Dr. Brian Inbody

Neosho County Community College

Welcome to the NCCC website and thank you for investigating our wonderful college. We know that you have many educational choices. When you compare what NCCC has to offer, you will see why more and more students are choosing NCCC.

Here is what students who have chosen NCCC say about us:

Great Programs

NCCC offers innovative creative programs that will help you get the job you need and to help you be successful in a bachelor’s degree program. Click here for a full list of the programs we offer. Our newest programs include: Health Information Technology, Occupational Therapy Assistant, Surgical Technology, Court Reporter, HVAC Technician and have added two Welding locations at LaHarpe and Ottawa Campus. NCCC boasts the largest two year nursing program in the State of Kansas. The Mary Grimes School of Nursing has the best reputation of any nursing program in the state, producing the best graduates. Our graduates rank #1 in the state among community colleges in employment after graduation, and #2 in the state in average salary! 

In transfer education, for those leaving NCCC to complete a bachelor’s degree, NCCC is in the top 3% of the nation in the percentage that graduate and successfully transfer on to a four-year college.  Our transfer students do as well if not better in junior-level GPA than students who started at the university as freshmen – that’s something we are very proud of!

Excellent faculty with small class sizes

Our programs are taught by some of the finest faculty members of any college. You won’t get 300-person auditorium classes taught by a graduate assistant at NCCC. Our average class size is 12 and our instructors are all degreed professionals with many years in their profession and in college teaching.  All instructors know our motto: Student success is our success. We are not successful as instructors unless you are as our student. Our instructors’ commitment to student success does not end when class is over. Our instructors were rated very high by the students on availability outside the classroom.

NCCC meets me where I am, and they care

To help students be successful in all academic areas, NCCC takes extraordinary measures to ensure student success. We have one of the finest developmental educational programs anywhere. In fact, a four-year institution asked us to provide their developmental education.

We have free, unlimited face-to-face and online tutoring for all students for any subject. The Chapman Learning Center on the Chanute campus and the Teaching and Learning Center on the Ottawa campus provide individual and group tutoring with extended hours. In fact, the Chapman Learning Center is open 24 hours a day.  We even have live, interactive online tutoring available!

So many choices on classes

We offer classes on your schedule, not ours. We have day, night, weekend, online, hybrid, short course,  four-week, eight-week, twelve-week, and sixteen-week classes. NCCC is in session 52 weeks a year. We will find a schedule that fits your needs.

Low tuition with lots of financial help available

There is no reason you can’t go to NCCC, no matter what your financial situation. With hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships, the book rental program, and low community college rates, there is a way for you to go to college. Many of our Neosho County residents pay absolutely nothing to attend our wonderful college.

A “real college” feel at a beautiful full campus

Many students chose NCCC because of the beautiful Chanute campus. Our Chanute site is ten buildings on 40 beautifully maintained acres. The suite-style resident hall is home to over 200 students. In Ottawa, the college has recently completed building an $8.1 million 52,000 sq ft campus on 27 wooded acres. The new campus features state-of-the-art classrooms and labs, a simulated hospital, and a Teaching and Learning Center. A virtual tour of both campuses is available here.

Plenty of things to do and ways to get engaged

There is plenty to do on campus, with a full range of sports, clubs, and activities on the Chanute campus and new clubs on the Ottawa campus. We have ten sports teams, 22 student clubs and countless student events scheduled each week to keep you engaged in a true college atmosphere. We have also, built an indoor practice facility.

Helpful, friendly staff

It all comes together with great people. Our wonderful staff is here to help you with each step along the way. From admissions, all the way to transfer and certificate completion, at NCCC, we will know your name, and we will give you the best service of any college anywhere.

There are lots of places to explore on this website. My staff and I look forward to talking to you about what your needs are and how NCCC can help meet them.

Go Panthers!
