School Details

Founded in 1962 as “Rangely College,” CNCC now serves students on two campuses, two service centers and online. The two main campuses in Craig and Rangely are 90 miles apart in the mountains and canyons of Northwestern Colorado, with two service centers located in Meeker and Oak Creek.

Students can earn an Associate of Arts degree from CNCC that will fulfill general education requirements and prepares them for a bachelor's degree in English, communications, humanities, social sciences, law, and other fields. In degree programs, credits are guaranteed to transfer to four-year colleges and universities in Colorado to fulfill most, if not all, general education requirements for a bachelor’s degree. Students earning their associate's degree save substantially on tuition and other costs and they get the personal attention of a small college.

Online programs at CNCC are delivered through a technology called Virtual Classroom. Instruction is a cutting-edge, educational opportunity for students to enroll in classes from any location where internet access is available. Classes are held at designated times and days; are filled with 6 – 15 fellow classmates; and taught real-time by a qualified technologically trained teacher.
