Application Processing

You may fax your application and accompanying paperwork to (306) 862-3651 or mail it to:
Enrollment Department:
Nipawin Bible College, Box 1986, Nipawin, SK S0E 1E0

NBC will begin processing your application once all of these steps have been completed. Within one week of receiving your application, NBC will mail you a letter acknowledging that it has arrived in our office. The amount of time needed for processing the application will depend on how quickly your transcript and references follow your application, but normally you can expect it to take between two weeks and two months. In mid-summer you will be mailed a package asking you to submit a criminal record check and to commit to live by NBC’s Community Standards. You will also have the opportunity to apply for bursaries if we receive your application before August 15. Several scholarships are available—click here for more info.

If you need help at any time during this process, call 1-888-862-5095 or email and someone will be able to answer your application-related questions.


You will need to have three people provide a reference for you: your pastor/youth pastor, a Christian friend, and a teacher or employer.  Family members and/or significant others will NOT be accepted as references.

If your references prefer to fill out a paper copy, you can download and print the PDF version below.  Simply give the forms with a stamped envelope to each of your references and remind them to mail those to the college as soon as possible so that your application processing is not held up.
