Academic & Exam Accommodations
- Corpus Christi College seeks to welcome students with special needs by providing these students with academic and exam accommodations so they can succeed. The College works to implement the recommendations outlined by the University of British Columbia Access & Diversity Office
, which require documented medical assessment of student disabilities or special needs. Ensuring equitable treatment of all students according to their needs and in a manner consistent with academic principles is of utmost importance to the community. Advanced preparation is required so contact the Office of the Registrar
early to guide you through the process of requesting an accommodation.

SMC Seminars Program

You must enroll in a section of this important program through your My LION CCC account, and every student receives a tuition bursary, which reflects the College’s commitment to liberal arts studies in higher education.
The SMC Seminars are designed to prepare students for the rigors of post-secondary life inside and outside of the classroom: time management, work-life balance, academic reading, writing, research, presentation and discussion skills. It is through these seminars that Corpus Christi students have access to additional services and programs.
Study Hall & Computer Lab
- Students can find quiet time to study or to gather with a study group during designated hours for Study Hall. The Computer Lab is available for students to work on their online courses in a supportive and focused environment. Peer Tutors are on hand to offer assistance or to direct you to resources when life gets in the way of being a student.
