On April 1, 2020, Nevada’s Governor, Steve Sisolak, officially issued a directive that extends the stay-at-home order in Nevada through 5/15/2020.
As such, the COVID-19 Taskforce wanted to take a moment and notify our staff/faculty/students that Northwest Career College will stay closed to the general public through 5/3/2020.
Classes will continue to be held online and prospective students will still be able to register for coursework and begin their educational journeys.
At this time, NCC plans to reopen our campus on 6/1/2020, however, we will continue to meet twice weekly to discuss the evolving situation and verify these plans. If anything changes, you will be notified immediately.
