NCC Fall Semester
For the Fall, under the guidance of State and County officials, and placing health and safety first, NCC will provide the majority of courses that can be instructed remotely or online in this format. Courses that have critical components and require face-to-face instruction, including classes with lab components that cannot easily be replicated remotely, will be instructed on-campus in a face-to-face format following appropriate health and safety guidelines and procedures to maintain the safety of the NCC community.
NCC ACCESS is a Nassau Community College affordability initiative that delivers your required course materials to you on or before the first day of class. The charge is posted directly to your NCC Account as a Book Charge and can be paid along with your other College charges. The tuition and fees charges are offset by any financial aid and loans you may have been awarded. View all tuition costs and fees.
All NCC courses are participating in NCC ACCESS and you are automatically opted in. You will receive an email approximately a week prior to classes beginning that will explain how to access your materials. By participating in NCC ACCESS, you will receive a digital, rental or physical copy of your course materials on or before the first day of class.
NCC ACCESS provides both digital and physical materials to students, depending on the instructor's adoption (textbook and course material choices). The adoption may include course supplies if the instructor deems the supplies necessary for the course.
Digital materials are provided to students directly through Blackboard on day one of class. Online access to the ebooks is available on nearly any device and in any space. Some ebooks can be downloaded directly onto a tablet or laptop. On the other hand, if a professor chooses to use a physical textbook, students are notified via email to pick up their book at the bookstore. Further instruction is provided below for picking up materials.
With NCC Access, all students can have the course materials they need on the first day of class, stress-free and effortlessly – which levels the playing field for all students, regardless of their financial situation. It’s about reducing student stress and increasing preparedness so our students can succeed.
With NCC ACCESS, Faculty can enjoy the academic freedom to choose the content provider, edition, and course material type that best fits their class curriculum. Everyone in class will have the same edition on day one — allowing instruction to start right away.
Follett troubleshoots and provides instructions for accessing materials so faculty members won't need to serve as tech support for digital course materials.
