Halifax, NS – Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) has announced its plans for program delivery for the upcoming 2021-22 academic year.

NSCC is preparing to return to more in-person learning, supports and services while continuing with some planned online and blended delivery beginning in September 2021. The College is committed to providing a safe learning and working environment according to the latest guidance from Public Health that supports academic integrity and an exceptional student experience.

I am so proud of the resilience, innovation and perseverance demonstrated by our entire learning community and look forward to welcoming returning and new students this fall.”
