North Central State is a public two-year community-based educational institution offering high quality, technical education in more than 60 associate degree and certificate programs in Health, Business, Public Service, and Engineering Technologies, as well as workforce training programs.
Graduates in the college's health and public services associate degree programs continue to lead the state in percentage of graduates passing their board exams for licensure the first time it is attempted scoring well above the national averages in every category. While health programs are the most popular, NC State's original roots are in manufacturing and business. The Kehoe Center in Shelby continues to train students in traditional tool and die disciplines with a growing interest in cross-training for many manufacturing systems including Pneumatics, Hydraulics and Electronic Controls. Our students compete in club sports including men's and women's soccer, men's and women's basketball, baseball, softball and a host of intramural sports. Numerous clubs are also available for a host of social, religious and political interests.
Main Campus sits on 600 beautiful wooded acres with walking paths and streams, sharing a campus with a branch of The Ohio State University. This location is accessible to the growing community of Ontario and is fifteen minutes from historic downtown Mansfield. The campus includes a Campus Child Development Center, accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and recognized in the state of Ohio for its quality, and a Campus Recreation Center, home of the champion Mansfield Mavericks basketball team comprised of students from both North Central State College and OSU Mansfield.
North Central State also offers classes at several outreach centers located throughout its service area. Students can take video conference classes at the Ashland/West Holmes Career Center, Bucyrus High School, Willard High School, and the Urban Center in downtown Mansfield. Professors take turns teaching classes from each location while broadcasting the same lecture to the other outreach centers. Additionally, face to face classes are also offered at the Urban Center.
