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.

First Year Experience Learning Communities consist of two courses, linked together by a common theme or topic. Each learning community gives you a unique opportunity to examine a subject or issue of interest to you and explore the connections between courses.

Learning communities professors are excited about working with students who are new to the college and will support your transition to NCC. Students in a learning community register for both courses and attend these classes with the same students. Class activities and assignments are structured to allow students to work together, learn together and get to know each other.
