Academic Advising

PCU-WHS has both instructors and faculty assigned as student advisors in academic matters and support personnel who are qualified to assist in more personal issues. Initially, the Office of the Registrar will be the student point of contact.

Computing Services

Students will receive a number of services online including:

  • admissions and registration,
  • access to student support,
  • Library, and
  • the University’s learning system.

Students may access the University’s wireless network when on campus. Students are expected to provide their own hardware, internet connection, internet browser and word processing software to access the University’s computing facilities.

The computing and communication facilities and services provided by the University are intended for University activities only such as teaching, research and administrative purposes.


PCU-WHS provides access to a comprehensive online library. The library is provided and maintained by EBSCO Information Services, a well-known provider of academic library products and services.

The online library includes access to:

  • HR Source which includes more than 260,000 full-text records and complete coverage of more than 100 journals. Topics include employee recruiting and retention, employee benefits and compensation.
  • Academic Search Elite, which includes approximately 1,600 active full-text journals and magazines (1,300 active full-text peer-reviewed journals). Academic Search Elite covers all major academic disciplines and is a rich source of full-text journals and abstracted and indexed journals.
  • Source Elite, which includes 600 active full-text journals and magazines, 350 of which are active full-text peer-reviewed journals.
  • Online Search Tools: in addition to the specific databases described above, the EBSCO application also offers a variety of research tools.
  • Students will be guided by faculty to find and apply appropriate information to course assignments and to build critical information literacy skills that support independent learning and professional practice.

For students taking courses on campus, there is an onsite library commons housing a collection of national and international publications including books, periodicals and journals dealing with each of PCU-WHS’s specializations.

Students with Disabilities

The University makes its courses and programs accessible to students with disabilities in accordance with the Human Rights Code of British Columbia.

The University will reasonably accommodate students with disabilities on the basis of current documentation. Students are required to self-identify and bring requests for accommodation or changes in accommodation to the attention of the Registrar, allowing for reasonable time for the University to respond.

The University may offer a student provisional accommodation for a limited period of time pending submission of complete and acceptable documentation. The University may also provide accommodations for students with temporary disabilities on a case by case basis.
