Northern Wyoming Community College District
Student success is our priority. We support this goal by emphasizing hands-on learning and personal attention. Our strong district model allows us to offer a variety of high-quality degree options to meet student needs.
NWCCD serves almost 5,000 students per year across three counties. It includes Gillette College, Sheridan College, and an outreach center in Buffalo. Our two-year Associate of Science (AS), Associate of Arts (AA), and Associate of Fine Arts (AFA) degrees prepare students to transfer to a four-year college or university. Our one-year Certificates of Completion (CoC) and two-year Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degrees prepare students to enter the workforce in specific career fields. In addition, we offer skills-focused industry training, professional development classes, and personal enrichment courses.
We are committed to serving our communities, helping students complete their degrees and supporting them with millions of dollars in scholarships and financial aid each year.
We are stronger as a district because we bring so many choices and opportunities for students to learn and succeed. See how you can be stronger with us.
Community Means Opportunity
NWCCD is proud of the support it receives from our community and local residents. Our Fine and Performing Arts programs are center stage for students and the local audiences who pack the house for each performance. Local employers are eager to hire our Diesel, Welding, Industrial Electric, and Machine Tool graduates. Our Dental Hygiene and Health Sciences classes and our many Education and Business courses are key stepping stones that prepare students for today’s professional landscape.
