NIC will also share information about dual and guaranteed admission degree pathways with UVic, VIU and universities across BC.

The college recently renewed its UVic partnership guaranteeing high school and college students UVic admission, while they study at NIC. Students save $10,000 a year on tuition, rent and living expenses and are eligible for scholarships and awards from both institutions.

The agreement applies to arts, science, engineering and fine arts students interested in attending UVic.

However, faculty from every program area – from business to fine arts, nursing, tourism and trades and technology programs will be ready to talk about programs and courses they are passionate about.

“Sometimes students ask about which business degree they should focus on or which trade has the best job prospects,” said Kuhnert.

Advisors will also be available to answer application questions, as well as provide information about scholarships and funding opportunities.

The information night is geared toward Grade 12 students and their families, but any community member can attend. The event runs in NIC’s Stan Hagen Theatre at the Comox Valley campus, on Tuesday, November 17, starting at 7 p.m. For more information, contact Lori Boray at 250-334-5267.
