Nashua Community College has worked with Cross Insurance Company to offer a Student Blanket Accident Insurance Plan. Please be aware this plan is an accident only plan. Here is a link to the brochure. You may also pick one up in the Admission’s Office, room 156.
We encourage students needing health insurance to review the Companies licensed to sell health insurance in NH at http://www.nh.gov/insurance/consumers/healthinscos.htm to identify a provider that best meets their needs. The list includes companies that could provide either individual health insurance or short term (six months) health insurance. Please note that NCC is providing this link as a resource to our students and it should not be view as an endorsement of any of the companies or their plans. Government information on health insurance can be found at www.healthcare.gov.
Proof of health insurance is required for students enrolled in the Nursing Program and those who participate in athletic activities. Some additional College related activities may require proof of health insurance, which will be requested as needed.

The College-Level Examination Program gives you the opportunity to receive college credit for what you already know. CLEP helps students:
Shorten the time it takes to earn a degree
The cost of a CLEP exam is $80; a fraction of the tuition for the corresponding course.
Avoid repeating material-skip general introductory courses and move on to more advanced classes.
Nashua CC is an approved CLEP testing site. Our college awards credits to students who achieve a score of 50 or better on the following tests:
Introductory Business Law
History of the U.S. I
History of the U.S. II
Western Civilization I
Western Civilization II
Principles of Management
Financial Accounting I
Analyzing and Interpreting Literature
Successful completion of a CLEP exam is treated as a transfer credit. Students may not receive CLEP credits for a course they have attempted and failed. Students cannot be registered for a class when they are taking a CLEP test for that class. If a student does not pass a CLEP test, he/she must wait six months to take it again. Students will need to request that a copy of their scores be sent to Nashua CC for review. This request is made to the College Board during or after the exam.
How to register for a CLEP Exam at NCC:
The first step to taking a CLEP exam would log onto www.collegeboard.com/clep and register via the My Account feature. Payment for the exam is presently $80.00 and is made at the time of registration through My Account. You will be issued a registration ticket after paying for an exam.
After you receive this ticket, you may then contact Lisa or pay and sign up for a specific date to test. You will be asked for the Voucher number that is written on your registration ticket-so please have the ticket handy when you call. Please bring your registration ticket with you on the day of the exam with two forms of identification. Your driver's license, passport or other government issued ID that includes your photo and signatuire are acceptable. Our center charges a $25.00 fee to administer the exam which is paid on the date of the test.

What is Academic Advising?
Academic Advising is a partnership between a student and academic adviser. The intent of this partnership is to assist the student in developing and reaching meaningful educational goals based on personal interests, values and abilities.
What should I know about my first semester? As with other changes you make in your life, attending college will require some adjustment and transition. If you are working you now have to juggle a job, classes, homework, family and life in general. Together with your academic adviser, you can explore some strategies for managing your new commitments along with your existing responsibilities.
How do I find out who my Academic Adviser is?
Sign in to Student Information Systems and select the Student tab, click on Student Records link and select MY ADVISER. You can contact the Advising Center if you have any questions.
What can you expect from an adviser?
Advising may involve helping you:
- select an academic program
- understand NCC processes and procedures
- select and register for courses
- add /drop a course
- change your major
- assistance with transfer to a four year institution
When do I register for classes?
Dates for registration are published on the NCC website.
What do I need to do to transfer to a four year college?
Make an appointment to meet with your adviser to discuss transfer opportunities and the steps to take to insure a smooth transition. Look at the nhtransfer.org website for information on New Hampshire public and some private colleges and universities.
How do I obtain an official copy of my transcript?
To obtain an official transcript, you must complete an Authorization to Release a Transcript form and submit it to the Registrar's Office. You can request it through SIS.
Transfer Possibilities Start Here...
Many students decide to continue their education after graduating from NCC. If you are interested in transferring to a four year college or university, please speak with an academic adviser in the Advising Center.
Each fall, the Academic Advising Center hosts a Transfer Fair, and representatives from four-year colleges visit throughout the year.
Please see your Academic Adviser to discuss your pathways to transfer, including:
- Granite State College is co-located on-site at Nashua Community College, giving students the opportunity to turn their associate degree into a bachelor’s right on the NCC campus.
- The University System of New Hampshire and the Community College System of New Hampshire have partnered to create NHTransfer.org. This website contains a database that shows students how courses from NCC transfer to participating institutions.
- Students applying to Keene State College, UNH, UNH Manchester, Plymouth State University, or Granite State College may complete the NH Transfer Form. This simple one-page form is available in the Academic Advising Center, and students completing this form do not have to pay application fees.
- Students who plan on completing their two-year degree at NCC and then transferring to SNHU may complete a one-page application to be in a dual enrollment program.
