Our exceptional faculty members bring a world of knowledge and experience into the classroom and help prepare NFCC graduates to enter the workforce or continue their education at four-year universities.
OUTSTANDING LEARNING ATMOSPHERE: NFCC is proud to have small classes, usually less than 25 students, where students are not just a number. At NFCC you learn in small, personal classes where instructors know you by name. NFCC offers excellent student and educational support services including counseling, tutoring and the latest educational technology in its classrooms and student learning areas.

NFCC also partners with Saint Leo University to offer bachelor degree level courses on the NFCC campus; making a four-year degree more accessible for students not wanting to travel to another location.
OPPORTUNITIES OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM: Outside the classroom, NFCC offers its students a wealth of opportunities to get involved with student clubs and organizations, community projects and educational and cultural events. NFCC student clubs range from personal interest clubs such as the NFCC Art Club or the Save Our Animal Resources (SOAR) ecology club to academic and career based organizations such as Phi Theta Kappa, Student Government Association or the NFCC Business Club to name a few.
