The original campus was located in downtown Niagara Falls and its main building was the former Nabisco Shredded Wheat plant. The current campus, which opened in 1973, is an example of sound planning. Approximately 5,000 students are enrolled in credit programs and thousands more take advantage annually of the College's extensive credit-free courses, short-term vocational programs, online education, and cultural and events. Niagara County Community College is centrally located in Niagara County on a beautiful 287-acre rural campus. NCCC ranks among the top schools in the SUNY system for student success. Our placement rates at four-year institutions—and in the job market—are exceptional. With more than 40 degree and certificate programs, Niagara County Community College offers a wide range of courses to help you on your way to an exciting and rewarding career. NCCC is authorized by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York to award the Associate in Arts Degree (AA), the Associate in Science Degree (AS), the Associate in Applied Science Degree (AAS) and the Associate in Occupational Science Degree (AOS) to regularly matriculated students upon successful completion of curriculum requirements.
