NSCC's response to COVID-19: view updates

2021-22 programming changes

May. 26, 2021 – Anna Burke

Good afternoon,

Even as many of us work to continue and complete courses and programs for this academic year, we are also looking ahead to the Fall and the 2021-22 academic year. Below is an overview of what returning and new NSCC students can expect for the year ahead. More detailed information will follow as we get closer to September, and I encourage anyone with questions to reach out to your Faculty and student services team.

2021-22 Program Delivery

  • For the 2021-22 academic year, based on the progress expected with vaccines and other measures, NSCC plans to return to more in-person learning, supports and services.
    • Most of our programs will be offered in-person, on campus.
    • Some programs will be offered in-person, on campus but with a blended Fall 2021 term.
    • Some programs will be blended (a combination of in-person and online courses).
    • Some programs will be offered fully online.
  • IMPORTANT: View campus- and program-specific detail at 2021-22 academic program changes.

Campus Resources

  • Bookstores are expected to be open on campuses mid-August. Campuses will provide additional information on bookstore hours and services closer to that date. You can make book purchases through our eBookstore.
  • Cafeterias are expected to be open again to students beginning in September. Service will be slightly updated to ensure the safety of patrons and cafeteria staff.
  • Campus housing, including our two new facilities at Annapolis Valley Campus and Strait Area Campus, will be open for students. Find additional campus housing information.
  • Students are encouraged to have their own technology devices. Specific technology requirements are detailed in the program costs.


Class Of 2021

  • Many students are on track to graduate in June, while others will complete their programs in August or October. The Graduating Class of 2021 will be celebrated during a virtual convocation on October 23. We will share more information as details are available.
  • All students and graduates can find resources and support for a successful transition to the workforce, including opportunities to connect with employers and NSCC alumni, at the Career and Employment Services hub.

I truly want to thank you for your commitment and perseverance as we all continue to navigate through this very exceptional time.

Thank you,
