Student Learning Plan – When you take courses for graduation with JDFDL or WestShore Centre for Learning & Training, you are required to complete a Personal Learning Plan with an academic advisor.  This Plan helps you to set your learning goals and select the courses you require to graduate.  To receive credit for all your previous schooling, please be certain to bring transcripts, resumes, and other relevant documentation when you meet with the advisor.

Withdrawing from a course

Non-attendance does not constitute withdrawal from a course.  Students must notify WestShore in person, by phone, emailing their teacher or emailing the school if they are requesting to withdraw from a course.  Text books should also be returned when withdrawing to avoid the text book deposit being processed two weeks after notice of withdrawal.

To request a withdrawal:
please email us at westshore@sd62.bc.ca
or call 250-391-9002
