In accordance with the Campus Security Act of 1990, North Shore Community College is required to publish and distribute an annual security report containing campus security policies and procedures as well as campus crime statistics. The information is posted annually and notification of the information's location on the website is included annually in the Handbook for Students and sent directly to all students via their college e-mail account. Applicants for admission may request copies of the report from the Campus Police or visit the Campus Police page of the College website for an electronic version.

The Student Right to Know Act also requires NSCC to disclose to all enrolled and prospective students statistics on the graduation rates of undergraduate students. This information is drawn directly from the National Center for Education Statistics Website and is updated every year as new information becomes available:

All information pertaining to the Student Right to Know Act is communicated to all students each term, via email from the Dean of Students. The Student Handbook contains reference to The Student Right to Know Act, and directs all students to this website for greater detail.

Voluntary Frameworks of Accountability:

North Shore Community College participates annually in the Voluntary Frameworks of Accountability.  VFA is a national metrics model developed by the American Association of Community Colleges.  This model is designed specifically for community colleges to more accurately report the successes of community college students, who are more likely to attend college on a both a full and part time basis over a longer period of time while working, caring for family members, and supporting themselves.

Voluntary Frameworks of Accountability Results

These data represent students who first entered the college in the Fall of 2013 (or the summer before) and their progress by the end of six years.  As the majority of NSCC students enroll part-time, this is a more complete measure of success than the IPEDS graduation rate.
