Dual Enrollment Tuition & Fees

Dual Enrollment Tuition

Dual Enrollment students receive a special reduced tuition rate, making it a more affordable option to get ahead on college credits. Our cost-per-credit is substantially lower for our Dual Enrollment students and they are transferable to most four-year schools. Additionally, students only pay credit tuition fees and not any associated fees. However, they are still required to pay for textbooks and supplies needed for class.

  • The Northampton County resident rate is only $90/credit ($270 for a 3-credit course)
  • The Monroe County resident rate is $95/credit ($285 for a 3-credit course)
  • The Out-of-County rate is $110/credit ($330 for a 3-credit course)
  • The Out-of-State rate is $125/credit ($375 for a 3-credit course)


Each year, NCC is able to award a limited number of scholarships to students who reside in Northampton and Monroe County and attend one of the following public schools: Bangor, East Stroudsburg North & South, Easton, Freedom, Liberty, Nazareth, Northampton, Pen Argyl, Pleasant Valley, Pocono Mountain East & West, Saucon Valley, Stroudsburg, & Wilson.

  • Scholarships cover the cost of one three credit class per year
  • Students should apply for the scholarship each semester (if not awarded for the previous semester)
  • Students can only receive one scholarship (covering one three credit course) per academic year as we try to offer this opportunity to as many students as possible
  • Students are notified by email prior to the start of the semester if they have been awarded a scholarship (August 1st for Fall and January 1st for Spring)
  • Students will not be notified if they did not receive a scholarship
  • If a student is awarded a scholarship, it will appear on the student's bill as "pending" until a few weeks into the semester
  • Students are still responsible for any and all books and supplies needed for the courses, but applying for scholarships is a great way to help reduce the cost of tuition.
