Applicants whose first language is not English should visit the Adult Learning Program – English as an Additional Language as this may be an option for you.
Applicants who already have a high school diploma and want to upgrade or pick up a maximum of two missing courses needed for post-secondary study should visit the Adult Learning Program – Academic Upgrading.
Tuition amounts are for the 2023-24 academic year. Program costs and fees (textbooks, supplies, etc.) are additional.
This program is not eligible for a Nova Scotia Student Loan.
Tuition – for eligible students, there is no tuition cost, College services fee or student association membership fee for this program.
Fees – there is a cost for the required Student Health and Dental Benefits that are provided to all full-time students. Students can opt-out of the Student Health and Dental Plan if they already have equivalent coverage. New ALP students who successfully complete the first 3 months of the program can have this fee covered by NSCC for one year. For metro campuses only, students are required to purchase a Metro Transit U-Pass.
