* Apply for Admission
Applications can be found online.
1- Go to NorthwestState.edu/apply-now
2- Under the NSCC Application for Admissions heading, click the Apply Online link.
3- New students will need to create a first time user account (this allows students to log back into the application if you get interrupted before completing.)
4- Students will be prompted to answer a series of questions that will funnel them into the CCP Application. This is pretty straight forward. One of the questions asks if a student will have graduated from high school prior to the semester they are applying for- it does give a specific date here. They will answer no, and immediately be identified as a CCP student.

NSCC will be at Wayne Trace on April 6th at 1pm to administer the Accuplacer. The test will take approximately 1.5 hours.
