PARTL Application Process

Refer to the following for a brief description of each category and a link to the respective application:

The Part-Time and Additional Courses Application is to be used when applying for an individual course(s) or adding courses to your current course load. For example, if you need to re-take a course in your program you would use this application. All course pre-requisites must be met.

NOTE: If seeking courses only delivered in the first term of a program, the majority of the time you will need to apply to the program through College Admissions Service to access a seat and will not be able to use this application process.


Applicants wish to sit in on classes for general interest or as a refresher. No credit or transcript is awarded, individual does not participate in class, write exams, or receive marks. No documentation is required for auditing a course.


Applicants are returning full-time to a program in which they have previously completed at least the first term.

NOTE: It is imperative that once a Re-Entry application has been approved, the student needs to meet with the Academic Department to confirm they are full-time (this is especially important if the student intends to apply for a student loan).


Applicants are current students that want to:

  • transfer to a different campus (same program), or
  • transfer to a different program (same campus). The programs must have common courses. For example, Business Administration: Accounting to Business Administration: Marketing


Applicants will have studied at NBCC previously and exempted, successfully completed, or be in the process of successfully completing, at least the first term of a different program where the courses are common. This application is also available to those students applying with advanced placement/standing. Click here to view a list of our full-time programs and confirm the program you are considering has an advanced placement option.

NOTE: It is imperative that once a Late Entry application is approved, the student needs to meet with the Academic Department to confirm they are full-time (this is especially important if the student intends to apply for a student loan).
