Standard Admission Requirements

To be admitted to NorQuest College, applicants must meet the admission requirements for the program to which they are applying. Specific admission requirements are listed with each program section of this calendar. For all programs, applicants are accepted on a first-qualified, first-served basis once their application and supporting transcripts/documents have been received and evaluated against their program's admission requirements.


Admission requirements are subject to change annually; please see for the 2015/16 admission requirements. Program admission requirements for 2016/17 will be published on the website in October 2015.


Applicants must be 18 years of age within the first semester of their program. If underage, the applicant must demonstrate suitability for the program and have written parental consent. Applicants for career programs must be 18 years of age before attending any work or clinical placements to comply with external workplace regulations. A mature student at NorQuest College is categorized as being 19 years of age or older. Mature students' official education transcripts do not have to indicate that a 'high school diploma' was earned, even if it is stated in a program's admission requirements, but must have completed the required academic admission requirements. Applicants under 19 years of age must meet the high school diploma criteria if stated in the program's admission requirements, and the academic admission requirements.
