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? Check our list of countries that satisfy speaking and listening requirements.
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. Check our list of listening, speaking, reading and writing alternatives.
NWCC offers the following pre-entry programs that will help you meet the entrance requirements for your program:
- English as a Second Language (ESL) – English upgrading
- Career and College Preparation (CCP) – English, Math, Biology or Chemistry upgrading options
Apply to your program and pay the application fee ($100 CDN - non-refundable).
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Receive conditional acceptance.
Once you have met the requirements, you will be conditionally accepted into the program and must pay a deposit of 50% of your first-year 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.
