NBCC is committed to providing an accessible learning environment for all students. At NBCC, we ensure each student has equal opportunity to access education, training, and services.
We accommodate students with various accessibility needs, learning disabilities and/or physical or mental barriers. Academic and service accommodations are considered for ALL students and reviewed individually. If you have accessibility needs and/or received academic accommodations and/or supports while in high school or other post-secondary institutes, please contact us.
Our Accessibility Services staff work with students to develop comprehensive individual accommodation/learning plans and connect
students to supports to reduce barriers to learning. Our Student Success Centers are equipped with assistive technology to support learning in many forms.
To get started: Self-Identify
- Complete the Accessibility Services Form (pdf) and send to the Accessibility Services contact at the campus where you have been accepted.
- It is important to note this will NOT affect acceptance. If you meet entrance requirements for acceptance, this will allow NBCC to work with you to identify early learning needs.
- Contact the College Admissions Service (CAS) at 1-888-796-NBCC if you have questions and don't forget to pay your $250 confirmation fee within the deadline.
- Your information is confidential. Once accepted, Accessibility Services will contact you to determine your needs and put appropriate academic supports in place.
Accessibility Services – how we help with next steps:
- Learning Strategists and Accessibility Services staff are available for ALL students to support their academics; from study and test taking tips to support with academic and service accommodations, we are here to enhance your approach to learning.

Transitioning Life to College: A Right-Start Support Program
- First year college students have a lot of questions and likely some worries: will the workload be too much? What is the best way to take notes and read to remember? How do I approach an Instructor? This is where the TLC @NBCC program (Transitioning Life to College) can help!
- At NBCC we know students often arrive feeling overwhelmed and we want to provide an opportunity for students to ask questions and start the year off right. With this early start program, TLC provides students tools and strategies to help make small changes with huge impact to approach your learning.
