College can be more affordable than you think.
Our college is dedicated to offering a quality education for less. We help students just like you afford college by providing access to Scholarships, Federal Aid, and State Aid.
Through the generosity of many, including the North Country Community College Foundation, we are able to offer the NCCC Opportunity Scholarship and a wide range of other scholarships as well as financial assistance every semester. Last year, over 85% of our students received some form of financial assistance, representing more than $6.1 million in student financial aid.
Our team is ready to help students like you navigate all of the available funding sources, so you’re not alone as you begin this journey.
