Delivery of Assignments and Course Material

How to Submit your Assignments

Your instructor should provide you with instructions for submission of assignments. In Quesnel, there is an assignment DROP BOX to the left of the main office door for submitting assignments after hours.  Staff check this box regularly.  If your instructor is located at another campus, he/she may ask you to submit assignments through the internal mail. The University's inter-campus, internal mail is a courier bin service between the Prince George Campus and the regional campuses. Assignments being sent to instructors through the courier bin to Williams Lake will be delivered through inter-campus mail to the Thompson Rivers University campus library for the instructor to pick up. Williams Lake students can use the same service to send assignments to instructors in Quesnel and Prince George.

Delivery Schedule

  • Course materials delivered through the courier bins will be picked up on a daily basis and delivered to the appropriate class. Please allow one extra day for distribution of materials on the receiving end.
  • Delivery service is overnight unless otherwise noted.  The bin is delivered to Williams Lake and sent out twice a week so plan accordingly.

Label and Date Stamp Your Submission

  • All mail should be clearly labeled with the instructor's name and location. Assignments should be date stamped at the designated drop off point before being sent to the instructor. 

Courier Strike Procedures

  • In case of a courier strike, mailing instructions will be made available as early as possible. It is your responsibility, however, to keep in contact with both your instructor and us to check on the arrangements.

Bookstore Services

  • Students at the Quesnel and Williams Lake campuses can order their books directly through the Bookstore in Prince George and have them delivered to their campuses.  Books can be ordered online or with a phone call to the Bookstore.  Students may also contact the Quesnel office to have their books ordered by office staff.  Just call or come to the Quesnel office. For students not at the Quesnel or Williams Lake campuses, books can be ordered through the Bookstore and delivered to the student’s home but shipping costs will apply. South-Central staff will make alternate arrangements to have books sent to students in other communities, free of charge to the students.
  • Please see the bookstore for a listing of your course textbooks requirements.

Computer Labs

  • The Quesnel Campus has a drop-in computer for students to use. They require a CNC login to access these computers.  Students request a CNC login from the UNBC front desk. 
  • Please check with the Quesnel office for computer availability at the TRU campus in Williams Lake.

Printing

  • Printing in the student computer lab is free. The paper is provided and students are advised to limit printing to course assignments. 

Library Services

  • The Quesnel campus has a library managed by the College of New Caledonia.  There are study rooms, computers, and a copier for students to use. 
  • Students can also access books and other reference materials through the UNBC Library in Prince George.  Books can be sent to the Quesnel and Williams Lake campuses via the courier bin at no cost to the students. 
  • The UNBC library also offers inter-library loans and those materials can also be sent via the courier bin as well.  Please contact the South-Central Office in Quesnel or the UNBC library in Prince George for more details. 
  • Student can email regional@unbc.ca to set up a UNBC library account or receive help. 

Grades & Transcripts

  • Regional students will receive a grade statement in the mail after the grades have been processed for each semester. 

Course Evaluations

At the end of the term you will be given a Course Evaluation Form. Please take the time to fill it in. Your comments are an important factor in the quality of delivery of all types of courses. Completed evaluations should be submitted to the front desk at the Quesnel campus. If you are registered in a web course, you will receive an email with instructions for online evaluations.
