IMPORTANT: Students will not be considered properly registered and will not be admitted to classes until all tuition and fees required by the college have been paid.

Students who are participating in one of the various Financial Aid programs should take special note of deadlines for application and submission of required materials.

If a third party will be making payment toward a student’s tuition and fees, NCTC must have an agreement with the third party and all documentation/payment vouchers/authorizations must be submitted to the Business Office in advance (at registration) before the beginning of each semester. Lateness in submitting all required documentation may require such students to pay tuition and fees personally at the time of registration. Students will be responsible for any balance not paid by the third party.
