High school juniors or seniors and families, transfer students, and any aspiring college students are welcome.

NCTA offers a high quality, affordable education," said Tina K. Smith, Admissions and Recruiting Coordinator.

Major programs include AgriBusiness Management Systems, Agriculture Production Systems (livestock, equine, agronomy, range management, ag equipment, diversified ag, ag education and irrigation technician), Horticulture, and Veterinary Technology Systems, including Comparative Medicine.

NCTA has traditionally been a 2-year technical college awarding an Associates of Science degree, but for the first time this fall, NCTA will partner with its sister campus, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, to provide a venue for students to earn a bachelor of applied science degree through UNL on-line and NCTA programs.

In addition to exploring academic programs, open house attendees can scout opportunities on four inter-collegiate competition teams. Livestock Judging, Rodeo, Equestrian (Western and English riding), and Ranch Horse Teams align with some of NCTA’s key academic programs, said NCTA Dean Ron Rosati, PhD. 

Preregistration for the 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Open House is recommended. See www.ncta.unl.edu, and click on the "open house RSVP" link. Scholarship drawings for $500 will be featured at each Open House for students making an advance, paid application to attend NCTA.

"Our college has a unique mission in the University of Nebraska system. We focus on tangible learning activities and hands-on education relevant to modern agricultural careers," Rosati notes. "At the end of a day of classes, students can look back on the past few hours and clearly see that they have developed specific skills that are immediately useful in various agricultural endeavors."
