First Class On Us


Thinking about starting college?


At Northeast Texas Community College, we believe everyone deserves a chance to get a college education. In fact, we feel so strongly about this that we are offering the First Class On Us scholarship to any new student who wants to take a class with us in the Spring 2022 semester.

This offer for one free credit class is available to anyone who lives in Camp, Morris or Titus county who has never taken a course at NTCC. It’s that simple.

“We know there are a lot of people out there who have been putting off going to college for one reason or another. Thanks to a generous private scholarship, we are offering residents in our district a chance to try out NTCC at no cost to them,” Dr. Jonathan McCullough, Executive Vice President for Advancement, said.

Whether you have always wanted to learn how to weld, take an art class, learn more about business or take the first step toward a degree, this is your chance to get started. The First Class On Us scholarship includes tuition, fees and books for one class up to four credit hours. We will even cover the cost of TSI testing, which is required for entry into many college-level classes.

What are you waiting for?
