COVID-19 Information & Fall Plans

Getting Ready For Fall at NCC


NCC Fall 2020 Plans

Northampton Community College has announced its plans to open for the fall semester, offering classes in a variety of flexible formats that include on-site, online and as hybrid courses (combination of onsite and online). These formats are designed to give students more control of their learning, while placing an emphasis on health and safety practices to prevent spread of COVID-19.

Some online courses will meet regularly at set scheduled times each week, while others are self-paced with weekly milestones, allowing students to access classes online whenever best suits their schedules. Important student services, such as tutoring, counseling, and other functions, will be offered both onsite and online this fall.

To better accommodate students’ ever-changing lives that continue to be impacted by the pandemic, the College will delay the start of its fall classes to Monday, Aug. 31, one week later than the previously scheduled Aug. 24 date.

With this change, NCC is also extending the deadline for fall semester tuition payments to Sept. 1 (from Aug. 4) to give students as much time as possible to access financial aid and coordinate payment. Read full article
