Attend college and live in one of the South’s most beautiful areas!


Northeast Alabama Community College is located in one of the most picturesque areas of the American South. The college is in the Appalachian region of Alabama, and close by are such scenic attractions as mountain waterfalls, canyons deeper than any east of the Mississippi, breathtaking mountain views and great outdoor activities such as hiking, boating, skiing and fishing activities on Guntersville Lake, rock climbing, whitewater rafting, and spelunking in miles of underground caverns.

At the same time NACC is only a short drive away from two of the South’s most vibrant and progressive cities – Huntsville, Alabama, and Chattanooga, Tennessee. Additionally, the Ocoee River, the Nantahala Canyon, and the Great Smoky Mountains, and Nashville, Tennessee are within two to three hour drives from the college, depending on the destination. The NACC campus itself is located on Highway 35 (Lowell Barron Highway), a predominantly four-lane route that crosses Sand Mountain and is one of the state’s most beautiful drives. The college features a nature trail through native Appalachian plants and trees surrounding a mountain lake. NACC is located approximately fifteen miles from Scottsboro and Fort Payne, and Rainsville is five miles away.

No matter where you now live, consider attending college at one of the South’s best community colleges and enroll in one of the school’s many programs. See our list of local apartment complexes. To learn more about the college and admission, begin by exploring the website menu.
