About Us

Our History

While the roots of Nipissing University extend back to the 1900's with the North Bay Normal School, Nipissing University College was formed in 1967 as an affiliate of Laurentian University. Nipissing University received its charter as an independent University in 1992. Today, Nipissing is proud to be a primarily undergraduate university with a reputation for excellence in teacher education, arts, science and professional programs. Students will find themselves in a high quality academic environment that is student-focused and based on personal teaching practices, innovative approaches to learning, and a growing research culture. Nipissing is committed to playing a positive role in the educational, social, cultural and economic life in all of the communities it serves.

Graduate Studies

The mission of the School of Graduate Studies is to define and support excellence in graduate education at Nipissing University. To achieve this goal, the primary roles and functions of the School of Graduate Studies are to articulate a vision of excellence for the graduate community, to provide an inter-university perspective on graduate education, to enhance the intellectual and research community of scholars among graduate students and graduate faculty and to serve as an advocate for graduate education and graduate students within the institution.

This is a limited enrollment program. Admission is competitive. Consideration will be given to undergraduate marks as well as supplemental information required with the application. All applicants are required to provide at least three letters of academic recommendation from professors or other appropriate professionals who can speak to their level of preparation and readiness for graduate studies. At least one of the references must be from someone qualified to address the academic ability and competence of the applicant to undertake graduate studies. Reference cannot be from anyone who is personally related to the applicant. Admission With Advanced Standing Master of Education candidates may receive advanced standing for a maximum of two graduate three-credit courses completed prior to the time of application to Nipissing.
