  2. Drop in. Register at your local campus. Pay with credit card, debit card, or cheque. Post-dated cheques are not acceptable.
    Note: Sponsoring agencies and employers may fax an authorization to invoice for student registration. The authorization to invoice must be accompanied by a Field School Application form. 

Course Cancellations
A minimum number of students are required to run field schools. If that number is not reached, NWCC reserves the right to cancel a field school. Every attempt is made to notify you in advance. A full refund is processed automatically unless you notify us that you wish to register for another field school.
We do not call registered student to confirm that a field school is running. Students are ONLY contacted if the field school is cancelled. Check you registration statement carefully for course dates and time, and refer to this page for more info on fees, withdrawals and our refund policy.
Registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis upon full receipt of tuition fees at the time of registration. If a field school is full, your name is placed on a waitlist. Those on the waitlist will be contacted and registration will be confirmed upon full receipt of tuition fees and the 20% deposit.
Should a space become available in a course (due to student withdrawals or another reason) the person whose name is first on the waitlist will be contacted. If that person cannot be reached the next person on the list will be contacted. 
Fees, Withdrawals & Refunds
Full refunds are made only if a field school is cancelled by the College or if the student withdraws from a field school for a documented medical or bereavement reason before the start of the field school. Withdrawals and requests for refunds are administered as follows:

  • 100% if NWCC cancels the field school
  • 100% refund of deposit &/or fees if someone from the waitlist takes your place
  • A deposit of 20% of field school fee is due at registration
  • Full fees MUST be paid in their entirety 2 weeks prior to field school start date

Field school activities, sites, and dates may be changed due to weather or other environmental occurrences beyond the control of NWCC. All efforts will be made to provide a comparable field school experience should any itinerary change be necessary.
