Welcome to the 2024-25 Course Catalog for the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture!

NCTA is a historic campus that has provided generations of students with the opportunity for a high-quality, hands-on, affordable education. Our small rural campus provides students with opportunities to engage with faculty, staff, other students, and the community. We all look forward to welcoming YOU to campus for the beginning of your Aggie experience. NCTA is a small campus with a big impact.

Associate Dean Jennifer McConville and I, along with the NCTA faculty, extend a sincere note of appreciation to each Aggie student. Thank you for making NCTA your choice for higher learning. You will find a warm, friendly, and fun atmosphere in Curtis and Frontier County!

Our NCTA Course Catalog is the in-depth guide for each facet of your student experience. From understanding campus policies and curriculum, to knowing the year’s schedule of events, locating listings of academic programs and courses, or finding the ideal student club or organization to join, all these resources are detailed in this easy-to use electronic format. Please refer to your online catalog throughout the year.

Our Student Services team members in admissions, residence life, registration, advising, and recruiting are all on board to assist you with whatever you need. Student success is #1 at NCTA!

It is important to rely on your advisors to help you navigate your courses to ensure that you successfully fulfill your requirements for graduation. They want to get to know and understand your goals. Faculty advisors can best prepare you on your career path into the workforce. Their expertise is invaluable for advanced national boards or certifying exams, or as you transition into pursuit of a 4-year or higher degree program. Stay in contact with them.

If you are transferring courses in from another institution, or planning on transferring to a four-year college after you leave NCTA, be sure to visit with Dr. Eric Reed, our Director of Transfer Programs. He’ll make sure your transition into or out of NCTA is as seamless as possible.

While you are in our historic Ag Hall for classes, picking up a parking pass or perhaps securing campus employment at the business office, please stop by the Dean’s Office Suite on Second Floor and say hello. We look forward to welcoming you to campus and meeting you in person.
