Northern Lights College

Northern Lights College is an institution that provides post-secondary education to residents of Northern British Columbia. It currently has campuses and access centers in eight communities across the northern third of British Columbia, with Regional Administration located on the Dawson Creek campus. NLC has a working agreement with the University of Northern British Columbia.

NLC is a member of British Columbia Colleges (BC Colleges), a provincial group comprised of 11 colleges from throughout the Province of British Columbia. BC Colleges has a unique regional advantage and a long history of collaboration with industry, employers, communities and policy makers. This collaborative approach allows BC Colleges to graduate highly skilled workers who are equipped to support their families, build healthier communities and power the economy in all regions of British Columbia. 

Programs at NLC are designed to provide you with the opportunity to obtain the necessary classroom education, and supplement that with appropriate practicum or hands-on opportunities to make the successful transition from student to employee. You have a number of options, depending on your chosen career path. 

You can earn a certificate, diploma, or associate degree. Certificate programs are usually one year in duration. Diploma programs take two years. Associate degrees take two years of study (60 credits), and can be used to transfer to the third year of degree programs at provincial universities and university-colleges. Ensure the transferability of courses when making your educational plans. Some NLC programs are offered at specific campuses, while others are offered at more than one campus or delivered through one or more alternative delivery methods. 

NLC has video-conference facilities available at all campuses. Videoconferencing is utilized for a number of courses in different program areas. Some program areas are offered via online instruction, others through distributed delivery, and some through the use of mobile training facilities. As well, NLC has partnership agreements with several B.C. universities. These agreements allow for the direct transfer of credits earned at NLC towards degree and other programming.
