NON-DEGREE - Personal Enrichment

Are You a Personal Enrichment Student?

Acceptance as a non-degree student means that you are not matriculated into a program of study and are not eligible for state, federal financial aid or loan programs. 

Personal Enrichment: you do not intend to earn a degree or certificate at NCC but rather plan to take one or more courses for personal enrichment, for transfer to another college or for professional growth. 

If you currently attend another college/university, and would like to transfer the credits back, please apply as a Visiting Student.
