Important Update due to COVID-19

Because of the changing nature of the current COVID-19 health crisis and the uncertainty of when current provincial and federal guidelines and legislation related to COVID-19 will end (ie. social distancing, restriction of groups 5 or larger, etc.), Nipissing University is unable to guarantee when its entire North Bay campus, including classrooms, residence services, libraries and cafeterias will resume regular operations and be open to the general public. As suchacademic programming for the summer-based Indigenous Education Programs will be delivered using online learning systems.

Specific details for each program will be made available through this website. These details will include specific schedules for the upcoming academic year as well as provide information on supports and resources that will be made available to students in our various programs to facilitate the transition to online learning.

We deeply appreciate your continued support during this difficult time. Please know that the entire Nipissing University community of support staff, administrators and faculty are working hard to prepare enriching and engaging programs so that your individual goal of becoming an OCT Certified teacher or an educational assistant will begin this summer!
