Welcome to North Shore Community College!

Whether you are a prospective or current student, community member or someone looking for workforce training or to change careers, North Shore Community College is the place for you. We are student and community driven and stand ready to help you achieve your academic hopes and dreams.

If you have the will, we have the way.

For nearly 60 years, NSCC has provided excellent education that is affordable, accessible, and committed to creating an inclusive, safe, and diverse student-centered environment. It’s this commitment to our students that makes us special and earns NSCC national recognition for providing flexible adult learner opportunities, access to higher education for low-income students, excellent online coursework with support, and, as a proud military-friendly college

We have two vibrant campuses and terrific faculty and staff who foster success in the classroom while helping prevent barriers from becoming obstacles to accessing higher education. NSCC offers generous financial aid and support, including advising, tutoring, career exploration, veterans’ resources, accessibility services, opportunities for first-generation students, student life experiences and so much more. Online learning options let you choose a classroom or virtual setting or a combination of both. 

We are in a region with such a diversity of promising learners, from high school age through adulthood, who have bold dreams and the determination to achieve them. As the newest President of NSCC, of all the community colleges I could have joined, this one represented the most compelling opportunity.  Not only does NSCC have a long history of success for its students and the communities it serves, it is also uniquely positioned to take that work to the next level in the particularly challenging environment of the 2020s.  

I encourage you to explore our website to learn more about all the college has to offer. We look forward to meeting with you here on campus or virtually to help you begin your academic journey at North Shore Community College.

If you have the will, we have the way.
