Non-Degree Students are those who do not intend to pursue a degree or certificate at NCC but rather, plan to take courses for personal enrichment, for transfer to another college or professional growth. Students must complete an application for admission, provide required documentation and pay the application fee. Check out the Class Schedule for class availability, and select the semester for which you are planning on enrolling.
- Who HAVE BEEN ENROLLED at NCC within the past year from the start of the semester may register without re-applying. Check the Registration Information webpage for registration dates.

Once registered, non-degree students who wish to change to Degree-Seeking (matriculated status) must submit to the Office of the Registrar WITHIN 30 days from the start of the term any additional documentation required for the program they are seeking. Students should review the Program Requirements Chart for admission requirements
