Beginning in 2015 for applications to 2016-2017 programs, NBCC will be revising its application process. This information is especially important to students who are currently in Grade 11. What will these changes mean for prospective NBCC students? ·         Waitlisted applicants will no longer move up and down a waitlist based on marks.·         Waitlisted applicants will no longer need to re-apply each year. Beginning in fall 2015, waitlists will roll over and waitlisted applicants will retain their position until seats become available.·         Waitlisted applicants who receive an offer of acceptance less than four weeks prior to the start of the program will have a one-time option to defer their application. This means they keep their original time stamp and their application is carried forward to the next academic year for the same program/location.·         New applications will be processed on a continuous basis for the next available program intake using the date and time stamped approach.  As well, beginning in June 2015, early applications for Grade 11 students may be submitted.Please find attached a "Frequently Asked Questions" document to assist students and parents.
