If you are a high school senior who has demonstrated the academic ability to tackle college-level classes, you can enroll at NCC through our Concurrent Enrollment program. Earn credits to get a jump start on college or to fulfill requirements for graduating high school.
- Visit your school guidance counselor to get approval to participate in Concurrent Enrollment.
- Meet with an NCC Admissions Officer on the phone or in person, to discuss your enrollment, course pre-requisites and any questions you might have.
- Download and complete the appropriate Concurrent Enrollment application form. You will need signatures from a parent or guardian; a guidance counselor or principal and the Superintendent of your school district.
- Complete the Northampton Community College application form. Submit the form to NCC's Admissions Office online, by mail or in person, along with a $25 fee.
- Request that an official copy of your high school transcript (with SAT and/or PSSA scores if available) be sent directly from your high school to NCC's Admissions Office.
- You may need to take the Northampton English or Math placement tests if you are taking a class with a pre-requisite that is not satisfied by the SAT or PSSA.
