Senior Observer

Senior Observer Program 

Maintaining the health and safety of the NCC community is of the utmost importance and as such the College has implemented COVID related requirements that must be adhered to in order to enroll and participate in face-to-face classes. Currently there are daily COVID screenings, pool testing, risk attestations, mask and social distancing guidelines in place. All Senior Observers are required to review the current COVID guidelines at NCC Next before registering for face-to-face classes.

Senior Observers coming to campus must also establish access to the NCC portal in order to perform the various tasks required prior to coming to campus for each class meeting. Senior Observers participating in remote classes only will not be required to follow this protocol.

Nassau Community College invites Nassau County senior citizens to participate in the Senior Observer Program. This program permits Nassau County residents 60 years of age and older to observe credit-bearing courses, tuition free, on a space-available basis. Certain courses at the College are not available through the Senior Observer Program. Although senior observers are not graded or given academic credit, they must meet course prerequisites. While the program provides senior citizens the opportunity to observe a course, the actual extent and level of participation is at the discretion of the instructor. For general information about the program, email the Lifelong Learning Department at
