Why Choose NCMC?

Academics. Choose from 45 degree programs to fit your educational goals, whether that is starting your career once you graduate or transferring into a 4-year degree program at another college or university.

Affordability. On average, you’ll pay 37% less to attend NCMC than you would at another public, in-state institution. Even better, if you qualify for the Missouri A+ Scholarship, your tuition and general fees will be 100% covered.

Accessibility. Classes can be taken online or on-campus, and 10 of our degrees can be completed start to finish without ever stepping foot on campus. NCMC instructors have been teaching online classes for almost 20 years! Plus, there are classes held at the North Belt Center just north of St. Joseph, Missouri, and our nursing programs are taught in Maryville, Bethany, and on our main campus. You’re sure to find classes that fit your schedule.

So why NCMC? We care about our students’ plans for their lives. We make sure you’re getting your education, your way. Join the Pirate crew and see for yourself.
