NON-DEGREE - Visiting Student

Are You a Visiting Student?

Students who are matriculated at another institution may, with the permission of their home institution, study at Nassau Community College for up to two consecutive semesters, while still maintaining matriculated status at their home college.  

Acceptance as a Visiting (Non-Degree/Non-Matriculated) student means you are not pursuing a degree or certificate program at NCC.   However, under a consortium agreement, visiting students may take a course at NCC and have those courses count toward their degree or certificate at their “home” school and receive financial aid for them.

A consortium agreement permits a student to attend another institution while receiving financial aid from their “home” school. The “home” school is where the student is matriculated in a degree or certificate program. Students may not receive financial aid at two schools for one academic period. It is important to speak with your “home” school’s financial aid office about the steps to receive financial aid for the coursework taken at Nassau Community College (“host school”)

You can also check the status of your application, go to myncc. You will need your NCC Student ID which will be mailed to you. Your password is your date of birth (mmddyy)
