Online courses are classes in which the course content and instruction are delivered
entirely through the web using the learning management system, Blackboard Learn.
Note: Students may be required to take proctored midterm and final examinations.
Students who have been admitted to NCC can register for online and hybrid courses as part of the normal registration process. Most students will be able to register through the Student Information and Registration System (referred to as “MyNCC”).
Academic advisement information will be sent through NCC email accounts in advance of the time to register. The registration priority window is based on earned credits and gives students with more credits the opportunity to select courses before students with fewer credits. It is imperative that students register as soon as they are allowed, before the next credit priority begins, as course availability will become restricted.
Individuals who have never attended NCC may apply as a Degree, Non-Degree or International Student.
Students in online and hybrid courses must have access to a computer which has a connection to the Internet. The computer can be a PC or a Macintosh. Recommended web browsers are Firefox and Chrome.
The Blackboard App is also available for quick access, allowing students a way to
connect to online learning through a mobile device. The Blackboard App can be used
to perform simple tasks such as viewing course content and participating in discussions.
However, it cannot be used to perform all the required functions of an online or hybrid
course and does not replace the need for a computer.
Blackboard, the online learning management system, provides the instructor with a
wide variety of features including discussion boards, announcements, web links, and
