Northeast Texas Community College (NTCC) is a community college serving the Northeast Texas region. The campus is set on 375 acres (1.52 km2) in rural Titus County near the community of Chapel Hill, approximately seven miles southeast of Mount Pleasant, the county seat.

As defined by the Texas Legislature, the official service area of NTCC comprises the following:[1]



In January 1984, the voters of Camp, Morris, and Titus counties approved a community college district for the area. The campus (centrally located among the county seats of Daingerfield, Pittsburg, and Mount Pleasant) and facilities were quickly chosen and constructed – by the fall semester of 1985 the first classes were held.

As a relatively modern campus with all new construction, NTCC has managed to keep all its buildings of uniform appearance – all buildings are constructed of earth-tone brick with copper-tone metal roofs.

Along with the human scale of the architecture, NTCC's faculty strive to be personable and supportive. The mission of the college is to offer "responsible and exemplary learning opportunities." The college song is "Eagles Soaring On."

NTCC is governed by a seven-member Board of Trustees. Three members are from Titus County, and two members each are from Morris and Camp counties.

Educational Offerings

As with other community colleges, NTCC offers basic core courses which can lead to Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degrees, and/or transfer to four-year universities, as well as Associate of Applied Science degrees and certificates which allow students to immediately enter the workforce. NTCC also offers concurrent enrollment options for high school juniors and seniors.

NTCC students may obtain bachelor's degrees from Texas A&M University-Texarkana in the fields of teacher education and criminal justice, while taking all classes at the NTCC campus. NTCC and Texas A & M University at College Station have entered into an articulation agreement to provide a seamless transition for students who completed the Associate of Science Degree in Biomedical Science at NTCC to a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biomedical Science at Texas A & M. NTCC students must complete the A.S. degree with a 3.6 GPA, with no grades below "B" in science and math.

For high-achieving students, NTCC initiated an honors program in the spring of 2007. Each fall, fifteen Presidential Scholars are selected. Graduating seniors and freshmen with exemplary grades are admitted. Students from NTCC's award-winning honors program have presented work at the Great Plains Honors Conference, and the National Collegiate Honors Conference.


Northeast Texas Community College has a NJCAA Division I baseball team called the Eagles. They play their games at Eagle Field in Mount Pleasant, TX.[2]. The stadium features a grass playing field and 25 foot wall similar to the Green Monster that goes from left field to center field. It seats 1200 people and home run wall distances of 309 in left field, 400 in center, and 325 in right field.

The Lady Eagles softball team play NJCAA Division I. They have a lighted, grass playing field (newly constructed in 2009) with bleachers and a press box/concession immediately behind home plate. They also have an adjacent practice field.

The men's & women's rodeo team compete across the country and earned 3rd place at Nationals in 2007.

Men's soccer will be added in the Fall of 2010 and women's soccer will begin Fall, 2011. A competition-grade field exists on campus.
