Step 2 - Registration in Courses

Once you are admitted to the College and receive notification from us that you have been accepted, you need to enrol in the courses you want, following the instructions regarding registration dates contained in the letter we send. You are able to register online for many programs. Registration options will be explained to you when you receive your acceptance letter.     

Register early and in advance to guarantee your spot in the class of your choice! Some classes fill quickly and only receipt of payment guarantees your spot.

Select Courses
Depending on the program chosen this step will vary considerably. The student will need to know which courses to take before registering. In some cases the student will be given a predetermined ‘set’ of courses that have already been arranged. In other programs the student will be required to choose appropriate courses. The NWCC calendar and Web site contain the information needed to select courses in the chosen program. Read carefully for the courses required and their prerequisites. The Web site also contains course and timetable information. Program Coordinators and Educational Advisors may also be contacted for more information.

Plan Your Timetable
At NWCC, most students set up their own timetable or can be assisted by an Educational Advisor. Students may not register until courses have been selected and a conflict-free timetable has been planned. All necessary prerequisites must be met before registering for courses. All newly accepted students will be mailed information about timetables. Continuing students may pick up a timetable at the Admissions Office or click here to find it online.

Students must ensure they set up a conflict-free timetable. Be sure to read the essential information about important dates and deadlines, withdrawing from courses, and refund policies. Students should consider their course loads carefully. A full-time course load varies by program. For instance, a full-time university credit student (100% course load) would take five courses each semester; however, for other purposes, such as financial aid, fulltime may mean three courses or more. See an Educational Advisor for details. There is no guarantee that the courses wanted will have space available therefore choose alternate courses before registering.

Note: Not all courses listed in the NWCC calendar or on the Web site are offered each semester. Please refer to the timetable for a list of courses currently offered. Students are strongly encouraged to consult an Educational Advisor for assistance.

The balance of tuition and other fees are due before the start date of classes. Students must pay for all courses in which they are registered at that time. The student is required to register (complete all forms and pay all fees) on or before the date specified in the acceptance letter. If awaiting a Student Loan to be processed, the student may apply to defer the payment of fees by contacting the Registration Office. If fees are being paid by a sponsoring agency a letter to this effect must be presented at the time of registration.

Students who are unable to pay tuition, and who cannot obtain financial assistance or sponsorship should consult with an Educational Advisor for further information.
