Student success is our priority. We achieve this by offering students 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 approximately 5,000 students per year across three counties. Our District 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.

Mission: NWCCD welcomes all learners, empowers student success, encourages and strengthens community development.

Vision: NWCCD will be the premier higher education institution in the region; we will provide all students with a diverse range of experiences to prepare for a dynamic future.

We are stronger as a District because together we bring so many choices and opportunities for students across our service area to learn and succeed.
