Step 2 - Apply For Financial Aid
If you have not completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), please plan on doing this as soon as possible. Once your information is processed, you will be able to view what kind of federal and/or state financial assistance you can receive to offset your education costs. Visit www.fafsa.ed.gov to start the process.
Step 3 - Send high school transcript and determine English and/or Mathematics placement
It is important that your placement level in English and/or Mathematics is determined before you meet with a Success Navigator to schedule your classes. Students should have their high school transcript sent to NCC for review. When placement can’t be determined using your high school transcript or SAT scores, placement testing may be required. If so, it is important to complete any necessary placement testing prior to orientation. Questions about your placement level can be directed to the Admissions Office at either campus, Bethlehem (610-861-5500) or Monroe (570-369-1800).
Step 4 - Complete your Online Orientation
Starting May 4, 2020 new students can begin their online orientation. Students can access the orientation through MyNCC, the online student portal. Information and instructions to log into MyNCC are mailed to students in their acceptance packet.
When the Preparing to Register orientation is complete students will meet with their assigned Success Navigator to develop an academic plan and be cleared to schedule fall 2020 courses.

Step 5 – Apply for housing if you will be living on campus
This is not required prior to orientation, but it is strongly recommended. Housing is offered according to date of application and discipline history. Therefore, it is important to apply to housing as early as possible. On campus housing is only available at the Bethlehem Campus.
