Next Steps for Accepted Students
You've applied and paid your application fee, and you’ve been accepted to NorQuest College. Here’s what you need to do next.
Note: See the Admissions Process for a detailed description of the full step-by-step application and admission process.
1. Carefully read any correspondence from NorQuest College
- Carefully read all communications from the Office of the Registrar, as there will be important information or deadlines requiring your attention.
- Login to your MyMail account and review your messages – NorQuest College uses your college email account as the primary means of communicating with applicants and registered students, so check regularly for messages.
- Check your MyQuest account – our online student centre provides real-time information on your admission status and To Do list. You can also update your personal information with any changes since your application was submitted. You may also email email@example.com in the Office of the Registrar to enquire about the status of your admission.
2. Meet with a student navigator if your are a foundational or preparatory program student
Students in Academic Upgrading, English as a Second Language, Apprenticeship Prep, Day Home Provider, Literacy and Essential Skills Pathways, and Transitions to Employment programs will need to meet with a student navigator to have admission eligibility and funding eligibility assessed. See the Admission Process for Foundational and Preparatory Programming for more information.
3. Submit any outstanding admission requirements
Complete and submit any items that may be required to fulfill any outstanding admission requirements as soon as possible. These items will be outlined on your To Do list and may include:
- Transcripts, or statement of marks or unofficial transcripts for conditionally admitted students
- Skills Assessments
- Non-academic admission requirements (see your program for details).
- Conditions outlined in withdrawal forms if you attended NorQuest College previously and had to withdraw (if applicable).
- Conditions outlined in conditional admission letters (if applicable)
- Conditions outlined in provisional admission letters (if applicable)
- Registering for the first course in a distance program before the end date of the term to which you have applied (if applicable).
4. Obtain a study permit or student visa (international students only)
You will need your Official Letter of Admission issued by NorQuest College to obtain a study permit or student visa for a program longer than six months. Contact the Canadian embassy or consulate in your home country for details, or check online at Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
5. Apply for financial aid, if required
Apply for financial aid, such as scholarships and bursaries, student loans, grant funding, Indigenous student funding, or other financial aid, to fund your education, if required. For more information, see Funding Your Education.
6. Accept our admission offer and pay your tuition deposit
A non-refundable tuition deposit or a sponsorship confirmation is necessary for applicants to confirm their attendance in a program and reserve a seat. If you delay your tuition deposit confirmation, you may find all seats filled. Once your deposit has been paid or sponsorship confirmation has been received, you will receive information on the process to register for classes. You may pay your tuition deposit through your MyQuest account.
- Canadian citizen/permanent resident deposit: Domestic applicants are required to pay a non-refundable, non-transferable tuition deposit of $200 CDN. The deposit will be applied toward the first term's tuition.
- International applicant (both in Canada and outside Canada) deposit: International applicants are required to pay a non-refundable, non-transferable tuition deposit of $500 CDN towards the first term's tuition.
7. Register for classes
Make sure you register in all the classes you want or are required to take. This process ensures that you will have a seat in your classes, so it is important. See Registration for more information.
8. Pay your tuition and fees
Full fees are due and payable by or before the first day of the term. Check your MyQuest account to view your outstanding balance and make your payment. For more information, see Tuition & Fees Payment.
Full or Cancelled Courses and Programs
What happens if you’ve been accepted, but your program is full?
If you have been offered admission to a program, but the program or funding quota has been filled by the time you pay your tuition deposit, you may have the option of changing to another delivery method or campus if it is offered and if seats are available. There may also be additional admission requirements for some deliveries. In order to investigate the option to change delivery method or campus, you must contact the Admissions and Transfer Credit Unit at firstname.lastname@example.org with a written request.
College Cancellation of a Course or Program
NorQuest College reserves the right to cancel courses or programs for operational reasons. When the college cancels a course or program, all college fees (including application fees) will be refunded.
