In 1963, Kansas legislation was passed, which provided vocational-technical education. Senate Bill 438, in conjunction with the National Education Act (SB 4955), approved the establishment of sixteen vocational-technical schools and nineteen community colleges in the state of Kansas.


Classes began in the fall of 1964 with five programs being offered. Six instructors and one placement officer/counselor made up the staff utilizing rented facilities in the community; North Central Kansas Area Vocational Technical School  in Beloit became a reality.


On July 1, 1996, North Central Kansas Area Vocational Technical School ceased to exist. In its place, North Central Kansas Technical College (NCKTC) was created. The same locations, the same quality education, but a new name with new directions was designed to enhance the educational opportunities for the region.


Our Hays Campus was established in 1975 and traditionally provided technical education to students in Ellis and surrounding counties. However, with the addition of new programs and new campus facilities, the campus is growing to serve potential students from all over Kansas and parts of the southwest and south central Nebraska.


NCK Technical College - Hays now offers an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing (RN), Pharmacy Technician, Automotive Technology and General Business. Certificate programs include Nursing (LPN), Pharmacy Technician, Business Management, Business Technology, Residential Electricity and our newest program beginning in Fall of 2008 - Welding. The Hays Campus also offers short-term courses such as CNA and CMA certification. General Education courses (most which are transferable to other colleges and universities) are offered throughout the entire year. Contact the campus for courses and scheduling.


The Gateway Plan - a partnership between Fort Hays State University and NCK Technical College, offers our students the option to live on the campus of FHSU, participate in intramurals, access student health, wellness center, attend ballgames and so much more. It also provides NCK Technical College students the opportunity to continue their education at FHSU with many degree and career options available.


Excitement is abound at NCK Technical College - Hays Campus. New programs, new construction and soon - easy access to our campus with the extension of 22nd Street east. We are excited! We hope you will stop by and see why!
