An important part of the application process is to share your full educational history. Before we can confirm your admission, NVIT must receive official transcripts (an official record of your grades) from high school or other educational institutes you have attended. An official transcript is one that is sealed and sent directly from the institution to NVIT. Transcripts faxed directly from another institution to NVIT are acceptable.
BC High school transcripts can be requested from the high school, school district office, or the Ministry of Education.
Supporting Documents and Transfer Credit
Some programs require other supporting documentation be included with your application. Details of the supporting documents that are required can be found under program information on our website or in this calendar. If you are uncertain about any of the requirements or need more information, please contact Admission and Registration Services for support. http://www.nvit.ca/contact/index.htm or at 250-378-3300.
If you have attended another college or university you may have some courses or credits that are transferable.
To have previous course work evaluated for transfer credit, complete and submit the ‘Application for Transfer Credit' form to NVIT. Include your official transcript from the college or university attended. Allow 6-8 weeks for your transfer credit request to be processed.
If the transfer credit you are requesting is not part of a transfer agreement on bctransferguide.ca, you will also need to attach course outlines for the courses you are seeking transfer.
Should you require assistance with this process, please contact NVIT’s Academic and Financial Planning services.
After You Apply at NVIT
You will receive a letter by mail from the Registrar’s Office advising of your application status by way of one of the following two types of letters:
a) Conditional Offer Letter
You will receive a conditional offer letter if any proof of admission requirements for your program of choice is missing. The missing requirement(s) will be outlined in your conditional offer letter. If you are uncertain about any of these requirements or need more information, please contact Admission and Registration Services for support. http://www.nvit.ca/contact/index.htm
b) Full Offer Letter
Once you have met or satisfied all admission requirements, you may receive a full offer of admission letter. This letter confirms that all of the admission requirements have been met and assures you a seat in the program. You can accept this invitation by registering in the required courses when you receive an “Eligible to Register” letter.
What comes next?
C) Eligible to Register Letter
Once you receive an ‘Eligible to Register’ letter, you may register in your courses.
When you receive your ‘Eligible to Register’ letter you will be provided instructions to register on-line through NVITConnect. If you are uncertain about how to register on-line or need more information, please contact Admission and Registration Services for support. Students who do not have internet access and cannot attend campus in person can register by phoning Admission and Registration Services at 1-877-682-3300 (toll free).
Note: An accepted application does not mean you are automatically enrolled in your classes.
Searching for Classes at NVIT
You will need to use NVIT’s user friendly database, NVITConnect, to search for course offerings.
Note: You do not need to be a student to search our database for courses, sign into NVIT Connect as a guest and search the database to review the course schedule.
Offers of admission will be made based on the order in which applications are completed (all required documents are received). Therefore, particularly for programs with high demand, applicants are encouraged to apply and provide all necessary documents as early as possible. Students who may be eligible for transfer credits are also advised to allow at least 8 weeks from the time the application is completed for these credits to be evaluated.
Fall Application Review
If seats are available, applications will be accepted until the program starts. However, applications received less than five weeks before the start of the program may not be processed in time for the start of classes.
