North Shore Community College is making changes!

You can start your application today! As always, there is no cost to apply to North Shore Community College.

For Fall 2020, most of NSCC's courses will be virtual – including online, hybrid, and videoconference – to ensure our community's safety and maintain social distancing. Targeted courses that need to occur face-to-face on campus will occur predominantly in lab based classes, using social distancing protocols.
