Charges for Room & Board

Rental charges for on-campus housing during a regular long term (Spring or Fall) at NCTC include a mandatory Meal Plan which provides 14 meals per week for the duration of the semester. Serving of meals included in this plan begins the first day of classes and ends with the Friday noon meal of the last week of each semester.

Meals are prepared and served by a privately contracted food service company, and menus are planned to give students good nutritionally balanced meals at the most reasonable price possible.

NOTE: As of this catalog's publication date, the NCTC Food Service is open Monday breakfast through Friday lunch only. Students living on campus should be prepared to eat elsewhere on Friday evenings and weekends-either in town or in their rooms. Kitchen facilities are provided for student use on each upstairs wing of Bonner Hall. Students are allowed to have small refrigerators and microwaves in their rooms in both residence halls.

Application Fee
A $150 nonrefundable application fee is required in advance to be considered for a room in either residence hall. The College Board of Regents reserves the right to adjust college housing rental/meal charges in accordance with operational costs.

Background Check
In an effort to ensure the safety and security of the Residence Halls at NCTC, the department of Residence Life institutes a background check. All students wishing to be considered for housing will be required to submit a background check from their home state; international students do not need to submit a background check form. In order to keep costs down for students, the background check must be performed by the student in their home state. Students with any convictions or pending charges for a Felony, Class A Misdemeanor, or Class B Misdemeanor, will not be eligible to live in the residence halls. For information on how to request a background check in Texas visit the Housing and Residence Life website at

Bacterial Meningitis Vaccination
During the 2009 Texas Legislative session, House Bill 4189 (HB 4189) was passed and signed into law. HB 4189 requires that any incoming new student who lives on campus must either receive a vaccination against bacterial meningitis (10 days prior to move-in) or meet certain criteria for declining such a vaccination before they can live on campus. Students who are living on campus will be required to provide verification of vaccination against bacterial meningitis or provide a signed affidavit declining the vaccination.

Resident Assistants
Both residence halls at NCTC employ student Resident Assistants (RAs) to help the Coordinator of Residence Life with security, supervising the facilities, providing resident assistance in emergencies, etc. The residence halls are staffed with an appropriate number of RAs in direct relation to the number of residents in the building. Compensation is given in the form of a free private room and meal plan. To apply, contact the Coordinator of Residence Life at (940) 668-4259.

The NCTC Police Department provides direct supervision of security personnel, policies and procedures, and, along with other College officials, reserves the right to forcibly remove any student from the campus who poses an immediate threat to the health and safety of the college environment.

Should a resident have any maintenance requests they need to submit them to the RAs or to the Coordinator of Residence Life, so that they can be addressed by the maintenance department.
