Welcome to NSCC.

North Shore Community College welcomes international students and is committed to providing an inclusive, proactive, and empowered culture where diversity is a guiding value.

How to apply and enroll

North Shore Community College is closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) and is working to determine the best path forward as we continue to assess the impact of this outbreak on our campuses and students.

As we continue to monitor the effects of the outbreak and how it impacts the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) and immigration policies, at this time, NSCC has made the decision to not accept new international student applications nor will it be issuing I-20's until further notice.

However, we will start accepting international transfer students looking to transfer their I-20's from another U.S. instituion to North Shore Community College for the Fall 2020 semester starting on May 15, 2020.  International transfer students may email completed applications along with supporting documents to info@northshore.edu.

 International Transfer Student Timeline for Fall 2020 Acceptance:

  • May 15, 2020: Application submission opens up
  • Friday, August 28, 2020: Deadline to apply and transfer current I-20
