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.
Over the years, the Honors Program has continually grown and expanded. Students have the opportunity to supplement their academic work with extracurricular activities.
Each Spring Honors students present their research in a simulated academic conference setting to Administration, Faculty, classmates, friends, and family. The Honors Colloquium is always one of the highlight events of the year.
The club organizes a wide variety of activities for students in the program and sends representatives to sit on the Honors Committee, the policy making body of the program.
Each year, Honors students take part in visiting a place of interest determined by the Honors Club. A typical visit might include a Broadway play. In addition, the Honors Club sponsors a topical speaker for the College community.
Honors students can attend the Northeast Region of the National Collegiate Honors Council (NRHC) Conference and make a presentation at this event. Presentations are based on a topic of interest to Honors faculty and students. The theme of the conference varies each year.
All students who complete at least 12 credits in Honors Courses are recognized at a special ceremony each May. Students are presented with certificates, official recognition on their transcripts, and a medallion to wear to graduation.
