Student Services

Student Services are available for students from the time they show an interest in NWCC until the time they complete their studies at the College. These services are available through the Student Support Team described below. To see the list of team members available to help you, select the appropriate link below.

Educational Advising

Visiting the Educational Advisor is the first step in becoming a NWCC student. Potential students interested in applying to the College are strongly encouraged to contact their local campus to make an appointment to speak with an Educational Advisor.

Contact an Advisor

NWCC endeavours to provide students with the most current and accurate educational advice available; however, because of the dynamic and complex nature of post-secondary education in BC, we urge all students who are seeking transfer to other institutions to always verify the advice we offer them with the receiving institution.

Assessment and Application

Students without documentation of formal English and/or math prerequisites may do an entry assessment to find out if they are ready to begin their studies. Students who aren't yet ready will be helped to upgrade their skills.

Learning Assistance

NWCC provides a number of ways a student can access support to ensure a successful and rewarding educational experience. Learning Assistance Specialists assess learning difficulties and provide helpful strategies that lessen their effects as a barrier to a student's success. Free Student Success courses are conducted at most campuses throughout the year. Students experiencing learning difficulties, for whatever reason, are encouraged to contact a Learning Assistance Specialist or any member of the Student Services Team.

First Nations Access

First Nations students who want to access College programs or services are strongly encouraged to visit a First Nations Access Coordinator. The goal of these services is to provide a successful transition to NWCC, create a welcoming environment, and provide support at all points along a student's educational journey.
