FIRST QUALIFIED, FIRST ACCEPTED (FQFA)
Northlands College is moving to the commonly used application process known as First Qualified, First Admitted (FQFA) for many of our Mining, Technical & Trades, and Health programs.
FQFA means the sooner an applicant meets the application requirements or qualifies, the greater the chance they have of being accepted into their chosen program. Application requirements may include completing an application form, having a minimum grade level and/or average and providing additional entrance requirement documents.
This application process means that many of our post-secondary programs can be filled prior to the application deadline, so please APPLY SOON.
Once accepted, applicants will receive an admission package which will outline the program readiness expectations and deadlines. This includes tasks such as applying for and/or securing funding, and can include responsibilities such as providing a criminal records check. All program readiness documentation will expected to be on file by the application closing date in order to hold on to a seat. Waitlists are maintained so that applicants who fail to meet program readiness expectations are replaced.
Applicants do not need to go through the process alone. Learner Services is here to help. Please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our Toll-Free number: 1-888-311-1185, if you have questions.
