New Brunswick Community College program changes for September 2018

New Brunswick Community College (NBCC) has announced changes to three programs for the 2018-2019 academic year starting in September.

“As NBCC seeks to welcome more learners and prepare them for career success, it is important to effectively allocate and align our limited resources,” said Mary Butler, Vice-President, Academic Development. “Throughout the year, we monitor  admissions as well as historic enrolment trends, labour market demand and industry needs.”

As a result of the most recent review, NBCC has made the following program changes:

  • Discontinued Programs: Two programs will be discontinued due to ongoing low enrolment – Early Childhood Education (St. Andrews Campus) and Administrative Professional: French Second Language Training (Moncton Campus).
  • Suspended Programs: One program is being suspended due to low applicant and low enrolment – Plumbing (St. Andrews Campus).  Suspended programs may be re-offered in future years pending further review.

Current students will not be impacted by these changes and will be able to complete their program as planned. 

“NBCC’s Recruitment team will work with future students impacted by these changes to help them identify other programs with available seats so that they can continue their plans to pursue an education at NBCC” explained Butler. 

As part of the 2018-19 Training Plan, NBCC moved the delivery of high school credit courses (formerly Academic Studies) to our Continuing Education unit, which specializes in part-time course delivery.

“This course-based, flexible delivery format will increase access for learners across the province while also enhancing NBCC’s ability to use our on-Campus seating capacity to respond to student demand and labour market needs,” said Butler.

With six campuses across the province, New Brunswick Community College (NBCC) is a provincially-recognized, public post-secondary education institution that produces skilled, knowledgeable graduates who are contributing to the Province’s socio-economic prosperity.  Find out more information on NBCC programs by visiting:
