Northampton Community College's mission requires it to "provide excellence, accessible and comprehensive learning experiences in partnership with the dynamic, diverse communities we serve" and, for many students, access is possible only through online courses provided through the Office of Online Learning (OOL).
Online courses are ideal for students who cannot participate in classes on campus but still want to further their education. Many students who take classes on campus use online courses to allow them to supplement their on-ground schedule with additional courses. The Office of Online Learning offers more than 300 sections each semester and over 160 courses online at NCC. Our online courses are not self-paced, but they are a flexible and convenient option for many students. All online courses are facilitated by an instructor, with regular instruction and participation so you feel like you are part of a class, but receiving individual attention.
