Guest Students

If you are currently a student at another college, plan on taking credit courses at NCC to transfer back to your full-time school, and do not intend to obtain a degree or certificate from NCC, you are a guest student. Though guest students may take classes during any semester at NCC, guest students typically enroll in our summer (6 or 10-week) or winter session (4-week) classes.
