  • Learn about college resources.
  • Receive information about programs and majors.
  • Meet one-on-one with a New Student Adviser
  • Schedule classes for the upcoming semester
  • Create an academic plan.
  • Learn to use online resources through the myCommNet system.

You are encouraged to register as soon as possible.

 New students may apply online though this web site or submit a paper application in person or via mail or fax. An application may be obtained from the Admissions Package page of this web site.

Students who have not earned college credit in English and math are required to take our basic skills placement test.  After you have applied to the college and have received your ID number, schedule the appointment on the NCC website, scroll over Admissions and click on Schedule a Placement Test.

Students who have earned an Associates Degree or higher may be exempt from the placement test. Have official transcripts sent to the Admissions Office to have credits transferred toward a degree or certificate, to have the placement test waived or to show prerequisites for classes to be taken at NCC.


Students who have taken the College Board SAT or ACT exam may be exempt from the English and/or math sections of the placement test.   Please check the NCC website for exemptions.  If you have questions about SAT or ACT exemptions, contact the Testing Center at 203-857-7070.

Upon completion of the placement test or test waiver, call the Counseling Center for an appointment to register. (203-857-7033).

If you were born after December 31, 1956, Connecticut State Law requires that all full-time (degree seeking and non-degree/non-matriculating) and part-time matriculating students enrolled in postsecondary schools be adequately protected against measles, mumps and rubella, and varicella (chicken pox).  Students must provide proof of 2 doses each of measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella (chicken pox) or show proof of the disease.

Payment is due upon registration. Payment is by cash, check or credit card (MC, Visa, or Discover). Students registering for fall may hold their classes with a deposit of just the registration fees. Please check with the Business Office each semester for the balance due date.

Please call the Admissions Office (203-857-7060) if you have any questions or are in need of any further assistance.
