Introduction

Navarro College (NC) was established in 1946 and is currently distributed over four different campuses including Corsicana, South (Mexia), Midlothian, and Waxahachie. NC is an open door, public, community college, which primarily serves the educational, civic and business communities in Navarro, Ellis, Limestone, Freestone and Leon counties. It is known as one of the safest two-year colleges in the nation due to its warning campus alert system. This system allows students to be instantly notified through sirens, text message alerts and a speaker system in case of an emergency. Community College Week named Navarro College “The Fastest-Growing Public Two-Year College in the Nation."

Academics

Navarro offers associate’s degrees, certificates, and continuing education programs in over 80 areas of study. Students have the option of taking classes in a traditional classroom setting, a hybrid course setting (a blend of classroom and online learning), and a fully online course setting. There are hundreds of Internet courses offered each semester to meet the growing online education.

An Honors Program is offered to students allowing them to benefit from early registration, special housing facilities and honors-level courses. There are several programs offered to help ensure students success at Navarro including the Faculty-Centered Advising Program, Carl Perkins Career Center, the International Student Program, and freshman orientation.

After graduating from Navarro, transition to a four-year college or university is made easy through Navarro’s partnership with Texas A&M University-Commerce allowing students to continue taking classes at either the Navarro College Corsicana or Midlothian campuses. Students can work on their bachelor’s degree or even their master’s degree through this partnership. If students would like to attend a different four-year university in Texas, there are many other schools students have the option of transferring to as well. Some of the other colleges and universities NC has connections with include Sam Houston State University, Stephen F. Austin State University, Tarleton University, University of North Texas, and University of Texas at Dallas.

Most Popular Fields of Study

Admissions

Applications for admission can be filled out online through the Apply Texas Web site or at any of the four campuses. There is no fee or essay required. International students are not to use the Apply Texas online application. All of the forms required for international students can be found on the schools website and mailed to the Navarro College International Student Office.

Financial Aid

Scholarships are offered to students based on financial need, talent, major and academic success. Students must fill out and submit a FAFSA in order to determine their financial aid eligibility. Students are not required to be enrolled full-time (12 credit hours) to be eligible to receive a Pell Grant. However students enrolled less than full-time will receive a prorated Pell Grant designed to match their enrollment status.

Students interested in being part of the Work-Study Program must fill out a FAFSA and meet the federal student aid eligibility requirements. Applications for work-study jobs can be found online at the schools website. During the academic year students in the Work Study Program are allowed to work a maximum of 18 hours per week. Students will be assigned work hours based on their eligible award amount, class schedule, and academic progress. Students will be paid by the hour and wages will be equal to at least the current federal minimum wage, but can be higher for returning work-study employees. Checks will be received once a month and students working in Midlothian, Waxahachie, or Mexia must fill out a Check Release Authorization Form in order for the checks to be delivered to the appropriate local campus business office.

Discharged or separated Texas veterans, eligible dependent children, and spouses of Texas veterans may be eligible for the Hazlewood Exemption (Hazlewood Act). Veterans are eligible to receive these benefits if at the time of entry into the U.S. Armed Forces they were either a Texas resident, designated Texas as Home of Record, or entered the service in Texas. Also veterans must have served for at least 181 days of active military duty. For more information on financial aid options, visit the official NC website.

Clubs and Organizations

There are over 30 clubs and organizations available to help students make life long friends and develop leadership skills. Navarro strives to provide their students with more than just a great education.

Campus Housing

Navarro differs from many other community colleges in Texas by providing on-campus housing for its students at the Corsicana campus. Students are encouraged to apply early for housing due to its limited space and high demand. There are no private rooms available within the Navarro College Residence Life Program.

Students enrolled in the Honors program have the option of living in the IOOF Honors Residence Halls. The Honors program housing is located in three cottages on the north part of campus, which is just north of the football practice fields. Students interested in living in the IOOF cottages must first be approved.

Wireless Internet is provided for all students living on campus. All students have access to the library at NC, which houses more than 70,000 books, 1,500 print journals, 29,000 e-books, 30,000 electronic journals and millions of articles. Also all four campuses are fully equipped with wireless Internet access.

All students living on campus are required to be enrolled in at least 15 semester credit hours and must maintain 12 semester credit hours throughout the semester. A criminal background check and a bacterial meningitis vaccination are required for all students living on campus. Along with submitting a Residence Hall application students must pay a room deposit as well as a small additional fee for the background check.
