Admissions Standards

Admissions to Norwalk Community College is simple. You may Apply Online. We have forms that can be downloaded from our Application Package page, or you can come to the East Campus at 188 Richards Avenue and do it in person. In any case, we have tried to keep paperwork to a minimum.

NCC is an equal opportunity and equal access institution. Prospective students must complete placement testing, if necessary. Students who have completed English and/or math at a college level may be exempt from the placement test. If you have questions about placement testing, call the Admissions Office at (203) 857-7060.

If you were born after December 31, 1956, Connecticut State Law requires that all full-time (degree seeking and nondegree/non-matriculating) and part-time matriculating students enrolled in postsecondary schools be adequately protected against measles, mumps and rubella. In addition, beginning on August 1, 2010 all full-time and matriculating students, except those born in the continental United States prior to January 1, 1980, must provide proof of immunization against varicella (chicken pox). Students must have two (2) doses of each vaccine administered at least one (1) month apart to insure adequate immunization.

We need proof of high school graduation or GED accreditation if you are applying to an NCC certificate or degree program or if you are seeking financial aid.
