Active Screening - iCent Mobile App

Northern has launched a mobile app (iCent) to assist with the active screening required to comply with local and provincial regulations to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. The app will serve as a one-stop guide to everything Northern College. It also allows the College to communicate with students and is also how we will be conducting COVID-19 pre-screening before approaching campus building entrances to ensure those coming to campus are clear to enter. These protocols are required for all on-site learning and activities.

Please download by searching for iCent in the Google Play Store on your Android devices or the Apple App Store for your iPhone.
