All North Central Texas College (NCTC) campuses are limiting the numbers of people on campus as we continue to closely track the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and follow state health and safety guidelines. NCTC Testing Services are offered by appointment only.

Everyone entering the campus must enter at the main entrance door and be screened with temperature checks.


Face Masks are optional while you are on campus. We strongly encourage anyone who is not fully vaccinated to wear face masks or face coverings while on campus and in the presence of others. Appropriate use of face masks or coverings is essential to minimizing risks to yourself and others near you, though it is not a substitute for social distancing.
