Northampton Community College is changing its tuition rates to help students get their degrees faster.

Northampton Community College is changing its tuition rates to help students get their degrees faster.

Starting this fall, NCC will charge a flat rate for in-county, full-time students. They'll be allowed to take anywhere from 12 to 18 credits for $1,845.

The flat rate, officials said, will encourage students to accelerate their studies.

Out-of-county students will also be charged a flat rate, but it varies depending on county.

Part-time, in-county students will continue to pay per credit.
