure to register
Students should register online for Spring Quarter.

All Hold Flags are suspended temporarily to remove as many barriers to the registration process as possible.

Talk to your advisor
It is very important that students be in contact with their advisors via email, Schoology, phone, Lifesize video conferencing, or Google Hangouts Meet as we all navigate our way through these events.

Students who have completed paper registrations and have already met with advisors and gotten the necessary signatures can take a photo of the registration card, or scan it and email it to cleo_kenmille@skc.edu.

Remote Learning
Most classes will be taught online, with a few exceptions. Students should work with their advisors to determine how their various courses will be delivered.

Drop/Adds
All drop/adds require advisor approval, Students wanting to drop/add will email their advisor for approval. The advisor will email their approval to Cleo, and she will process the approved drop/add.

Students can check their JICS account to see that they are registered as well to verify that any drop/adds have been approved and processed.

If there are any problems with the registration or drop/add process, students and advisors can call Cleo Kenmille at 406-240-3379 or email her at cleo_kenmille@skc.edu.

The first priority of SKC is the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and families. In response to the Coronavirus pandemic and guidance from public health and governmental entities, SKC will begin spring quarter classes and services in an online environment. The campus is closed during spring break, students will continue to have access to their dorms and family housing. SKC is still providing critical student services on-line such as financial aid, registrar, admissions, housing, business office, health services, and counseling services.

Students, please plan to attend your spring courses on-line. Although the campus will be closed to begin the quarter, we recommend that you return to the area as if you were going to attend courses in person, this allows SKC to provide you the support and services needed for your academic success. Course delivery will evolve as the situation with coronavirus changes, SKC may transition from on-line only delivery to limited face-to-face instruction. As we are transitioning to on-line delivery it is important to plan how you will access those classes. If you have technology limitations, please notify your advisor as soon as possible.

Watch your email and frequently check this web page for up-to-date information. We know that this is a difficult time for everyone. Please ensure that you take care of yourself and your families. The college has emotional support services available with the Center for Prevention and Wellness, additionally, you may seek assistance with Tribal health and/or your primary care provider.
