Namibian College of Open Learning (NAMCOL) Entry Requirements

For entry into secondary education programmes, proof must be provided that the learner has passed the same or a
similar subject at a lower grade or standard. This applies to enrolment for both JSC and NSSC learners. The National Examinations, Assessment and Certification Board (NEACB) of Namibia under the auspices of the Ministry of Education, Arts and Cullture (MoEAC) has laid down requirements for registration to sit for the Grade 10 (JSC) and Grade 12 (NSSCO) examinations. Accordingly, admission to courses offered by the College are subject to admission requirements as set out by the NEACB. According to the NEACB guidelines, JSC (Grade 10) first-time takers are not allowed to take more than three subjects with NAMCOL. A re-sit candidate is, however, allowed to enrol with NAMCOL for up to six Grade 10 subjects. Similarly, NSSCO (Grade 12) first-time takers are not allowed to enrol with NAMCOL for more than three subjects. Re-sit NSSCO learners are permitted to enrol for more than three NSSCO subjects per year. Since NAMCOL`s courses and the national examinations are heavily subsidised by the government, it is our policy NOT TO enrol learners who do not meet the requirements of the NEACB and such leaners are thus not allowed to sit for the examination. The following documents are needed for

• Proof of identity (Namibian ID OR passport, NAMCOL Learner ID, birth certificate)
• ORIGINAL certificate of your highest educational qualification or ORIGINAL statement of results for the most recent examination you sat (certified copies of the above documents are NOT acceptable)
• Payment in full of subject fees (in cash or by money order)

• Study permit for all foreign nationals*
• One passport-size photo
• Statement of Entry for 2003-2015 (applicable to learners who enrolled with NAMCOL during the 2003-2015
academic years).
*Foreign nationals should contact the Ministry of Home Affairs or the regional offices for advice on
the processing of study permits.
