Northern College revokes 200 January admissions letters


CBC reports that Northern College has revoked January admissions letters for 200 students. The college told CBC that it “felt it was prudent and responsible to pare down the number of acceptances offered to ensure that students have access to safe housing and the ability to find employment.” International Sikh Student Association President Jaspreet Singh called for government intervention, given that the college also rescinded 500 admissions letters in July. Students have reportedly been offered a deferral to next fall and a bursary toward tuition or a full refund.
