International Students

Are You Interested In Applying As An International Student?

This application is for an applicant who wishes to obtain an F1 visa or status and maintain it to study in the U.S.  If you wish to study at NCC with an F1 visa or status, you can proceed.

Please note that you are not allowed to attend school with a B1/B2 visa. If you are currently in the U.S. with a visa other than an F1 visa and would like to change your current status to an F1 status, you must contact the Office of International Education for an appointment first. Please call 516.572.7053 or email us at isaoff@ncc.edu for an appointment.  Once you are determined to be eligible to apply for a change of status, you can proceed with this application.
