“In Scientia et Servitio” (In Science and Service) The Northern Negros State College of Science and Technology draws inspiration from the Christian ideal of service. The College educates students for leadership and responsibility defined in terms of service to others and society. A college education lacking this dimension is an education deficient in moral foundation.
The Northern Negros State College of Science and Technology (NONESCOST), Sagay City, Negros Occidental is a public, non-sectarian, non-profit institution established through the efforts of Congressman Alfredo G. Marañon, Jr. in order to promote science and technology in the service area.
Republic Act 8448 converted the school into the Northern Negros State College of Science and Technology in Old Sagay, Sagay City from Iloilo State College of Fisheries – Sagay Branch (ISCOF-SB) which was established by virtue of Batas Pambansa Blg. 359.
