University description (as per official university website)
Established in 1924 under the leadership of Texas community college pioneer
Randolph Lee Clark, North Central Texas College is the oldest continuously operating public two-year college in the state. From its roots as a small, rural "junior" college — an extension of the local public schools actually — NCTC has grown and matured into a comprehensive, full-service community college of truly regional scope, serving students from three major campuses located across its three-county service area.
Statement of Mission & Purpose
The mission of North Central Texas College is established by state statute (Texas Education Code, Section 130.003) which governs public community colleges. In accordance, North Central Texas College is a two-year institution primarily serving residents of Cooke, Denton, and Montague counties by offering technical and academic courses for certification or associate degrees; continuing education; remedial and compensatory education consistent with open-admissions policies; and programs of counseling and guidance. The College insists on excellence in all academic areas, instruction, research, and public service. Faculty research, using the facilities provided for and consistent with the College's primary functions, is encouraged.
Each student who is eligible will be offered a "package" containing a combination of grants, and/or student employment. A student cannot be packaged for financial aid until his or her financial aid file is complete. The student's file is not considered to be complete and cannot be evaluated until the Student Aid Report and all other requested documents have been submitted.
Deadlines: Students should have financial assistance application and requested documents submitted no later than June 1 for the Fall semester, November 1 for the Spring semester and May 1 for the Summer semester. Failure to do this will result in a delay in receiving financial assistance.
