Deferring Application


In-light of the pandemic, we understand that your plans to study at NBCC in Fall 2020 may have been impacted due to the inability to complete the study permit/visa application process, travel restrictions and/or other personal reasons. As a result, the College is temporarily modifying its deferral policies for international applicants.

Eligible Applicants

  • Those who have been admitted to the Fall 2020 intake but are impacted by COVID-19,
  • Those who have been admitted to the Fall 2020 intake but visa/study permit applications have been refused
  • Those who have been waitlisted for the Fall 2020 intake.

Eligible international applicants now have a one-time opportunity to defer their application to the next academic year for the same campus and program choice.

Deferred applicant's status will be re-instated using the old date/time stamp and no application fee will be requested. Fall 2021 applications will start being processed in October 2020.

Please note that your confirmation fee is non-refundable and will be deferred to the next academic year. Applicants who have made additional payments towards their student fees may request a refund by following the steps found here.

Deferral Request Deadlines

NOTE: The option to defer, regardless of reason, will no longer be available once a student begins their program on September 8th 2020.
