Fees and Policies

Fees and Policies

Please note we recommend that you not make any travel arrangements (ie: purchase airline or travel tickets) until you have confirmed that that sitting you chose has enough registrants to run. It is also recommended to purchase travel cancellation insurance. NCAS and Langara reserve the right to cancel sittings with low enrollment. NCAS has very strict rescheduling and cancellation policies, with significant fees attached. In case you need to cancel or reschedule your SLA/OA session, please ensure that you are aware of our policies by reading below:

The rescheduling fees and options vary for the Simulation Lab Assessment/Oral Assessment. Please read carefully, as the fees for rescheduling can be very steep. 

  • SLA Rescheduling Fee (more than 30 days before your scheduled assessment date): CAD $35 payable directly to Langara Colle​ge
  • SLA Rescheduling Fee (between 30 and 8 days before your scheduled assessment date): CAD $150 payable directly to NCAS, plus $35 payable directly to Langara College.
  • SLA Rescheduling Fee (less than and including 7 days before your scheduled assessment date): Forfeiture of entire original SLA fee, plus payment of full non-subsidized SLA/OA fee upon rebooking. Please contact NCAS directly at info@ncasbc.ca.
  • No-Show on scheduled assessment day: Forfeiture of entire original SLA fee, plus payment of full non-subsidized SLA/OA fee upon rebooking. Please contact NCAS directly at info@ncasbc.ca.

Cancellations and Ref​​unds

​If you cancel SLA/OA more than 30 days in advance of your scheduled appointment, you can apply for a refund by contacting NCAS at info@ncasbc.ca. Your request to cancel must be submitted to, AND acknowledged by, NCAS more than 30 days in advance of your scheduled appointment. An administrative fee of $150 will apply. No refunds will be available for cancellations that occur 30 or fewer days prior to your scheduled assessment. 

One-year Extension

You have one year to complete the entire NCAS assessment process from the date upon which the regulator or registry referred you. If you feel you will take longer than one year to complete the NCAS assessment process, please contact the appropriate regulator or registry to seek an extension. If the regulator or registry approves your request for an extension, NCAS will extend your timeline AND charge you $250.
