One paid $200,000 for their education, and the other went to Nassau Community College and spent a fraction of that.

Do you know your major? Your life’s calling? Truth is, most high school students don’t. And that’s perfectly OK. What’s maybe not OK is jumping right into a four-year commitment — and paying out the nose for tuition — if you just might not be ready.
We help you identify your path, stay on your path, and achieve your academic goals. You’ll find your major. Maybe you’ll find your passion! Starting your journey at NCC is a pretty smart choice.
It’s not something universities advertise, but it happens all the time: Your intro courses are taught in large lecture halls. That’s OK for some people, but others prefer a smaller, more personal classroom experience. At NCC, we’re unique for a college of our size, offering smaller classes with more interpersonal interaction. And our faculty hold doctorates at twice the national average for community colleges! That’s a lot of wisdom teaching a diverse, eager-to-learn, highly motivated student body.
