Welcome to the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture!

Throughout a vibrant 107-year history, our Aggie family of faculty and staff here in Curtis has greeted generations of students to this welcoming, rural campus. Together, we have forged common bonds and expansive opportunities in an educational community. You will realize this enrichment too!

On behalf of Associate Dean Jennifer McConville and our NCTA faculty, I extend a hearty note of appreciation to each Aggie student. Thank you for making NCTA your choice for higher learning. You will find a warm, friendly, and fun atmosphere in Curtis and Frontier County!

Our Student Services team members in admissions, residence life, registration, advising and recruiting are all on board to assist you with whatever you need. Student success is #1 at NCTA!

It is important to rely on your advisors to help you navigate your courses to ensure that you successfully fulfill your requirements for graduation. They want to get to know and understand your goals. Faculty advisors can best prepare you on your career path into the workforce. Their expertise is invaluable for advanced national boards or certifying exams, or as you transition into pursuit of a 4-year or higher degree program. Stay in contact with them.

While you are in our historic Ag Hall for classes, picking up a parking pass or perhaps securing campus employment at the business office, please stop by the Dean’s Office Suite on Second Floor and say hello. We look forward to welcoming you to campus and meeting you in person.
