GENERAL EDUCATION

LEARNING SERVICES

We believe there is a core of valuable learning experiences common to all students, regardless of their program of study. The general education courses provide students the educational background for effective social interactions, progression in the workforce and, if desired, enrollment in other institutions of higher education through transferable credits. All one year programs require 3 general education courses while our two year programs require 5 courses. Many of these courses are available face-to-face and online.

NCK Tech acknowledges that traditional methods, programs, and services are not always appropriate or sufficient to accommodate the limitations experienced by some qualified persons with disabilities. When a student’s disability prevents him/her from fulfilling a course requirement through conventional procedures, consideration will be given to alternatives, keeping in mind that academic standards must be maintained.
