Northern College COVID-19 Updates & FAQs

Northern College is planning for a full return to normal academic operation. This will mean on-site in person instruction, subject to the operational efficiency of programming by the Fall 2022 semester.

Northern College campuses are now open and are following all protocols for preventing the spread of Covid-19. 

On-campus learning and services are taking place for most of our programs that are traditionally in-person. Some courses continue to be offered online or through a hybrid form of delivery (combination of online and in-class activities). As we continues to monitor pandemic conditions and respond according to guidance from all appropriate government and health authorities, we will communicate any required changes to our programming.

Pre-Screening

All students, staff and visitors are asked to please continue with government screening before attending Northern College campuses. This passive screening is to ensure everyone is monitoring their symptoms before coming to a Northern College campus.

Continuity of Education Plan

As we return to studies in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we do so with the hope that studies can be conducted in a smooth and efficient manner. However, it is imperative that we plan for further disruption, given the dynamic nature of the recent rise in variant case, and the push to achieve community protection through vaccination.

To this end, Northern College presents this Continuity of Education Plan (CEP).

The plan will provide ready access to information regarding Health and Safety protocols in the event of further emergencies, information regarding the continuation of studies if face-to-face study is disrupted, and links to useful resources in the event of an emergency.
