Application and Payment Procedures
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an application for admission to Northern Lights College. Once you have completed your application, you can either send your application and your transcripts to email@example.com or by mail. All applications must be accompanied by the application fee of $100 CAD. You may pay this fee using your credit card (Visa or MasterCard), by sending a money order, or by bank transfer (for bank transfer details, contact firstname.lastname@example.org).
Once we have received your application, transcripts and application, our director reviews your documents to determine eligibility. If you meet admission requirements, the director will authorize a Letter of Acceptance. If you do not meet admission requirements, the director may make a determination of whether or not to authorize a conditional acceptance.
We understand that it is essential to work quickly, so we will send the Letter of Acceptance (if applicable) within one business day of receiving all of the necessary documentation and the fee.
The student then must take the Letter of Acceptance to the Canadian authorities in their country to start the processing of the Study Permit.
With the Letter of Acceptance, you will receive an invoice outlining the costs of your education at Northern Lights College. In it, there will be a fee schedule. This schedule must be strictly adhered to.
