Information for International Students

We hope that this message finds you well, considering the challenges we are facing around the globe. COVID-19 has reached into every corner of the world, affecting all of us. Here in Canada, the federal government formally closed our borders to all foreign travelers on March 18. This decision was not taken lightly and is a move shared by dozens of other countries to help limit the spread of those infected with this easily transmitted virus. As a result of a new set of international circumstances, Northern College’s May 2020 intake is cancelled. If you are a student who has already paid your tuition fees for May 2020:

• your admission will be moved/deferred to the September/Fall 2020 semester, and,
• your updated offer letter will be sent to you, and
• a receipt of your payment will be sent to you shortly.

Those who have not yet fully enrolled in programs are encouraged to do so for the Fall 2020 semester, a change that will be reflected on International OCAS. The College has formally closed all four of our campuses to the public and suspended all on-site teaching and face-to-face education. Northern College students are now learning remotely thanks to modern learning techniques and the efforts of our faculty. We at Northern College understands that this is a difficult time for everyone, including you, our students.
