FAQs

Information about registration will be sent to your NIC email address once your program deposit is paid. In most cases, students will be registered by NIC if they are in a limited entry program. An example of this would be carpentry. Students register themselves using Student Planning for open enrollment programs, like Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Fine Arts, Business and University Studies. If you are attempting to register using Student Planning, and are having difficulties, please call 1-800-715-0914 (toll-free in Canada).

Some ABE courses are continuous entry (they have a “C” in their course code) and are not eligible for registration online through Student Planning. Registration for these courses can be completed over the phone by calling 1-800-715-0914 (toll-free in Canada).

Students must select a section in order to register in a course. Planning a course will add it to a particular term in Student Planning, but it’s not possible to register for this course unless a section is also planned.

Please talk with an Educational Advisor if need to discuss a course substitution; email advising@nic.bc.ca or book an appointment online. Advisors can help manage this process, which could include a discussion with the department chair. Formal written approval from the Department Chair is required for this. 

You need to progress in your course work and program order to maintain financial aid. Grades may also have an impact on financial aid. Each instructor will outline their attendance expectation as part of their course outline. Please refer specifically to the criteria for online attendance and progression.
