All students are encouraged to take the one-credit NCC 101 course. Aptly named The College Experience, NCC 101 eases students’ transition to college by providing information about Nassau, as well as assistance in understanding the goals and expectations of higher education.
Sessions tend to be interactive, with students encouraged to work in small groups and to write weekly journals. Through NCC 101, first-year students are exposed to the College’s many resources — through presentations by guest speakers, visits to campus services and information about extracurricular activities.
In addition, the course covers such topics as learning styles, time management, degree requirements and the ins and outs of advisement and academic planning.
Most NCC 101 sections meet once a week throughout the semester. Some sections are offered on weekends or during the summer. If you’re interested in finding out more about NCC 101 email us!
