Learning happens inside and outside the classroom. We offer a service, called Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), which assesses the skills you already have and awards credit where applicable.
There are two ways you can be awarded a credit towards your program:
Have you completed courses at NBCC or another college or university? If so, let us help you transfer credits to your program.
Credit transfer is granted when it is determined that a previously completed course meets 80% of the competencies and the outcome of the respective NBCC course. The scope, depth, and level of learning must match that identified in the stated competencies and outcomes.
Credit equivalency acknowledges learning that has been achieved through experience. This may be achieved in a variety of ways including a combination of formal learning (college/university courses), informal learning (workshops, seminars, industry specific training), and/or experiential learning. Where several formal courses are combined to meet the competencies and outcome of one course, course equivalency is also granted.
All documentation must be submitted in English.

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.
