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.

Consider a career as a Funeral Services professional

Trained funeral service professionals provide compassion and skilled, valuable assistance during a difficult time. NSCC’s Funeral Services associate degree program will prepare students for careers in the funeral services field. The new program combines classroom, laboratory and clinical training experiences according to the guidelines of the American Board of Funeral Service Education.
