Covid-19 Update

APRIL 2, 2020

The Province of Saskatchewan is still operating under a State of Emergency, and continues to focus on flatlining COVID-19 occurrences in Saskatchewan. North West College continues to follow the direction of the Chief Medical Officer of Saskatchewan, our health authorities and guiding Ministries as we respond to the ongoing coronavirus/COVID-19 situation.  At North West College, the health and safety of our staff and students remains our top priority.

As such, all North West College employees and students will continue with their current alternative working and learning arrangements until further notice. NWC campuses and computer labs will continue to be closed to the public. Classes will continue to be offered through online and alternate delivery methods.

North West College staff are working remotely and messages are monitored on a regular basis during the College’s regular hours of 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday.

North West College is working collaboratively with our Institutional partners and the Ministries to determine alternate assessment options for programming. North West College students will continue to be notified directly by college staff regarding alternative assessment options and program adjustments. 

If students need more information, we encourage them to contact their instructor or Coordinator directly. We want to extend our appreciation to all of you as we navigate these new circumstances together.
