Student Records

Each individual student at NCTC is responsible for seeing that his/her records are kept accurate and up to date. If, after registration, students change their name, address, telephone number, social security number, etc., the Admissions/Registrar's Office should be notified as soon as possible of the change.

Students receiving financial aid should also be sure that their mailing address is up to date in the Office of Financial Aid. North Central Texas College will not be responsible for financial aid award checks, grades or other documents/correspondence not received or received late by students because of their failure to promptly notify the Registrar of an address change.
