Welcome to NSCC.

At NSCC, you can keep your eyes on the prize. For some students, that means transferring to a four-year college or university after graduating NSCC to pursue a bachelor's degree. For others, it means training for direct entry into the workforce, or even changing careers. NSCC is committed to providing an excellent and affordable education, diverse and inclusive learning environments, and a focus on your success.
