North Central Texas College (NCTC) is looking to open a new location in the old Denton Record-Chronicle building in downtown Denton. Construction for the project is planned for April 2018 and classes are expected to start fall 2019.
“This sleeping giant here at NCTC is being awakened and being recognized even more so, which is creating a great partnership with UNT and TWU,” said Roy Culberson, associate vice chancellor of operations at NCTC. “It’s giving the opportunity for our community of Denton to be more involved with their education.”
The board of regents for the NCTC district approved a notice of intent to purchase a leased property during their meeting in October. NCTC will work with the Martino Group, the property owner for the desired location, and their sister company, Links Construction.
“We approved a resolution to enter into a lease agreement with the developers to lease that building and for them to go ahead and move forward with predesign work and work with us to get a layout,” Vice Chancellor of Administrative Affairs Robbie Baugh stated in a press release.
The Denton campus will offer core classes that are transferable towards an associate degree. NCTC has a partnership with UNT and Texas Woman’s University that allows students to transfer without losing credits. The partnership also gives students the opportunity to be concurrently enrolled at all three institutions.
