NCTC & Mulberry Street Cantina

On June 1, the North Central Texas College Alumni & Friends Association was excited to partner with the Denton Young Professionals for the second time. The two groups gathered at and guests enjoyed networking and mingling. This assembly also gave those unfamiliar with NCTC’s educational and economic impact on Denton County the opportunity to learn more about the college.

North Central Texas College offers five campuses, two of which are conveniently located to service the needs of Denton county residents. NCTC has a long history in Denton County serving the educational needs of this region. We are your community college in Denton County – serving 8,000 students, and we are the number one choice for higher education for Denton County high school seniors.

In Denton County, NCTC offers health sciences, general academic courses, dual credit, business, technology, education and criminal justice programs on the Corinth and Flower Mound Campuses.

Students of all ages and with different educational goals find that the NCTC Corinth Campus is able to meet their needs. The Corinth campus offers: Nursing, Computer Networking, Science, Surgical Technology, Emergency Medical Services, Firefighting, and university transfer courses.

The Flower Mound Campus is the newest addition to the North Central Texas College District, opening in January 2011 with slightly over 800 students and a handful of staff and faculty. The campus today boasts almost 2000 students. In addition to university transfer courses and computer networking, beginning in fall 2018, students will be able to obtain a Bachelor Degree from Midwestern State University, in partnership with NCTC, without ever having to leave Flower Mound.
NCTC offers high demand workforce education and training for area business and industry including partnering with the Texas Workforce Commission to offer local industry technical training for their employees at a much reduced cost. As we develop additional industry partnerships, NCTC will need to expand its technical training facilities to meet the need for a high-skilled, high-demand workforce.  In addition, we meet the community’s interest and skill gaps through the college’s Lifelong Learning Division.

NCTC believes in student success by providing customized support services such as tutoring, mentoring, career coaching, supplemental instruction and counseling.  As your community college we are continually working to meet the needs of the communities we serve and the students we train. Articulation agreements with UNT & TWU offer students seamless transitions from the community college to the university, all while providing a high quality affordable education.
