In-light of the pandemic, we understand that your plans to study at NBCC may have been impacted due to the inability to complete the study permit/visa application process, travel restrictions and/or personal reasons. As a result, NBCC is temporarily modifying its deferral policies for international applicants.
Eligible international applicants have a one-time opportunity to defer their application to the next academic year for the same campus and program choice. Deferral request can only be submitted 90 days before first day of class of intended intake. A deferred application does not require a new application payment and will retain the same date/time stamp as the original application in the future admissions cycle.
Changes to a campus-specific program selection received following a request for deferral will not retain the original time/date stamp and may be subject to new application fees.
Deferral requests are not accepted for changes to the intake, for example from Fall intake to Winter intake.
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.
NOTE: The option to defer, regardless of reason, will no longer available once a student begins their program.
Deferral request can only be submitted 90 days before first day of class of intended intake. Deferral requests will be processed by the Admissions Office within 15 business days of submission of the form below. Once processed, the deferred application will be in pending status and no further update will be available until
