Please Note: Applications for Grade 11 students are open on April 1st. For more information please read below.
Are you currently in Grade 11 and planning what comes next after high school? Colleges and universities typically accept applications once you are in Grade 12, but at NBCC you can apply early as a Grade 11 student. This gives you a head start and a better chance of being "First Qualified, First Accepted" into your program of choice.
NBCC program seats are all offered based on FQFA, first qualified, first accepted. That means the earlier you get your application in, the better chance you have at getting a seat.
Some of our most popular programs have waitlists, which means there could already be applicants “in line” for a seat. Applying early in Grade 11 gives you a better chance at being at the top of the list by the time you graduate and are ready for College.
Mark your calendar! Applications for Grade 11 students can be submitted on April 1st. (12:01 am, April 1)
If you submit your application prior to April 1st your application will be cancelled, and you will have to resubmit. This includes paying a new application fee.
Make sure you have a copy of your Grade 11 high school transcript. You must get a copy of this from your Guidance Counsellor, your class schedule printout from PowerSchool is NOT your transcript.
Pick the program you want to apply to. Visit NBCC’s Full-Time Programs page and explore! If you need help choosing, you can contact one of our Student Recruitment Advisors and find out what program(s) may be the right fit for you.
Be ready to pay the $50.00 application fee to submit your application. You will be directed to pay online through the Service New Brunswick payment portal.
