Welcome to Corning Community College, located in the heart of the Finger Lakes. CCC’s main campus is located on 550 acres on Spencer Hill with a complex of eight buildings and the only College in the US with an observatory, planetarium, and nature center. CCC also offers a variety of services within the community at our offsite locations throughout Steuben, Chemung and Schuyler County and serve over 5,500 students.
CCC is a member of the State University of New York (SUNY), and is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and the National League for Nursing. In August 2010, Corning Community College was named amongst America's top 50 community colleges.
One of the great things about CCC is that we offer an extensive yet affordable range of educational, cultural, and social opportunities to a diverse population of full– and part–time learners. We focus on student achievement by stressing quality teaching and personal attention. Our emphasis on high standards, sustainability, and technological advancement provides a flexible learning environment in which students are prepared for a life of service to their professions and their communities in a globally interdependent society. We promote intellectual and personal growth, meet the educational needs of the community through transfer, career, certificate, and training programs, and enhance economic development. Faculty members are devoted to teaching and personal advising of students.
I encourage you to continue exploring our college through this website and a personal visit to the campus to discover all the ways in which CCC can benefit you. I am confident you will find that at CCC you can Choose Your Path to Success.
