NCC Learning Community


Are You...
• More comfortable learning with a group of friends
• Looking for friendly and approachable faculty
• Undecided about your college major
• Planning to transfer to a four-year college

You belong in the NCC Learning Community!

Convenient Scheduling
Take three classes at the same time with the same group of classmates

Class meets Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, when you are on campus anyway.

Worried about fitting it all in?
This Learning Community offers built-in time to connect with classmates and faculty.

What's in it for me?
You are required to take these courses anyway to earn your Associate of Arts degree or if you plan
to transfer...Why not take them at NCC in a Learning Community?

Faculty collaborate to plan your assignments so you don't get overwhelmed! Instead of writing a paper for English and another paper for Psychology you can combine your efforts and write just one paper for the assignment.

If you struggle in one subject you get the benefit of hearing information from multiple perspectives
from faculty and classmates. This allows you to make connections from subject to subject.
