Admission Process for Northern Lights College


AdmissionsThe admission and registration information presented here is general. Individual programs may have specific requirements, which are usually outlined on the program’s page on the College website.

The applicant is responsible for ensuring that all admission prerequisites are met for the program to which s/he is applying, and for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of all Application and Registration documents.

Note: Admission into all programs at NLC is based on the order in which applicants successfully complete all admission prerequisites for the individual program. Many programs have a maximum number of seats available unless formal partnership agreements specify other arrangements; therefore, applicants are encouraged to complete any prerequisites and pay the required program deposit as soon as possible in order to improve their chance of securing a seat in the desired program.
Once a program is filled, a call list will be kept, in case additional seats become available.
