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?

Then… you belong in the NCC Learning Community!

Join us and you can:

  • Have convenient scheduling
  • Take three classes at the same time with the same group of classmates
  • Go to class on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings, when you are on campus anyway.

Worried about fitting it all in?

The Learning Community offers built-in time to connect with classmates and faculty. Instructors make sure that students connect and have opportunities to build relationships with each other through fun activities and learning. Class lectures and assignments are connected so that shared learned is reinforced in all classes. 

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?

Here’s how it works:

  • 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 write just one paper for a combined assignment.
  • If you struggle in a subject, you get to hear multiple perspectives from both faculty and classmates. 
  • You will help to plan and participate in fun Learning Community group events such as bowling, mini-golfing, and pizza!
