Quality Programs

Educational options at NHCC include transfer degrees, career-focused programs, and short training certificates. NHCC is regionally accredited, so credits transfer easily into most bachelor's degree programs, including partner universities located on campus.

Low Tuition Cost and Financial Aid Assistance

NHCC has one of the lowest tuition rates in the state and awards more than $41 million in financial aid each year through grants, scholarships, work-study, and loans. Tuition is less expensive at NHCC than at private and public four-year universities.

Flexible Scheduling

Most NHCC students earn a degree while balancing work and family responsibilities, so we offer classes in the mornings, afternoons, evenings, and weekends. Classes can be taken on-campus or online, in hybrid or accelerated formats, and off-campus at our Buffalo location. See our class schedule for more details.
