In consideration of the latest recommendations from the CDC, Federal and State Governments regarding the unprecedented COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the NTCC Campus is closed to the public until further notice and all classes have transitioned to online.

As this is a rapidly changing situation, we are monitoring the latest updates and guidelines closely and will keep our campus community apprised of any further changes that may become necessary. Campus health and safety is our top priority and we are working diligently to ensure that there is minimal disruption to instruction and student services during this time.

 

Other Important Information:

  • Campus housing will remain open on a very limited basis.
  • All spring 2020 sports and events have been cancelled.
  • All other planned activities and gatherings on the NTCC main campus or outreach centers are cancelled effective immediately.
     

NTCC continues to follow all local recommendations and those made by the Center for Disease Control, the World Health Organization and the Texas Department of State Health Services.  At this time, the CDC maintains that the most effective measures against the spread of COVID-19 are to:

• Use proper handwashing techniques

• Avoid person-to-person contact when possible

• Use hand sanitizer between washes

• Stay home when you feel sick
