How to Apply

We are here to help.  For questions regarding requirements, upgrading options, or how to apply, contact an Educational Advisor.

Step 1

Review the specific requirements for your program.

English Language Proficiency
NWCC recognizes a wide variety of alternative courses and tests to satisfy the four components of language (listening, speaking, reading and writing) required to be successful in your studies.

Not sure if you meet the English language requirements for your program? 

If English is not your first language, or you do not meet the English language requirements, you can demonstrate your proficiency through an evaluation method such as TOEFL, IELTS, or more. 


Individual courses in our programs may require the equivalents to Biology, Chemistry, Physics or Math.  If you are missing these equivalents you may enrol in Career & College Preparation (CCP) upgrading courses while you complete the program.  View the program requirements for specific details.


Step 2

Apply to your program and pay the application fee ($100 CDN - non-refundable).

Step 3

Submit your supporting documentation.

Unofficial documents are acceptable to begin the admissions process.  Please include the transcript legend, your student ID, full name, birthdate and the program you applied for.  Unofficial documents can be submitted by email to:

Official transcripts must be mailed in a sealed envelope or faxed from the institution you attended to NWCC and must include the official seal or signature of that institution. A notarized translation must accompany any transcripts that are not in English.  If you have completed the West African Examination Council Exams, NWCC must be supplied with scratch card information so results may be verified.

Step 4

Receive conditional acceptance.

Once you have met the requirements, you will be conditionally accepted into the program and must pay a $6000 deposit toward the first semester tuition fees. Your acceptance letter will be sent upon receipt of this payment. First-term tuition is non-refundable unless a study permit is denied.
