Learn more about Sheridan College in Johnson County

Northern Wyoming Community College District (NWCCD) includes Sheridan College, Sheridan College in Johnson County, and continues to offer accredited college courses, certificates, and degrees to students located in Campbell County. These offerings will continue to be made available to students on the Gillette College campus, operated by the Gillette Community College District (GCCD), until GCCD earns its own independent accreditation.

In 2020, we ranked 5th Best Community College in the Nation (Wallethub). You will find our world-class facilities and residence halls are similar to a four-year university, but we’re small enough that everyone knows you by name.

Located in northern Wyoming, you can find our campuses close to the Bighorn Mountains, the Black Hills of South Dakota, Yellowstone National Park, and much more! Our strong partnerships with local industry and locations in some of Wyoming’s most thriving towns mean our students’ opportunities are endless.


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