Northampton Community College (NCC) is a public community college serving several counties in the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania. NCC’s mission is to “provide excellence, accessible and comprehensive learning experiences in partnership with the dynamic, diverse communities we serve.” To this end, NCC offers several online courses through the Office of Online Learning (OOL) that allow students to either supplement their on-ground schedule with additional courses or earn their degree or certificate entirely online. NCC’s online courses are not self-paced but are still a highly convenient and flexible option. All courses are facilitated by an instructor and include regular participation and instruction which allows students to feel a part of a class without sacrificing individual attention. Areas of study cover a wide range of fields, including Business, Criminal Justice, Education and more.
