Student Lines of Credit

A student line of credit is a great option for Canadian students with a valid co-signer. A line of credit is different from a loan because you take money out only as you need it and pay interest only on what you withdraw while you are in school.

 

RESP

Scholarship

NPC College of Arts & Design | Concept Design Diploma Program is committed to helping you fund your education by offering competitive scholarship opportunities from the day you begin your studies until you graduate.

Applicants to NPC Concept Design Diploma Program are automatically considered for the Scholarships once they complete their admissions requirements. Awards are based on the portfolio review and academic achievement of the applicant and can vary from student to student during the admission process.

Awards for fall 2020 applicants will be announced via mail and email. The successful candidates will receive their scholarship offer with their letter of admittance all together.

Medical Insurance Requirement

BC Medical Insurance is required by law for all students, international as well as Canadian, through the Medical Services Plan of B.C. Students from outside British Columbia and international students should apply for B.C. Medical insurance once arriving and establishing an address in BC. Coverage starts three months after the month in which you apply, so International students on visas should apply upon arrival and establishing a BC address. During the waiting period, your former insurance policy may cover you or you can arrange for private insurance through any broker for your first three months in BC.

Counseling

NPC College of Arts + Design does not have a qualified counselor on staff to help students with personal issues. However, Administration and/or Student Services can provide information on where to contact professional counselors and therapists who are qualified for such a service. The closest resources are listed below.

Do not hesitate to speak to your program’s department head or Student Services if you are going through a tough situation and would like to speak to a counselor. Any issues relating to mental health or personal obstacles that hinder your work will remain confidential.
