NBCCD SA Health & Dental Plan
The NBCCD Student Association (SA) Health and Dental Plan provides extended health and dental coverage for all full-time students under the age of 65. Students must be covered under a health and dental plan while attending the College.
The NBCCCD SA health and dental plans are effective from September 1 to August 31 of each year.
For the 2022-2023 academic year, the NBCCDSA health and dental plans costs are as follows:
Health and Dental: $418
If students are covered under a different plan (eg a parent’s or spouses employee plan), they will be required to opt out of the NBCCDSA plan and provide adequate proof of coverage to studentbenefits.ca by the opt out deadline of September 19. If students do not opt out, they will receive coverage through the NBCCDSA (Campus Trust) and will be charged fees. Students may opt out of the health coverage, the dental coverage, or the plan in its entirety during the opt out period.
The opt out date of September 19 is strictly enforced.
For more information please contact Campus Trust at: 1(800) 563-1930

Students in need of food or financial assistance are encouraged to contact the college counsellor, learning strategist, registrar, or speak to their advisor for assistance in exploring alternative funding options and provide financial relief where possible. All requests are confidential.
Student Nutritional Accessibility Program (SNAP)
Throughout the academic year, the Student Association and the College provide a regular supply of non-perishable food items, bread, snack foods, hygienic supplies and household essentials for students that need them. Students can also join the Community Food Smart Club to order fresh produce every month at affordable prices.
Contact the Student Life Coordinator for more information.
Students with Disabilities
NBCCD is committed to providing an inclusive environment for all students. Effort is made to provide students with documented proof of disability equitable access to programs, facilities and services in a timely manner. NBCCD’s Disability Services team includes the College Counsellor and Learning Strategist. They work collaboratively with students and faculty to ensure implementation of proper accommodations that provide necessary support, preserve academic integrity, and safeguard student privacy.
New students requiring accessibility services should identify their needs to the College Counsellor upon confirmation of admission. Early intervention is critical in providing a barrier-free learning environment and supporting student success.
Current students with disabilities who have not self-identified are encouraged to contact the College Counsellor or their Academic Advisor at their earliest convenience.
The Disability Services team can also provide guidance regarding various benefits available to students with disabilities, and can assist in applying for programs available through Student Financial Assistance.
All students are covered by Worksafe NB if they are injured while engaged in an activity related to, and included in their program curriculum. Students must report to administration to complete the appropriate Worksafe NB form when injured, even if the injury seems trivial.
