Frequently Asked Questions
How and when does NSCC process applications?
We accept and admit qualified applicants for all programs on a first received, first qualified basis. More...
How much time do I have to confirm my seat in a program?
Once you are admitted to a program, you must confirm your intention to enrol by paying the required non-refundable tuition deposit within the timeframe indicated in the letter/email you receive from NSCC. This deposit counts towards your tuition.
How can I make a change to my application?
Changes or additions to your choices require the submission of a new application and fee.
My admissions letter says "Waitlisted". What does that mean?
This means that even though you've met the requirements for the program, we've offered all available seats in the program to applicants who applied before you, so you're on a waitlist.
If the program is waitlisted, should I still apply?
If you apply and are qualified for a program that is waitlisted you will be placed on the Waitlist. More
How long is the waitlist, and how far down am I on the list?
Our Admissions process does not allow us to give waitlisted applicants a position number. More
When will a seat become available in my program?
There is usually a lot of movement on waitlists, especially in July and August when students finalize their plans. If their plans have changed, they withdraw themselves to make room for applicants who are still interested. So, if you're on a waitlist, please do not lose hope in attending the program.
When I applied for a program the Program Openings indicated 'Seats Available', why am I on a waitlist?
To the best of our knowledge there were still seats available as of that day but there were several applications there were unprocessed as we have applications coming in every minute, from 13 different campuses. The program openings information is not in real time.
