New Douglas College website has more features and easier navigation

Douglas College's homepage has a new look.
Douglas College has launched a new website to improve your online experience.

If you’re new to Douglas, you’ll find it easy to navigate, search for programs of interest, sign up for information sessions, or apply to the college. Existing students will experience the same benefits, in addition to being able to locate resources and services more easily.

Important changes

A new filterable, searchable Program and Course Catalogue (formerly known as the Calendar) is designed to make it easier to find programs and courses of interest.
  • Once you’ve picked a program, you can use the tabs to find out more information, including the costs associated with the program, and the curriculum, which links you to the individual courses.
  • The courses tab will show details on individual courses – including the course schedule and availability, as well as transferability to other institutions.
  • You can still use the Course Scheduling Tool to help build a draft schedule for registration. You can find it in the Register page, as well as under Important Resources.
Our website is now optimized for both tablets and smart phones, to improve your mobile experience. No more pinching and pulling!

The website’s structure has been changed to make it easier to find what you’re looking for. This may mean that things have moved. Please use the megadropdown navigation list and site search to find the new location for your resources. Some common resources related to studying at Douglas are now found under Study at Douglas/Important Resources in the main navigation megadropdown list.

Please be aware

The SEARCH function in our website is tied to Google. It takes several days, and sometimes longer, for all the pages to be fully indexed by Google. Search results on the website for the first few days may be imperfect. We apologize for any inconvenience and ask for your patience.

Some links and bookmarks may break in the transition between websites. In many cases, this may mean changing your bookmarks for frequently used pages.

Over the coming weeks and months we will continue to optimize the site and improve your experience. Your feedback can help and is very important. Please report missing information and broken links to
