Halifax, NS - Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) is holding a virtual Open House from Wednesday, October 27 to Saturday, October 30, 2021.

A complete list of interactive events is online. You can find the schedule and register at Most sessions are 45 minutes in length and offer general information as well as information for high school students, international students and parents and supporters.

NSCC’s Virtual Open House will use GoTo Meetings software. An email will be sent to those who register, with a link to access the session(s) selected. Participants who require an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter can contact for support.

"We are celebrating some 4,500 graduates from the Class of 2021 through a unique virtual convocation ceremony this fall. Those grads have now joined tens of thousands of NSCC alumni who are making a difference in their communities, in Nova Scotia, nationally and around the world,” says NSCC President Don Bureaux. “We hope you will come and explore our programs and the possibilities they hold for your future if you choose to study at any of our 14 campuses."
