Visiting / Summer Students

quad shotEven if you are enrolled at another college or university, courses at Northampton Community College can be an affordable and convenient way of completing required classes. The credits you earn here will transfer easily to your college. And taking a few courses during summer vacations could help you finish your bachelor's degree sooner, saving you time and money.

We're Open
Northampton has an open admissions policy, which means that if you have at least a high school diploma or a GED and you follow our procedures, you will be admitted to the college to register for classes.

The Basics
It all starts with Northampton's standard application form and a $25 non-refundable fee. Everyone wishing to take courses for college credit at NCC -- including all degree and certificate programs -- needs to take this initial step.

You can submit your application to the college's Main Campus Admissions Office, the Monroe Campus Enrollment Office, or right here online.
