The NTC Promise provides free college tuition for qualified local high school graduates in the NTC district. This opportunity helps high school seniors realize their dreams of attending college while reducing financial barriers and ensuring a skilled workforce for our communities.

Through the generosity of the NTC Foundation, businesses and individual donors, the cost of tuition and fees will be covered by donated funds after federal and state financial aid (excluding loans and work-study) and scholarships have been applied.

We will provide up to five consecutive semesters of tuition free attendance for qualified students (up to 15 credits per semester; does not include summer semester) who meet ongoing requirements, in addition to individual guidance and support from a dedicated advisor.

Communicating with you allowed me to seek what I really want to do and as much as I love teaching, hopefully getting into the dental hygiene program this year and continuing my education further, I would like to actually be a dental hygiene professor. I hope many more students become part of the program and get the opportunity to explore careers just like me!
