Nigerian College of Accountancy (NCA), is an educational institution in Jos, Nigeria established in 1994 that is operated by Association of National Accountants of Nigeria (ANAN).

NCA is the training arm of ANAN, following International Federation of Accountants standards and pronouncements in training its students. It is a University member of the International Association for Accounting Education and Research (IAAER). The institution is headed by Director-General Dr. Joseph F. Adebisi. Accountancy graduates with a B.Sc. and Higher National Diploma from Nigerian Universities and Polytechnics qualify for admission to a three-year training program at the Nigerian College of Accountancy. On successful completion of the examinations they earn the designation of Certified National Accountant and qualify to join ANAN. The Nigerian College of Accountancy is a Post-graduate Professional College established under Section 8(1)(d) and Section 20 of ANAN Act No. 76 of 1993, as the training arm of the Association. The College first opened its doors to students in 1984 at Barkin Ladi in Plateau State under an Administrative Secretary, who was then designated, Coordinator. In the very first 1984/85 set, only ten professional students were admitted. The figure dropped to four students in 1985/86, and six students in 1986/87 sessions, before rising marginally to fifteen in the 1987/88 session. As a result of the unusually difficult situation faced by the College in those early days, the College temporarily shut its doors in 1988. However, with the promulgation of ANAN Act in 1993, the College picked up dramatically in pace and tempo.

The College operates its campus situated at College of Accountancy Road, Kwall, Bassa Local Government, near Jos, Plateau State. Below is a table showing the College sessions and number of students from inception to the 2013/2014 session:
