Register for our PSC courses!

Registration and payment information

Course registration is done via our website, and online course registration remains open until one week into the course or until the course reaches maximum enrolment (30 participants), whichever comes first. Tuition is due at the time of registration and can be paid via credit card through our secure website.

Registering with accessibility services

PSC Students requiring accommodations will need to provide documentation about their disability from a recognized health-care professional. This documentation will be kept in confidence and used solely to assess requests for accommodations. This information is maintained separately from the student’s academic file. CCNM accessibility services determines the eligible accommodations, and provides the student with a letter outlining the approved accommodations for PSC course. A copy of this letter is provided to the Office of Academic Affairs, who assists in facilitating the stated accommodations. Students will also need to provide a copy of the letter to their instructor(s). To access the appropriate documentation, please contact

Course dates

Courses are also offered in a format that allows students to complete three credits in an condensed eight-week period. Given the condensed nature of the courses, students should expect to reserve a minimum of 10 hours per week per course to complete the online learning modules, assessments, and tutorials. Students planning to take more than two prerequisite courses simultaneously are advised to consider their other weekly commitments, including work or other obligations prior to registration.

Course format

All prerequisite science courses (PSC) are now offered in a blended online format which includes both online structured learning modules and live webinar classes/tutorials with the course instructor once per week. Online modules are accessible at the start of the course via our online content management system, and live tutorials take place one evening per week from 7:30 - 9 p.m. EST per course. Assessments include completing online modules, virtual labs/assignments, quizzes, a midterm exam, and a final exam, as outlined in the course descriptions.

Academic policies

Students enrolled in prerequisite sciences at CCNM are bound by the student code of conduct as outlined in the CCNM academic calendar.

ND program admission

Students may be given preliminary admission into the ND program prior to completing their prerequisite sciences courses. However, prerequisite sciences courses must be completed prior to the start of the ND program. Completion of prerequisite sciences courses does not guarantee admission into CCNM's Doctor of Naturopathy degree program.

Exam resit policy

Exams dates are provided in the yearly prerequisite calendar and in the individual course outlines. Exams are scheduled within a 24-hour timeframe, and if you miss this official 24-hour window, you may schedule a resit exam within two weeks of your missed exam for a fee of $75. If you miss your scheduled resit time you will be required to provide a medical note as well as an additional $75 to schedule another resit. You have only one attempt to write your exam and it must be completed within two weeks of the end of the course.

Course withdrawal

Once an applicant confirms attendance in a course(s) by submitting the required tuition, the following withdrawal/refund policy will apply:

Students who withdraw from one or more courses must send written electronic notice to The refund will be calculated based on the date of notice received. If nothing is received, the last date of attendance will be the effective date of withdrawal and will be the date used to close out the student’s account.

Withdrawal notice received
- Prior to the second week of course:
One hundred per cent (100%) refund minus a $100 administration fee per course.

- After the second week of the course:
When a student withdraws after the second week but prior to the scheduled midterm week, the refund will be the course cost minus a $100 registration fee and any earned tuition.* Refunds will be calculated based on the date that written notification indicating the intent to withdraw is received by CCNM. Students withdrawing prior to the midterm will receive a grade of “W” on their transcript.

- After the midterm
After the midterm exam, no refunds will be awarded. Withdrawal after the midterm will result in a grade of “F” on their transcript.


*Earned tuition will be calculated on a course-by-course basis using the following formula:

Total Tuition x (Number of Weeks Attended/Total Number of Weeks of Classes) = Total Earned Tuition

Course transfer

Please note that we do not transfer enrolment from one PSC course to another. Those wishing to transfer will need to withdraw (see course withdrawal/refund) and re-enrol in a subsequent course.
