Welcome Students!

As you embark on your educational journey with us, I want to welcome you to Northwestern Connecticut Community College, “The small college that does great things!"  We are the on-ramp to your future.  We offer the classes that you need in a supportive environment with state of the art technology, and faculty and staff who inspire a love of learning. 

At a time when everyone is concerned about paying for college, our affordable tuition and highly transferable courses will make it possible for you to get the training and education that you need.  Our students understand that pursuing an education beyond high school is critical to a successful future in the 21st century.  Our goal is to give you the skills necessary to compete in a technological world, in careers that maybe haven't even been invented yet!

Whether you come to us for an Associate’s degree, and transfer on to earn a Bachelor’s degree, or for a certificate to retrain yourself, or just to learn something new that you always wanted to learn, we thank you for coming to the right place!

The Northwestern Connecticut Community College family joins me in welcoming you to our community of learners.  Make the most of your time on campus and get involved!
