exclamation IconNCC Fall Semester

For the Fall, under the guidance of State and County officials, and placing health and safety first, NCC will provide the majority of courses that can be instructed remotely or online in this format. Courses that have critical components and require face-to-face instruction, including classes with lab components that cannot easily be replicated remotely, will be instructed on-campus in a face-to-face format following appropriate health and safety guidelines and procedures to maintain the safety of the NCC community.

Electives for Liberal Art Majors

The liberal arts programs at NCC require 64 credits, including electives. The number of elective credits you need depends on your major (AA or AS) and how you fulfill your other attribute categories.

  • Any credit-level course can be counted as a general elective.
  • If you have completed the requirements for a specific attribute category and take additional courses within that category, they will be counted as elective credits.
  • If a course does not fit into any required attribute category, it can only be counted as an elective.
