Not everyone has easy access to a college classroom. The constraints of time and location can make attending classes difficult, but College of the North Atlantic (CNA) may be closer than you think! We provide web-based online access to College credit courses as well as certificate and diploma programs.

Each year, learners from 300 Newfoundland and Labrador communities access more than 200 online courses and programs available through our online learning service. We have also provided service to learners in every other Canadian province as well as to those in the international community.

Our online learning environment provides flexibility as well as ample opportunities to collaborate and interact with instructors and other students. Our friendly, responsive Team is dedicated to establishing and maintaining high standards of academic quality and service that you can rely on. All of our online courses carry the same credentials and academic standards as their classroom equivalents.

At College of the North Atlantic, we are all learners.


Below you will find some media and resources to help with your transition.
