Delivery of Assignments and Course Material

How to Submit your Assignments

Your instructor should provide you with instructions for submission of assignments. If your instructor is located at another campus, he/she may ask you to submit assignments through the internal mail. The University's inter-campus, internal mail is a courier bin service between the Prince George Campus and the regional campuses. Assignments being sent to instructors through the courier bins to Chetwynd and Dawson Creek will be delivered through Northern Lights College inter-campus mail. Assignments for Fort Nelson should be sent to Fort St. John where it will be placed in the mail. The inter-campus mail is centralized in Dawson Creek so please allow approximately three days for distribution of materials to these campuses.

Delivery Schedule
  • Course materials delivered through the courier bins will be picked up on a daily basis and delivered to the appropriate class. Please allow one extra day for distribution of materials on the receiving end.
  • Delivery service is overnight unless otherwise noted.
  • All mail arriving from outside the Peace River- Liard Region will be sent via the Prince George Campus courier to the Fort St. John campus and then delivered through Northern Lights College inter-campus mail or Canada Post to the appropriate campus.
