    Tuition Fee Categories

    NWCC has four tuition categories. To determine what programs fall under each category see the Fee Categories table below.

    Category 1: Credit Billed Programs
    Students in these programs pay for courses by the credit.

    Category 2: Weekly Billed Programs
    Students in these programs pay fees based on the number of weeks to the end of the semester in which they are registered. Some programs have fixed intake and exit dates, some have continuous entry and exit dates.

    Category 3: Part-time Weekly Billed Programs
    Students enrolled in weekly billed programs less than 10 hours per week are assessed fees at 50% of full-time weekly billed programs.

    Category 4: International Fees
    Post-secondary studies are partially subsidized by the provincial ministries for Canadian citizens and landed immigrants. International students are not covered by the subsidies and pay a higher tuition as a result.  View our International site to learn more about applying as an international student.
