NSCC advisories

Following Public Health Guidelines

The health and safety of our students and employees is our top priority and we ask our entire NSCC community to follow all Public Health guidelines.


Please refer to the Government of Nova Scotia information regarding self-isolation. The site outlines detailed information on when someone should self-isolate. NSCC follows all Public Health guidelines and asks our students, staff and anyone coming to a campus to do the same.

Continue learning while self-isolating

Self-isolating means you can’t leave your home or dwelling where you are isolating.

If a student is unable to complete some aspect of their academic program due to either a) medical or b) extenuating circumstances (e.g., COVID-19 self-isolation or illness), wherever feasible students should be given every opportunity to complete their outstanding outcomes as outlined in our Evaluation Policy (PDF 160KB).

Reasons for the absence shall be documented to the satisfaction of the College. Please note that medical documentation for COVID-related self-isolation or illness is not required.
