Northeast Texas Community College

Northeast Texas Community College (NTCC) is a community college serving the Northeast Texas region. The campus is set on 375 acres in rural Titus County near the community of Chapel Hill, approximately seven miles southeast of Mount Pleasant, the county seat.

As defined by the Texas Legislature, the official service area of NTCC comprises the following:

History

In January 1984, the voters of Camp, Morris, and Titus counties approved a community college district for the area. The campus (centrally located among the county seats of Daingerfield, Pittsburg, and Mount Pleasant) and facilities were quickly chosen and constructed – by the fall semester of 1985 the first classes were held.

As a relatively modern campus with all new construction, NTCC has managed to keep all its buildings of uniform appearance – all buildings are constructed of earth-tone brick with copper-tone metal roofs.

NTCC is governed by a seven-member Board of Trustees. Three members are from Titus County, and two members each are from Morris and Camp counties.

Educational Offerings

As with other community colleges, NTCC offers basic core courses which can lead to Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degrees, and/or transfer to four-year universities, as well as Associate of Applied Science degrees and certificates which allow students to immediately enter the workforce. NTCC also offers concurrent enrollment options for high school juniors and seniors.

Two-year associate's degrees are offered in the fields of agriculture (NTCC operates a large demonstration farm across from the main campus), business administration, computer and information sciences, cosmetology, criminal justice, dental hygiene, emergency medical services, auto body repair, medical assistant, medical laboratory technician, physical therapist assistant, radiological sciences, mechanical power technology, nursing, and office technology. One-year certificates of competency are offered in many of the fields listed above.

NTCC students may obtain bachelor's degrees from Texas A&M University-Texarkana in the fields of teacher education and criminal justice, while taking all classes at the NTCC campus. NTCC and Texas A & M University at College Station have entered into an articulation agreement to provide a seamless transition for students who completed the Associate of Science Degree in Biomedical Science at NTCC to a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biomedical Science at Texas A & M. NTCC students must complete the A.S. degree with a 3.6 GPA, with no grades below "B" in science and math.
