The tuition is affordable. If you are eligible for financial aid, then it covers all the tuition. The school library is the best place to be for studying in your own. One of my favorite place is the tutoring lab. The school has all services and departments to help a student succeed in college.

I like North Shore Community College because they helped my daughter tremendously for the time she was there. She has a slight learning disability and the professors were just great helping her to understand concept and most important to graduate. I am very proud of my daughter's accomplishment and very respectful for the professionalism of the staff. The college is very close to home and very convienent for surrounding cities.
