How do I know if I am accepted or not?

I applied for SALCC; when is registration?
Before you can register, you must first be accepted. Upon collection of your acceptance letter, registration dates will be given.

When completing the application form, certified evidence of all results should have been submitted along with the application.

Every year, the initial application deadline is in March and the late application deadline is in June, after which time applications are closed.  Applications are usually available from February of every year.

I am unable to pay the full amount by the date of registration. Is there a way I can pay later?
The College recognizes that not everyone is able to afford the fees all at once and as such, students are asked to speak with the Bursar regarding a Tuition Installment Plan (TIP).

How will I know if I got accepted to be a Lab Monitor, to which I applied?
All Lab Monitor applicants will be notified via email whether or not they are accepted.  The Lab Monitor positions are ONLY OPEN TO REGISTERED STUDENTS.

What is the cost of a replacement student ID card?
Student ID cards are replaced at a cost of EC$30.00. This fee should be paid at the Finance Department and you are to report to the Information Technology Services Department (ITS) thereafter with your receipt for the card to be printed.

How do I access the College’s wireless network?
All staff and registered students are issued with a wifi code, which can be obtained from the Information Technology Services Department (ITS), top floor of the Business Department.

My email address and contact numbers have changed. How do I update my student information?
