In 2005 the college purchased a tract of land in Coppell, Texas as the site of a satellite campus. The campus is to be called North Lake College - North Campus. The future location's far northwestern Dallas County address will allow it to pull students not only from Dallas County, but also from high-population neighbors Tarrant County and Denton County (the latter does not have a community college in its rapidly-growing southern sector). This campus opens in the Fall 2008 semester.
In addition, North Lake College South Campus will be located on the northeast corner of Shady Grove and MacArthur Boulevard with the primary purpose of providing educational opportunities for those in need of basic academic skills, language acquisition, and job competencies in the underserved areas of South Irving.
The North Lake College Blazers compete within the Metro Athletic Conference, a National Junior College Athletic Association Division III non-scholarship conference. Sports at North Lake include Men's Basketball, Baseball, Women's Soccer, and volleyball.
On March 18, 2006 the North Lake College Men's Basketball team defeated the Gloucester County College (located in Sewell, New Jersey) team to claim the 2006 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division III Championship.
