NCC is an equal opportunity and equal access institution. Prospective students must complete placement testing, if necessary.

High School / GED
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.
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.
At NCC, we hope and expect that your college experience will be exciting and rewarding. We are very proud of the education we have to offer here, and we feel that it is offered in a friendly and caring environment. Once you are here, you will have specific questions that can be answered by your teachers or by other students in your classes. But, to help you get started, we have included several links that may help you.
If you are thinking about attending NCC, but have not yet applied, Apply Online or download the Application Package. If you have filled out an application you will also need to include a Measles Vaccination form. You can download that form above as well.
If you already have decided to attend classes here, we strongly recommend that you attend Orientation. Our Orientation program will help familiarize you with the College and the location of your individual classes.
Re-Admit / Returning Students
Whether you have decided to return to finish your studies for an associate degree or certificate, or have decided that you need to refresh your skills in a chosen profession, we are glad to have you back.
If you have not registered for three or more consecutive semesters, excluding summer sessions, you must apply for readmission to the College. Students applying for readmission do not need to pay an application fee. In some cases, students applying to be readmitted to the College may be encouraged to take placement tests.
Proof of immunization against measles may be required, depending upon the student’s date of birth.
The catalog in effect at the time of a student’s readmission to the College, or any subsequent and superceding catalog, will govern that student’s academic status and graduation requirements.
