The Office of Student and Academic Services, in addition to providing registration services, addresses a wide range of student concerns, including admission to NSCAD, academic and personal advising, disability services, off campus and international programs of study, financial aid and scholarship awards, health and personal development, housing, and international student services. In addressing the extra-academic needs of students, the Office provides personal counselling, financial advising and assistance, professional referrals (e.g. psychological, legal, medical), international student advising, housing assistance, and career exploration resources.
The Office provides information about the programs of NSCAD to interested individuals and those considering applying to NSCAD. The Office also assists students in establishing their educational goals within the disciplines offered by NSCAD and in investigating further study options through Off Campus Study and Exchange Study. The Office also provides resources on a broad range of topics including national and international scholarships, internships, apprenticeships, and travel. Students are encouraged to visit the Office to discuss either their educational goals or the extra-academic concerns that arise during studies at NSCAD.
