Institutional fees include the Comprehensive Fee and Technology Fee which support student and instructional services and are charged to all students; and the Capital Outlay Fee which supports capital costs and is charged only to residents outside of the sponsoring Northampton County PA school districts. Residents from the sponsoring Northampton County PA districts do not pay a Capital Outlay Fee as their portion is funded by their sponsoring school district
Application Fee $25 non-refundable fee due with your application to the Admissions Office
Admissions Deposit Full-time students, excluding Allied Health students who pay a $200 fee, must pay a $50 admission deposit. Part-time students in selected programs will also be charged the $50 fee, which will be applied to tuition and fees for the first enrolled semester.
Academic Course Fees Selected courses may require an additional fee to cover the real cost of materials and services used. These fees are listed in the course schedule. Some computer license fees are non-refundable after the official semester start date.
Audited Courses Students choosing to audit a course pay the same costs associated with taking a course for credit. The Records Office should be notified that the course is being audited.
Challenge Exams Fee for challenge exams (to receive academic credit by examination) is 50% of the in-county tuition rate (tuition only - no fees), regardless of the student's residency. If the student passes the exam, they will receive academic credit for the course; if the student fails the exam, they will receive a refund equal to 50% of the exam fee paid.

Senior Citizens In-county residents who are 65 years of age or older qualify for a tuition and fee waiver for credit courses (noncredit does not qualify for a waiver). The waiver must be requested by the student at the time of registration. A valid PA Photo ID or PA Driver's License is also required.
Collection Costs and Fees Collection Fees (120+ days delinquent) range from 33% to 43% of total balance referred to collection plus additional legal costs and fees associated with collecting the outstanding balance. Pre-collection service fees (90-120 days delinquent) range from $10 -$90 per account based on the account balance.
Library Fines Past-due materials will be billed to the student at their replacement cost plus late fines and fees. Delinquent amounts are referred to a private collection agency where additional costs will be applied and become the responsibility of the student. Materials will no longer be accepted by the library for accounts that are in private collection and such accounts may only be satisfied by full payment to the collection agency.
Parking Fines $10 to $25; $10 additional late fine if not paid within 10 days
Payment Plan Fees $35 Per Semester Enrollment fee; $25 Per Month Late Payment Fee
Reinstatement Fee Students who do not pay their tuition and fees by the tuition due date risk being dropped for nonpayment at the college's discretion. Students who are dropped and re-register in classes will be charged a non-refundable reinstatement fee of $10.00 per credit hour, payable in full upon reinstatement. All credit hours added at any time during or after the reinstatement period will be charged this fee, including credit hours in excess of the original registration. The fee is non-refundable and financial aid cannot be used to pay for this fee.
Returned Check Fee A $25 charge plus collection costs and fees will be charged on each returned check. After the college has received two returned checks, future transactions must be made in cash or by certified bank check; personal checks or credit cards will not be accepted. Returned checks of any nature do not cancel your financial responsibility.
Sponsorship To Attend NCC
If your home community college does not offer your program of study, you may be eligible for sponsorship from your home community college and/or resident school district to attend NCC at a reduced rate.
Allow enough time for your sponsorship request to be processed. A letter of approval signed by an authorized school official must be received by the NCC Bursar's Office two weeks prior to the tuition due date to confirm your attendance at the sponsored rate and should include either payment or billing instructions.
Sponsorship is determined by your local school district and/or your local community college according to their respective rules of eligibility:
Community College of Philadelphia - 215-751-8354
Harrisburg Area Community College - 717-780-2300
Lehigh-Carbon Community College - 610-799-2121
(LCCC) has two sponsoring school districts who participate in the sponsorship program:
Currently sponsored students from other LCCC districts who maintain LCCC eligibility requirements have been grandfathered for a period of time as determined by their sponsoring district.
Northampton Community College does not match or provide funding nor does it waive any portion of tuition and fees for students sponsored to attend NCC.
