Enrolment is the process of making you a fully-fledged NKC student. Below are the steps that we will take to enrol you when you come in at the end of August:
1.Meet your tutor and other students. We will ensure that post GCSEs, you will be entered into the correct level given your results. You can ask any questions and be given your lesson timetable
2. Complete enrolment forms and get information on term dates
3.Your enrolment information will be added to our student database
4.Pay your fees. If there are fees attached to your course you will need to pay these. If you require financial assistance with your payments you will need to have completed a Student Financial Support form prior to enrolment. – Find out more about eligibility here.
5.You'll have your photo taken for your new College ID card once you've had your form stamped. Your ID card will allow you access to the Dartford Campus turnstiles, learning technology facilities and printing facilities. It is also a form of identification whilst you are with us.
6.You'll then officially be a student at the College! Next step is the first day of term, congratulations and welcome you are officially now a North Kent College student!
