If you meet the entrance requirements for the program you have applied for, a letter of offer will be forwarded by email within approximately four to six weeks.
  3. Once the letter of offer is received, you will need to provide a tuition deposit of $10,000 to the College of New Caledonia representing one year of tuition based on six courses over two semesters. This money will be held in your name to cover your first year of tuition fees.
  4. After receipt of the tuition deposit, you will be provided with a letter of acceptance, receipt and official acceptance details. These documents will be emailed to you. The official Letter of Acceptance is the document you take to the Canadian Consulate office in your country. Applying for your study permit must be completed outside of Canada. This process often takes several months, so please apply for your study permit as soon as you receive your LOA.

Seats/courses will be allocated based on seat availability and receipt of a scanned copy of your visa or letter of confirmation from CIC. Kindly advise the Admissions Office at immediately upon receipt of your visa so we can confirm your seat and open online registration.

Failure to inform us of your visa prior to arrival may result in a deferral to a future semester.
