Where Are You Going?

For over 40 years, Northampton Community College has helped students of all ages and backgrounds answer one of life's biggest questions.

NCC is committed to quality, affordable higher education. We strive for accessibility, with courses scheduled at multiple campuses and locations during the day and evening, on weekends and online. You can choose from nearly 100 transfer and career programs leading to associate's degrees, certificates and diplomas.

At Northampton, we concentrate on excellent teaching. Our faculty really cares about your success, and they bring experience and firsthand knowledge into the classroom. Northampton's student services will support you as you reach for your goals. We provide an array of resources for all types of students: recent high school graduates, those returning to school after many years away, and adults starting college for the first time.

NCC's graduates find meaningful careers as a result of their education. Many go on to study at four-year colleges and universities in our region and across the country. They do well once they get there, and save thousands of dollars on the cost of an advanced degree.

We are also a mainstay in our community. Our non-credit programs include a robust menu of youth and adult leisure classes as well as professional development courses. Additionally, we serve the community through adult literacy and ESL programs.

Located 90 miles west of New York City and 60 miles north of Philadelphia in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA, Northampton is one of few community colleges to offer on-campus housing. In addition to its Main Campus, NCC also features a campus in the Poconos region and centers in several other locations.

Whether you know where you're going, or you are just starting to ask the question, Northampton is the place to start your journey. We invite you to explore our web site, visit our campuses, and become a part of our community.
