NSCC's COVID-19 response: view updates

Application fee and tuition deposit

Application Fee

A new application must be accompanied by a non-refundable application fee. The fee is $25 for domestic applicants and $C75 for international applicants. There is no application fee for Adult Learning Program (ALP) or Achieve applicants.

Non-Refundable Tuition Deposit

Once you are admitted, you must pay a non-refundable tuition deposit within the timeframe indicated in your letter/email from NSCC or risk losing your seat in the program. The deposit is $200 for domestic applicants and $C1,000 for international applicants. The tuition deposit is non-refundable and cannot be transferred to another academic year. The deposit counts toward your tuition and confirms your intention to enrol.

Pay Tuition & Fees – For programs that start in fall, the first tuition & fees payment is due in early August. This payment includes tuition, health & dental plan costs, and Student Association fees. If you do not make payment arrangements before the deadline, you risk losing your seat in the program. Advise your campus if you are seeking or have funding from a sponsoring agency.
