NCC Named One of the Best Colleges for Adult Learners

Northampton Community College has received national recognition as one of the 100 best community colleges for adult learners nationwide by Washington Monthly.  Since 2005, Washington Monthly has released an annual college guide and ranking.  Schools are rated based on what they are doing for the country.  For the second year in a row it has ranked the best colleges for adult learners, the first-ever ranking of its kind. 

Rankings are based on data from two federal government sources as well as the College Board’s Annual Survey of Colleges and combined into seven general measures of colleges’ openness to adult students and to how well those students fared once they left. NCC ranked 60th on the nationwide list and scored high marks in ease of transfer, flexibility of programs, services for adult students, and tuition and fees.

AAUW Easton Branch is proud of the scholarships we have been able to establish at Northampton Community College.  The Jane Wait STEM Scholarship was established in May 2012 and the first scholarship was awarded in 2012-13. It is now named the AAUW Easton Branch STEM Scholarship. The AAUW Easton Branch Endowment was funded in 2013 and the first scholarship was awarded in 2014-15.

We would like to thank all the members of the AAUW Easton Branch whose hard work have made these scholarships and endowment possible.
