Registration
 

Spring/Summer 2020 registration is open. Your date of when you can register will be posted in your Web Advisor in March. If you do not have a date posted in your Web Advisor, please email ece-ea-office@nlc.bc.ca

As of February 1st, 2018 - the deposit for your courses per each term is $250.00 (for 1-5 courses); this amount will save your seat in each course and also be applied to the full tuition amount. The remaining amount of tuition and fees is required to be paid by the first day of class or prior.

Your "Registration Opening" Date and Time will be posted on your Web Advisor - follow the 'step-by-step instructions' below.

Students should familiarize themselves with the Web Advisor system. Please refer to these step-by-step instructions on registering and paying for courses using Web Advisor. All continuing and new students will have specific registration dates and times given to them by the Registrar. You can find your date and time through your Web Advisor account; under Academic Profile – “When can I register?”. You can register for courses at that date and time (you can register at any time after this date until registration closes) If you do not see a date provided, please contact the ECEC/EA Office. For assistance in accessing your Web Advisor, go to Accessing Courses and Grades

PLEASE NOTE: Every Student must have a valid CRC on file with NLC prior to registering in their courses or adding their name to a waitlist. The CRC is now a prerequisite to courses in the ECE Program.
