We are now accepting RPL applications for courses scheduled to start in the LAST 7 WEEKS of Fall 2020. Please note the following important information:
Top 3 questions we received about the RPL application process this term:
Question: Can I use one application form to apply for credit toward more than one NBCC course?Answer: NO. You must submit a SEPARATE application form for EACH NBCC course you
are seeking credit for. If you use one form to apply for credit toward more than one NBCC course, your application will be rejected.
Question: How long will it take to receive a result and how can I check my status?Answer: You should receive a result within 3-4 weeks of submitting your RPL application. Since you must attend class until you
receive a result, we encourage you to apply as early as possible to avoid longer wait times. You can check the status of your application by clicking “View Your Open RPL Requests” on the RPL Portal:
For detailed explanations of each status type, see the answer to "How can I check the status of my application?" on the FAQ page.
Note: The RPL Office will not respond to individual requests for status updates during the assessment period.
Question: How can I make sure my attachments have been uploaded with my application?Answer: Click the “Attach” button on the task bar at the top of the form. You should see all of your attachments

At NBCC, we recognize that learning happens inside and outside the classroom. Our Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) program allows you to gain credit for the learning you already possess. You may have taken many different paths to develop this learning,
from formal coursework at other post-secondary institutions to informal workshops and seminars, on-the-job training, work experience, volunteerism, military service or family commitments. No matter how or where you gained your experience, RPL provides
a way for you to demonstrate your learning and receive formal credit for it.
There are two ways you can be awarded credit towards your program at NBCC:
There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.
Use this form to ask questions about RPL or request a meeting with the RPL Coordinator to discuss your application.

NBCC campuses are located on Mi’kmaq, Wolastoq and Peskotomuhkati homelands. Since 1726 this land has been subject to treaties that are still in effect today. We are grateful to learn together on this land and do so guided by the original spirit
of those treaties - peace, respect and friendship.
