The visiting student is responsible for making certain that a course taken at NCMC is not a repeat of a course previously completed at another institution. If required to meet a prerequisite, official placement scores (i.e. ACT, Accuplacer) from within the past three years will also be required. These students must complete the application for admission online or by paper form.

Visiting/non-degree students are ineligible to receive the A+ Scholarship, Title IV Federal Aid, Missouri State Aid, and may be ineligible for other types of financial aid

Financial Aid/A+ scholarship students: Please follow the transfer student guidelines.
