Applying to Niagara County Community College is the first step toward achieving the goal of a high-quality education. NCCC  has an "open enrollment" admission policy to admit applicants who have graduated from an accredited high school or have a high school equivalency diploma. Students who have not completed high school will meet with an admissions advisor to discuss completing the high school equivalency at NCCC as well as other options.

Applicants who are accepted into the College must also meet any entrance requirements for the program to which they apply.

Applications to the College are accepted throughout the year until the semester begins, on a space available basis. Applications are considered on a first-come, first-serve basis (see curriculum information located in each program description), thus, early application is encouraged.

Note: Applicants with special circumstances (i.e. a felony conviction or a college dismissal for disciplinary reasons) must have their applications completed and submitted 60 days prior to the start of the semester.
