Get Ready for NSCC

After you’ve been accepted to NSCC, you need to prepare for the academic year. The sooner you accept your offer, start applying for permits, find a place to live, etc., the better.

Before arriving on campus

To-do list: After you’ve been offered a seat

  • Accept your offer
    You need to confirm your seat in your program.
  • Apply for your study permit and co-op work permit
    It takes time to get a decision on your study permit application, and you are required to upload proof of your approved study permit by August 2, 2024. If your study permit application is denied or if your study permit application is not approved by the August 2 deadline, you will be removed from your program and your tuition deposit will not be refunded.
  • Download the mandatory iCent app (available on Google Play and the App Store)
    Important information and updates will be sent to you through the iCent app. The app works as a checklist to follow and mark tasks as done, and has icons and helpful links so you don’t miss any critical dates or deadlines. Make sure you turn iCent notifications on so you receive our important updates.
  • Review travel documentation
    Find out if you need an eTA or TRA.
  • Understand your deadlines
    To ensure you don’t miss important deadlines (study permit submission, tuition payments, etc.), keep an eye on due dates.

After arriving on campus

When you arrive at your campus, you’ll get more information about what you need for your studies. You can buy your textbooks online or at the campus bookstore. And you’ll have access to the student intranet, where you’ll find details on how to get an NSCC identification card, a parking pass, a library card, a locker, etc.
