The Dual Credit program was outstanding. The teachers at my high school and the instructors at the College were really helpful. They wanted to support me in every way possible.

“It is so important for people to have the opportunity to pursue an education within their community. I know only too well the difficulties of leaving the community to pursue an education. NLC being in the community and offering a wide variety of programs allows community members to pursue post-secondary goals they otherwise could not.”
