Dual Credit Courses

 North Island College Courses



*Students may take any course at NIC as long as they meet the pre-requisites and the courses align with the students' career interests. Our goal is to support students as they transition into their next steps in life and gain knowledge and skills that support them transitioning into post secondary. 


Below are some courses that students may want to take. These courses are transferable to most other institutions and are commonly required for a student's first year at college /university.
