About Northeast Texas Community College:
Northeast Texas Community College is in the northeastern corner of Texas, in between Dallas/Fort Worth and Texarkana. A relatively modern campus, recently remodeled, the college is also home to the Elizabeth Hoggatt Whatley Agriculture complex, a “net-zero” building and Platinum-LEED certified classroom complex featuring the latest in alternative energy and environmentally-friendly technologies.
The campus includes dormitories for resident students, although most students are commuter students. The campus also provides a coffee shop on campus and a fitness center. Student athletes, including several internationally recruited players, compete in NJCAA Division I baseball, softball, rodeo, and soccer.
As with other community colleges, NTCC offers basic core courses which can lead to Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degrees, and/or transfer to four-year universities, as well as Associate of Applied Science degrees and certificates which allow students to immediately enter the workforce. NTCC also offers concurrent enrollment options for high school juniors and seniors. In addition, NTCC students may obtain bachelor's degrees from Texas A&M University-Texarkana in a few select areas while taking all classes at the NTCC campus.
With a student enrollment around 3,000, NTCC offers small class sizes with a student to faculty ratio of 16-to-1.
The surrounding area contains seven lakes, including Lake Bob Sandlin, offering plenty of opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts and those seeking a peaceful, family-friendly lifestyle.
