Nevada State College (NSC) is a four-year public college located in Henderson, Nevada, and is part of the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE). The college opened on September 3, 2002, and is located on a 509 acres (206 ha) site in the southern foothills of Henderson, Nevada. The original site of the college, first proposed in 2000 and located on approximately 300 acres northeast of Lake Mead Drive and Boulder Highway near downtown Henderson raised environmental concerns as it was located approximately one mile from a toxic waste storage facility, which prompted the Nevada Board of Regents in 2001 to select the college's present day site located west of U.S. Highway 95 in what was once the Wagon Wheel Industrial Park.

In the past, some of Nevada State College's programs suffered from lower than expected enrollments. However, enrollment for 2010 increased by 23.3% compared to the year before.

As of 2008, the university's six-year graduation rate is 16%. This graduation rate is less than one-third the national graduation level of 57%.

From 2004 to 2010, 1214 students have graduated from NSC, over 500 of them earning nursing degrees. Approximately 45% of Nevada State College's students are first-generation college students. An equivalent percentage are members of racial or ethnic minorities.

Due to state budget cuts, there have been proposals to close down Nevada State College. However, in March 2010 members of the Board of Regents expressed their continued support of Nevada State College despite budget cuts.

Nevada State College does not currently have any athletic programs. The school's colors are black and gold and its mascot is a scorpion.
