Microcredentials are available to current NCC students, non-degree students, transfer students, nontraditional students and working professionals. A high school diploma or GED equivalent is required to apply. Some microcredential courses may have prerequisites.

Nassau Community College is open admissions. A high school diploma or GED is required to pursue credit-bearing programs.

See Admissions for information.

Are you a current Nassau Community College student?

If you are a current Nassau student interested in pursuing a microcredential, please contact the academic department for more information.

How to Apply

New microcredential programs will be added soon at Nassau Community College. For information, please contact Dr. Justin Dolce, Associate Dean of Admissions, at or email or call 516.572.7346.

Receive Support from Start to Finish

All students will have access to support resources that include the Student Services Support Center, Math Lab, Writing Center, the library, and the Center for Students with Disabilities.

Start on a Pathway to a Degree or Certificate

Acceptance into a microcredential does not guarantee acceptance into a degree or certificate program. However, credits you earn toward a microcredential may apply to a Nassau Community College associate’s degree or certificate program. If you are planning to pursue a degree or certificate, we encourage you to reach out to your academic program of interest first to learn about those requirements.

If you are interested in transferring credit toward a bachelor’s degree program within the State University of New York system, we encourage you to contact the NCC Career and Transfer Counseling Center in Nassau Hall (Room 19) or call 516.572.7696.
