Why am I not able to stay on-campus or take face-to-face classes this summer?
After careful consideration, and in keeping with guidance from Governor Abbott and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, we have determined that all Summer 2020 courses will be delivered online (with a few exceptions for a select number of workforce training programs). Given what we know about the current COVID-19 situation, we believe this continues to be the best course of action for the health and safety of our campus community. On-campus housing will remain closed throughout the summer.
A College Transition Program for Graduating High School Seniors
What is the Summer Success Program?
This is a program designed for students who are transitioning from high school to college. All students will report to success coaches who will help them to move smoothly from the life of a high school student to that of a college student.
Who is this program for?
This program is for students who are graduating from high school in the spring of 2020 and are planning on attending college in the fall (or, in many cases, wanting to see if they are ready to attend college classes in the fall).
Why would I want to be in the Summer Success Program?
Transitioning from high school to college can be a very stressful experience, especially if you are going to live away from home. This program will help you learn how to be a successful student. When students go away to college, many of them have much more time on their hands than they have had in the past. Learning time management skills along with how and when to study for college related courses can be very beneficial to your future success. This program helps you transition slowly without being thrown into college life all at once. In addition, the classes you take this summer will help you to get ahead. With the rising costs of a four-year degree, every class you can take in advance at NTCC will save you hundreds and even thousands of dollars.
When does the program take place?
The Summer Success Program takes place during the Summer 1 session (June 8 through July 9) at NTCC. Students will engage in virtual academic sessions including Time Management, Study Skills, Resume, Financial Literacy, Transfer and Career Exploration and online student activities!
What do I have to do to be eligible?
Be a first-time in college student. If you are not a FTIC student but would still like to participate make sure to apply!
What do I do if I want to apply?

Do I have to attend NTCC next fall in order to be in this program? No. This program is for any graduating senior who plans on attending college next year, whether NTCC or any other college.
Do I have to take certain classes?
No, you can take any class offered at NTCC.
