Supporting students outside the classroom.
North Shore Community College is committed to your educational access and achievement.
NSCC is here to help.
Help can come in many ways, depending on the student and the situation. It could be an advance on your expected financial aid, an MBTA T-Pass, gas or food cards, or a small grant. If rent, transportation or other issues are impacting your success, then completing our Here to Help application will allow us to look at the best way to help you! Students who need assistance accessing resources for Housing, SNAP, Utility Assistance, MassHealth Enrollment, MassHealth Recertification, Emergency Food, navigating social services agencies & more are encouraged to fill out the Here to Help application. After you complete the application, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Feeling stressed or overwhelmed?
Learning to successfully balance school, work, and family can sometimes be extremely difficult. Please visit the Student Support and Advising Center on either campus or contact the counselors listed below by phone or email. We specialize in short-term support, crisis assistance, referrals, resources, and other ideas to help you.
Additional useful information such as Emergency Service Providers (giving you access to a local mental health team to discuss concerns after standard business hours), various hotlines, local community partners, and Food Pantry locations/hours, can be found under Emergency Resources.
As the college is operating fully remote - there will be no in person meetings. Please reach out via email to our counselors to schedule a phone or video meeting.
