NSCC offers over 75 courses you can be enrolled in via e-Learning format. You can even earn a certificate or an associate degree at the e-Learning Campus. The main reason why e-Learning courses always fit into your busy life is their flexibility and convenience.
E-Learning instruction is delivered through media (DVDs, videotapes, or audiotapes) or the Internet, and you talk to your instructor and classmates by phone or online. A number of courses have online discussion boards for enhanced interaction. As there are no regularly scheduled classes, you complete course assignments and requirements at home.
For some individuals taking an e-Learning course can be academically challenging because most of the work is done on an independent basis. This requires a major time commitment to read print materials, become familiar with audio-visuals, prepare assignments, complete projects, and take examinations.
Most students rely on some form of financial aid to help pay the cost of attending NSCC. Here we offer such types of Financial Aid as: Grants, Loans, Scholarships, Veterans’ Benefits, and Work-study.
Career Services helps students search career options that lead to the selection of an appropriate program of study and work together with graduating students and alumni to locate and create satisfying work opportunities.
