Neosho County Community College


Hello and Welcome to Neosho County Community College (NCCC), home of the "Panthers"! We are a two-year institution offering Associate Degrees. We can offer you a safe, hometown environment where your individual needs and goals can be achieved. Our International population is small but growing. We currently have international students representing twelve different countries and have had former international students who transferred to Harvard, the Art Institute of Chicago, and other credible four-year institutions.


The college was founded in 1936 as Chanute Junior College. In 1965, the name was changed to Neosho County Community Junior College, and a bond issue was passed to build the current campus. In 1980, the word "junior" was removed from the name of the College.


NCCC has two main locations: a residential campus in Chanute, Kansas, and a campus serving Ottawa, Kansas. Chanute is a city of 10,000 located in the rural southeast corner of Kansas. Chanute is less than two hours from Wichita, Kansas City, Topeka, and Tulsa, Oklahoma. Ottawa is a city of 12,000 located in north central Kansas and is just one-half hour from Lawrence and Kansas City.


Neosho County Community College has an enrollment of approximately 3500 students and holds classes according to the traditional semester system. Our fall semester begins in August and our spring semester begins in January. We have two four-week summer sessions held in June and July.
