NBCC Moncton will be hosting an information session for grade 11 students (and their parents) who are potentially thinking about applying at NBCC for the September 2016 Academic Year.
Here are the details:
WHAT: NBCC New Admissions Process Information Session
WHEN: Wednesday, May 20, 2015 at 7 p.m.
WHERE: NBCC Moncton Campus Gymnasium – 1234 Mountain Rd., Moncton, NB
NBCC has adopted a new First Qualified, First Accepted admissions process. Through this approach, prospective students who meet the admissions criteria who apply first will be admitted first. First Qualified, First Accepted is about fairness, predictability and accessibility and is part of our commitment to learners. The process of ranking waitlisted applicants by marks currently in place for high-demand programs does not align with this principle.
What will these changes mean for prospective NBCC students?
- Waitlisted applicants will no longer move up and down a waitlist based on marks.
- Waitlisted applicants will no longer need to re-apply each year. Beginning in fall 2015, waitlists will roll over and waitlisted applicants will retain their position until seats become available.
- Waitlisted applicants who receive an offer of acceptance less than four weeks prior to the start of the program will have a one-time option to defer their application. This means they keep their original time stamp and their application is carried forward to the next academic year for the same program/location.
- New applications will be processed on a continuous basis for the next available program intake using the date and time stamped approach. As well, beginning June 1, 2015, early applications for grade 11 students may be submitted.
