Scam Alert: Immigration call

Is it a scam_

Student Services would like to alert all students at Columbia College about recent telephone scams that have been targeting newcomers to Canada, including international students. In these situations, the caller often pretends to be an immigration officer or government official, and tells you that you have broken the law. It is probably a scam if they ask you to pay money or ask you to give them your personal information (date of birth, passport number, credit card information, etc.). They may even threaten you by saying that you could go to jail, be deported, lose your visa, or have your account suspended if you don’t pay or give your personal information.

Be aware: Scammers often give a fake name and agent number to appear legitimate. If you think the caller is a scammer:

  • ask for the name and number of the agent, and
  • call the Call Centre to confirm the agent’s identity.

If you received a suspicious call, hang up immediately and:

If you have been the target of a scam and provided personal or financial information, contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre:

 

Alternatively, you may also speak with Student Services staff for additional support.

Registration Wait List Information

There are no wait lists for 100 level courses.

Once a 100 level course section is full, students will not be able to register in that course section or join a wait list. Students should check the Student Portal regularly (daily) to monitor if any seats become available. Occasionally, new course sections are added to the timetable during and after early registration so it is important to stay connected (this website, Instagram, Student Portal).

Wait lists for 200 level courses:

If a 200 level course is full, students can request to be placed on a wait list*.

Student must send the request to registration@columbiacollege.ca on or after their registration date/time**.

The following information must be included in the request:

  1. In the subject line of the email, state Wait List Request for [course name].

Example: Wait List Request for CMNS 205 sec. 12.

  1. Include the following information in the body of the email message:
    1. Your full name
    2. Student number
    3. Course name
    4. Course section
    5. Contact information (email and mobile number)
    6. Total number of credits earned at Columbia College
    7. Do you meet the prerequisite requirement for that course or have a waiver?***

Example:  My name is John Smith; my student number is 812545. Please place my name on the waitlist for CMNS 205 sec. 12. You can contact me at jsmith@cc.ca or by phone at 778-222-2244.  I have completed 36 credits at Columbia College. I meet the prerequisite requirement for this course (passed English 100, earned more than 12 academic credits, and completed CMNS 110 with C- or higher).

If a seat becomes available, the first student on the list will be offered the seat via email and/or phone. The student will have 24 hours to accept the seat. After 24 hours the offer will expire. Students must check their e-mail and phone messages daily.

*Must meet all prerequisites for the course; otherwise, the request will be discarded.

**Any requests received before the allocated registration date/time will be discarded. Please refer to the Summer 2018 Registration Schedule. Example: Student with 36 credits at CC, should NOT send the request before 2PM on April 19th at 2PM.
