NCCC College Catalog 2024-2025

President’s Message


Welcome to NCCC and thank you for investigating our wonderful college. We know that you have many educational choices. When you compare what NCCC has to offer, you will see why more and more students are choosing NCCC, making us the fastest growing community college in Kansas over the past ten years.

Great Programs

NCCC offers innovative, creative programs that will help you get the job you need and to help you be successful in a bachelor’s degree program. Our newest programs include: Health Information Technology, Occupational Therapy Assistant, Surgical Technology, and HVAC with more programs on the way. NCCC boasts one of the largest two-year nursing programs in the State of Kansas. The Mary Grimes School of Nursing has the best reputation of any nursing program in the state, producing the best graduates.

Our transfer programs are unparalleled among community colleges. In fact, over 90% of our transferring students report that NCCC prepared them very well for their junior and senior level courses. In a recent study, NCCC transfer students ranked 1st in Kansas in junior level GPA at two state universities, often beating the native students who started at the university. For the second straight year the Kansas Board of Regents named Neosho County Community College as the highest percentage of successful students in the state, which either achieved their degrees or successfully transferred to another institution. CNN-Money rated NCCC as 32nd in the nation in student success among the hundreds of community colleges.

Our programs are taught by some of the finest faculty members of any college. You won’t get 300-person auditorium classes taught by a graduate assistant at NCCC. Our average class size is 12 and our instructors are all degreed professionals with many years in their profession and in college teaching. All instructors know our motto: Student success is our success. We are not successful as a college unless you are as a student. Our instructors’ commitment to student success does not end when class is over. Our instructors were rated very high by the students on availability outside the classroom to aide students to be successful.

NCCC Meets You Where You Are, And We Care

To help students be successful in all academic areas, NCCC takes extraordinary measures to ensure student success. We have one of the finest developmental educational programs anywhere. In fact, a four-year institution asks us to provide their developmental education.

We have free unlimited face-to-face and online tutoring for all students for any subject. The Chapman Learning Center on the Chanute campus and the Teaching and Learning Center on the Ottawa campus provide individual and group tutoring with extended hours. We even have live interactive online tutoring available!

We Offer Classes On Your Schedule, Not Ours

We have day, night, weekend, online, hybrid, short course, two-week, four-week, eight-week, twelve-week, and sixteen-week classes. NCCC is in session 52 weeks a year. We will find a schedule that fits your needs.

Low Tuition With Lots Of Financial Help Available

There is no reason you can’t go to NCCC, no matter what your financial situation. With hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships, the book rental program, and low community college rates, there is a way for you to go to college.

A Liberal Arts College Feel At A Beautiful Full Campus

Many students chose NCCC because of the beautiful Chanute campus. Our Chanute site is ten buildings on 40 beautifully maintained acres. The College has announced a renovation and addition plan for the Chanute campus that is fully underway. Chapman Learning Center and Rowland Hall have already received a $1 million update. In fall 2012 we opened a new softball complex, a renovated gymnasium, and improvements to campus parking. Our main classroom building, Stoltz Hall, received a $1.3 million update that began summer 2013 and ended summer 2014. This update features a new cadaver lab for the teaching of anatomy and physiology and other biology courses and an all-new chemistry/physics lab.

The suite-style residence hall is home to over 200 students and features a new 24-hour computer lab, and an online gaming lounge. In Ottawa, the college operates an $8.1 million, 52,000 square foot campus on 27 wooded acres. This campus features state-of-the-art classrooms and labs, a simulated hospital, and a Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) complete with individual and group study rooms. The TLC even has a cozy fireplace and an outdoor plaza for lounging and studying.

Plenty Of Things To Do And Ways To Get Engaged

There is plenty to do on campus, with a full range of sports, clubs, and activities on the Chanute campus and clubs on the Ottawa campus. We have ten sports teams, many student clubs and countless student events scheduled each week to keep you engaged in a true college atmosphere.
