First Year Experience

First-Year Experience (NCTC 1001) is required of all first-time NCTC students, including former Dual Credit (earning less than 9 hours) and Early Admission students. The goal of the First-Year Experience course is to equip new students with information about college-level expectations, and knowledge of the NCTC resources which can help them have a more successful college experience. First-time college students are required to enroll in and complete NCTC 1001 during their first year of enrollment prior to completing 15 credit hours. Students that have earned more than 9 hours in dual credit are exempt from NCTC 1001.

Transfer students are required to complete an online Transfer 101 Orientation prior to the official date of record of their first semester of enrollment at NCTC.
