The Degree After Five program is tailored for busy lifestyles and offers adults the opportunity to complete the degree they started or advance to the next level of their career.
All Degree After Five students must complete an application for admission and select Degree After Five as their program of study.
Placement tests are used to determine appropriate course placement of students' reading, writing and math abilities. Schedule ACT Compass® admission testing at a local NICC campus or center. Testing may be waived based on previous college coursework or submission of valid ACT®, ACCUPLACER® or ALEKS® test scores. Scores are valid for three years.
Financial aid is available to eligible Degree After Five students. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility. A minimum of six credit hours per semester is required for the Federal Direct Loan program, and federal Pell Grant eligibility is based on your enrollment status and federal guidelines. Apply for financial aid early to increase your potential for funding options.
The 2015-2016 tuition for the Degree After Five program is $167 per credit hour or $501 per 3-credit hour class for both in-state and out-of-state students.
