Deferring Application

Eligible Applicants for the Winter 2024 intake

Applications remaining on our waitlist for the Winter 2024 intake are eligible for a one-time opportunity to defer to the next academic year for the same campus and the same program choice.  

The deferral process for Winter 2024 will open on Friday, October 27 and close on Friday, November 10. NBCC will offer the option of deferral for Winter 2024 applications that remain on a program waitlist. Deferral requests will only be accepted during the specified dates.  Any request after the deadline will not be considered and applicants will be required to re-apply should they still wish to be considered for a future intake.

A deferred application does not require payment of a new application fee. The application will retain the same date/time stamp as the original application in the following year’s admission cycle.

Options for waitlisted applications (Choose one):

  1. Complete the form below to request deferral to Winter 2025 intake, for the same program and same campus location.
  2. Applicants who possess a valid study permit may choose to remain on the waitlist for the Winter 2024 intake. As we approach the start of term seats may become available and waitlisted applicants may be contacted. Applications remaining on the waitlist, after programs are filled, will be cancelled. Please ensure you have communicated your study permit status, if you have not already done so, by filling out this survey
  3. Waitlisted applications that are not deferred, or the applicant does not possess a valid study permit, will be cancelled after the November 10 deadline.
