Why NCAD?

Home / Discover NCAD / Why NCAD?

No.1 RECEIVE MORE PERSONAL ATTENTION WITH SMALLER CLASS SIZES

At NCAD, we have one overarching goal — to help every single one of our students achieve academic, personal, and professional success. With our smaller class sizes, our students receive the attention and opportunity they need to do their best work and to develop lifelong professional connections with their peers and their instructors.

No.2 TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR NEW LOWER COST AND FIXED TUITION

NCAD is an affordable alternative to other private art colleges that offer similar degrees. To prove it, NCAD is rolling back tuition, so we are now more affordable than ever before! NCAD’s Fixed Tuition Policy also guarantees that we will not increase a student’s tuition during their enrollment in our program.

No.3 SKIP CLASS REGISTRATION LINES

Unlike traditional colleges, NCAD takes the hassle out of class scheduling. We have designed our program so that students receive every class they need to graduate, when they need it, from start to finish.

No.4 EXPERIENCE LIFETIME CAREER SERVICES ASSISTANCE

Our Career Services Department will help our students identify and pursue opportunities while they are enrolled, after they graduate, and throughout the entire course of their careers.

No.5 ENJOY A SHORT SCHOOL WEEK

We understand that a whole wide world awaits outside the classroom. NCAD schedules are typically only three to four days a week, allowing our students ample time for homework, internships, part-time employment, and “having a life” outside of school.

No.6 LEARN FROM EXPERIENCED INSTRUCTORS

Students will learn directly from the seasoned creative professionals who teach our technical and occupational classes (studio and lab classes), and from the highly educated instructors who teach our general education classes.
