SECTION 6
PRIOR
LEARNING
RECOGNITION
(PLR)
NBCC recognizes the
value of prior learning from
formal education, learning
that happened outside the
classroom, or a combination
of both. The Prior Learning
Recognition service
identifes and assesses the
learning and may award
academic credit.
Credit Transfer allows you to
receive formal recognition
for courses you have
successfully completed at
other recognized post-
secondary institutions.
There must be a match
of 80% of the course
competencies for credit to
be granted. Applications
for credit transfer must be
accompanied by an offcial
transcript of marks and
detailed course outlines.
Documentation must be
provided in English.
Credit Equivalency
acknowledges adult
learning gained through
work and life experiences by
assessing the knowledge,
skills, and abilities acquired.
Formal credit may be
granted for the learning that
resulted from experiences
that are comparable in
level and content to the
curricular outcomes of a
specifc course or program.
You may be asked to
demonstrate that you
have the knowledge, skills,
and abilities, provide a
learning outcome paper,
or successfully complete a
challenge exam.
PLR may help you get your
diploma or certifcate from
NBCC faster by reducing the
number of courses you need
to complete. That could
mean a lighter course load,
giving you more free time
or opportunities to explore
other courses.
Start the recognition
process early! If you have
previous education or
work experiences that
can be transferred to your
program of choice, visit the
Student Success Centre at
the NBCC location nearest
you, or contact the Offce
of the Registrar by email at
registrar.services@nbcc.ca
for more information.
Applications for credit
transfer must be received by
the Offce of the Registrar
no later than three weeks
after the class starts. Your
student fnancial account
must be in good standing
for the assessment process
to begin.

measure their knowledge
through online tests, or
simply conduct research on
the internet.
The L.I.V.E. program
is based on two basic
principles:
• Provide enhanced access
to learning
• Ensure NBCC students are
trained using technology
relevant to their future
workplace.

be required to provide
an updated medical/

this requirement may take
some time. You are advised

medical/immunization
requirements.

Students are responsible for
the cost of vaccinations and
blood tests, if applicable.
CRIMINAL RECORD CHECK
Host agencies also require
students to provide a current
criminal record check and/
or vulnerable sector check
from a recognized police
service in order to be

not pardoned may be
prohibited from proceeding
to a work placement. It is
the student’s responsibility
to ensure that he or she is
eligible to participate.
You can obtain the

SECTION 10
STUDENT
HEALTH
AND
DENTAL
PLAN
The Council of Student
Executives of New Brunswick
Community College held
a successful referendum of
the students to establish a
Health and Dental Insurance
program. This plan provides
extended health and dental
benefts for each full-time
NBCC student.
The plan is mandatory for all
full-time students in regular
programs 20 weeks or more.
Part-time students are not
covered under the plan.
The benefts plan costs
$245 for 12 months of
coverage, $122.50 for the
health plan and $122.50 for
the dental plan.
You will have one
opportunity to purchase
family coverage for your
spouse and/or dependant(s)
by completing an application
form, submitting it to the
on-campus Student Benefts
Representative and paying
the family coverage fee.
Students who are new to the
plan will have a validation
period of between 45 and
60 days. During this time,
benefts can be accessed,
however, claims must be
held until after the validation
period has passed. After
the validation period, new
students are activated to
the plan. They may use
their drug card and submit
any manual claims for
reimbursement.
We recognize students may
have alternate health and
dental insurance coverage. If
you already have comparable
extended coverage, you must
apply to waive or opt out of the
plan by September 26, 2014
and January 23, 2015. Provincial
health plans are not considered
comparable coverage, as they
do not include all the beneft
categories included in the
student plan. To opt out of the
plan, you can complete the
waiver form either online at
www.mystudentplan.ca/nbcc
or you can complete the form
manually and send it with proof
of your alternate coverage to the
Benefts Offce.
