Parent FAQs

Welcome, Parents and Friends!

Whether you want to get a jump on college, learn new skills to get a better job, or earn an associate degree or certificate, Northeast State Community College is the place to start.


We have worked to meet the needs of the thousands of learners who have followed their dreams and taken advantage of a Northeast State education. It has been a journey of progress, starting in 1966 as a vocational school with two buildings, six programs, and 35 students; and arriving in 2016 as a comprehensive community college with five campuses, 150 programs, and serving more than 7,500 students annually.

Northeast State offers hundreds of online, video, and weekend courses from our teaching sites in Blountville, Elizabethton, Gray, Kingsport, and Johnson City. This means you can learn what you need to know, in whatever way you learn best.

Safety is Important to Us

Sending your student off to college isn’t easy, but we are here to ease your minds. 

Paying for College

All fees are payable at the time of registration each semester. Registration dates and payment due dates are listed in the Academic Calendar. Student schedules are deleted if fees are not paid by the applicable due date. Registration is not complete until all fees are paid and no student may attend class without having met all financial obligations. Northeast State offers a variety of payment methods.


The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their educational records. To learn more about FERPA, click here
