A Great Place to Learn

As of 2016, there are over 18,000 students taking courses at NVC and several off-site locations in a traditional daytime classroom setting as well as evening, Internet, hybrid and weekend courses. Most of the classes offered lead to a two-year associate degree or one-year certificate option.
