Welcome to Northern Lights College.

Since 1975, NLC has been empowering the residents of northeastern British Columbia with the finest educational opportunities the North has to offer.

Over the past 40 years, NLC has grown from a single campus to five campuses and three access centres, serving generations of families in the Peace Region, and beyond, with a diverse range of programming in Trades and Apprenticeships, Academic and Vocational, and Distance and Online Learning as well as Workforce Training and Continuing Education courses.

As a Northerner, I am proud to be a part of the educational, economic and cultural transformation that is taking place throughout our campus regions and in our local communities. It is an exciting time to be living, training, and working in the North.

There is an incredible amount of opportunity in our region, which is why at NLC we believe no matter where you come from, you can train in the North and achieve the career you want in the North.

As you explore what NLC has to offer you through this website and our College Calendar, I encourage you to ask us questions. With over 30 full-time programs, there is wide range of options from which to choose. Our student recruiters, admission officers, and program chairs are here to help you decide what educational pathway is best for you.

Whatever your educational goal, it can be achieved with perseverance. At NLC, our faculty and staff believe that your post-secondary achievements mirror our success as an institution. Our instructors are dedicated to helping you improve your life by teaching curriculums that prepare you for rewarding careers.

I encourage you to take advantage of everything NLC has to offer – competitive tuition, affordable student residences, smaller class sizes, and blended course delivery through face-to-face instruction, video-conferenced classes or online courses. Our students work hard, and also have fun by participating in the many on- and off-campus recreational activities that our student associations create.

Congratulations on choosing Northern Lights College for your post-secondary studies. The credentials you earn at our College will continue to reward you for the rest of your life through pride of achievement and recognition of your hard work.

We look forward to working with you to achieve your educational goals.
