Confirmation of Registration

International students who have obtained their visa approvals and reported their visa approvals via OCAS IAS (where you submitted your application to us) will be registered in the order that the visa approvals are received.

It is very important that you upload a copy of your visa, not passport registration, through the portal as soon as possible, otherwise we cannot proceed with your registration.

Once you are registered, your Confirmation of Registration (CoR) letter will be sent to you through email.

This letter includes all the required information such as:

  • Tuition fee payment information for the first semester,
  • Your Northern College email address,
  • Your Student Portal account information and Blackboard login

This is your enrollment letter to get through the Canadian Border when you arrive in Canada. The college will NOT issue any other enrollment letter to you until you arrive on campus. Only students who received the CoR letter are permitted to travel to Canada for their studies.

International Student Health Insurance Insurance

Every international student whose study status is “registered” or “enrolled” (or who have received the “CoR” letter) will be insured by the Morcare International Student Insurance plan (mandatory), which is equivalent to OHIP (Ontario Health Insurance Plan).

You will receive your international insurance certificate after day 10 of the semester.

You will be required to pay any medical bills out of pocket before you receive your health insurance certificate. These medical expenses can be claimed for reimbursement through your Morcare account once it is activated. Be sure to keep your receipts.

Insurance coverage begins 30 days before the start of the semester.

Family Insurance: You may select the family plan within 30 days of the effective date of your insurance plan. The family plan will not be accepted if the member does not opt in their family within the 30-day period.

Please contact Morcare by logging in to your secure account at


Please note: You will be charged the full rate of the health insurance plan regardless of the semester that you begin your studies.
