Welcome to the September 2012 information site for the Annapolis Valley Campus.
We are so pleased that you have chosen NSCC. If you have further questions, please contact our staff at Student Services.
MyNSCC provides all active NSCC students (in a credited full-time or part-time course, including apprenticeship) with real time access to key NSCC data. You're able to access your grades, financial information, personal demographic information, unofficial transcripts, weekly schedules, and also update your contact information (phone numbers, emergency contacts, email addresses).
Schedule 1 Student Loans can be signed starting August 21st. We will deduct tuition, student fees, health & dental insurance (unless you have completed an opt-out waiver (visit www.gallivan.ca for more information) and any other fees associated with your particular program (i.e. computer lease, exam fees, etc.).
Textbooks will not be ready for pick-up until mid-August. Textbooks can be deducted from your student loan and we will only do so if you are picking them up at the time your loan is signed.
Please note that you do not have to make a special trip to get your loan documents to us. You can drop them off at your nearest NSCC campus and they will forward them to us, or you can send them by mail to:
NSCC Annapolis Valley Campus

Students who request a parking pass to park on NSCC property or in NSCC-leased parking spaces are required to pay the annual $20 fee in exchange for a parking pass. It is important to note that a parking pass does not guarantee a parking space will always be available. Passes will be issued at the start of the academic year, and the $20 fee is paid when students pick up a new parking pass. The pass is effective from September 1, 2012 - August 31, 2013. If someone requests a parking pass later in the year, the cost will still be $20 - there is no pro-rated fee structure.
NSCC students, both full time as well as those ALP students taking 3 or more units, will be enrolled in an NSCC Student Health and Dental Plan that provides extended medical and dental benefits.
For more information see Student Health and Dental Benefits Plan.
The NSCC SA Executive works towards fostering mutual cooperation and understanding and is the core decision-making unit for NSCC students. The SA Executive will plan, organize or support activities, projects and services that support the growth and intellectual development of the student body and provide communication and understanding between the student body and the College.
NSCC Money Matters provides additional information about tuition, related student fees, the financial resources that may be available along with a budget worksheet which you can use to prepare for your studies at NSCC.
