Southeast College

Southeast College | Assiniboia, Saskatchewan | Founded 1975

Southeast Regional College Students

Set in a region with a significant demand for labour in the energy and industry sectors, Southeast College’s Estevan campus boasts a 44,000-sq.-foot facility with ample classroom space and three specialized labs. It also features a state-of-the-art confined-space simulator and fall-arrest simulator, designed to realistically but safely prepare students for work and rescue scenarios. Southeast has six campuses in Assiniboia, Estevan, Moosomin, Weyburn, Indian Head and Whitewood, so many students can stay close to home while pursuing their education. The college specializes in safety, trades and technical training; more than 70 per cent of students are enrolled in those areas. But the school also offers other certificate programs, including English language training, a diploma in early childhood education and first-year university programs in education, pre-social work, health sciences and the liberal arts. Southeast offers continuing education in agriculture, business, computers and truck driver training. Students can find scholarships from many industry partners; in 2021, new scholarships in the heavy equipment operator and adult basic education programs were added.

Southeast College is one of seven colleges in Saskatchewan that offer courses created by other educational providers in the province. The school also participates in the Saskatchewan Healthy Campus Community, which ensures mental health resources are available for all students.
