North Island College’s first-ever Parent Student Information Night will be held on Tuesday

Families invited to NIC parent night

North Island College is holding their first-ever Parent and Student Information Night in Port Alberni on Wednesday, Nov. 9.

North Island College (NIC) is making faculty, advisors and a $500 tuition credit prize available to prospective students and their families at its first-ever Parent and Student Information Night in Port Alberni on Wednesday, Nov. 9.

“This is your chance to get the answers and support you need to make the decision right for you,” said NIC director of student services and registrar, Kathleen Kuhnert.

“In one evening, you’ll meet NIC instructors, find out about scholarships and bursaries to help pay for college, learn how to meet the program requirements, and if you’re ready, apply into your program.”

The college will also share information about dual and guaranteed admission degree pathways with UVic, VIU and other BC universities.

The college’s UVic partnership guarantees high school and college students UVic admission while they study at NIC. The partnership could save arts, science, engineering and fine arts students more than $10,000 a year on tuition, rent and living expenses. Students are also eligible for scholarships and awards from both institutions.

However, the event is relevant to students in all program areas. Expert NIC faculty from a variety of programs will be available to talk about their field of interest.

“Sometimes students ask about which business program they should focus on or which trade has the best job prospects,” said Kuhnert. “This is their opportunity to learn from the business, health, industry and trades professionals who teach our programs.”

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

The information night is geared toward Grade 12 students and their families but all community members are encouraged to attend.

The event runs in the Port Alberni campus cafeteria on Wednesday, Nov. 9, starting at 6 p.m.
