Niagara County Community College.

A Message from the President, Dr. James P. Klyczek 

Dr. James P. Klyczek, President

Niagara County Community College is ready to welcome you and support your efforts to improve the quality of your life through a vibrant education. Our website provides descriptions of NCCC’s programs and services and specific directions for your enrollment process. However, words on a page can’t adequately describe the intangible benefits that add to the reasons why NCCC is truly the "Smart Place to Start."

NCCC has one focus—you. When you succeed, we succeed as a college and the community improves. A Niagara County Community College education opens the door to opportunities in the workforce or easy transfer into four-year schools.

We provide outstanding faculty teaching in classrooms equipped with up to date technology. Since our student to teacher ratio is approximately 17 to 1, you can expect personalized attention. A recent endowment ensures that our library includes the latest instructional materials and technology to enhance your research.

The college experience extends beyond the traditional classroom and so NCCC continually looks for ways to improve the extra-curricular activities and support services offered to students. Diverse accurately describes our student body and therefore our clubs and organizations.

Keeping the needs of our students in mind, we have invested more than $19.3 million dollars in apartment-style, on-campus housing, marking the first new building on campus since 1973. Additionally, to address the needs of the ever burgeoning hospitality industry, the Niagara Falls Culinary Institute opened in September 2012 in the former Rainbow Centre in downtown Niagara Falls. This 26 million dollar project features a student operated full service restaurant, pastry shop, New York Style deli and wine boutique in addition to a Barnes & Noble bookstore.

We provide all of this at a cost designed to allow access to a higher education even for those who thought it would be impossible. Explore our college through this website and a personal visit to the campus to discover all the ways in which NCCC can benefit you!
