Enroll in a Day

First-time students are required to attend a Panther Advising Workshop (PAW) prior to registering for their first semester at NCC.

First-time college students are new students who have never taken classes at any other college or university. If you have taken ECE (early college experience) classes in high school, you are still considered a first-time student.

If English is not your first language or if you did not graduate from a U.S. high school with all four years of mainstream English (not ESL) classes, you will need to meet with the ESL department to determine your placement level and register for classes. ESL Sessions are designed specifically for English as a Second Language students.

If you are a continuing, readmit or transfer student, you can walk-in that day for in-person advising or secure your spot in advance at https://norwalk.edu/records/registration-sessions/

For more information about the Admissions process and how to apply, please visit the Admissions page.

Financial Aid Office personnel are available to assist students in all phases of the financial aid process and answer any questions pertaining to financial aid.

Norwalk Community College provides a variety of financial aid programs in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and jobs to eligible students. The amount and type of aid received is dependent upon the student’s financial need as well as annual federal and state allocations.
