Graduation

The Graduation Ceremony is the highlight of the college year. It is a day to celebrate your success, to look back on how far you’ve come, to consider your next steps, to acknowledge the people who have helped you along the way and consider how you might pay it forward. It is our honour to celebrate this day with you.

All guests are welcome to attend the ceremony and share your important day with you. There is no limit to the number of guests you can bring. Remember to join us after the ceremony for a reception.

If you are eligible to graduate this year, and are intending to participate in your graduation ceremony, please know that NIC will make a decision about the ceremonies within the next few weeks. Given the current COVID-19 situation, it may not be possible to go ahead as planned with the scheduled dates. Please continue to monitor your NIC email and FAQs listed on the website.

In the meantime, in order to receive your credential, you must complete the Application for Credential form and email it to forms@nic.bc.ca.

Once all of your final grades are entered by your instructor, your credential and complimentary unofficial transcript will be produced and mailed to the current address we have on your record. If this address has changed, please ensure you update it using the address change option through your myNIC account.
