Reference Notes

* This date is reflective of most full-time regular programs. Exceptions may apply for those courses or programs of shorter duration. The date above is also reflective of a course starting at the beginning of a term. In all cases, policy allows for the following:

  • Last Day to Withdraw without Academic Penalty: If the withdrawal occurs before 20% of the course duration, no grade for this course is included on the transcript of marks.
  • Last Day to Request a Pro-Rated Refund due to withdrawal, termination, change in academic load or international status. No refunds granted after Friday of the 4th week of the Academic Term.
  • Last Day to Withdraw with WI on Transcript: This notation indicates that a student withdrew from a course after 20%, but before reaching 50% of its duration.

** For classes that start on dates other than the official term start date: Deadline for all credit transfer or credit equivalency requests will be 3 weeks after the start of class.

*** Exceptions may apply for Apprenticeship and Non-Regular program deliveries.  Please verify with your instructor.

**** NBCC admits students up to a maximum of three weeks after the start of classes; however, the majority of programs are open for admissions for a two week period.

***** Only applicable for programs with a Spring term charge.

Note: This calendar of dates has been published for use by NBCC students, faculty and staff and is subject to change without notice.
