Students tell me that CLC exceeds their expectations by providing an exceptional education at a lower price.

Each year over a thousand students graduate from CLC with skills, confidence, and experiences to succeed in the workplace or transfer to the university of their choice. 9 out of 10 CLC graduates find a job related to their program major.

CLC has more than 60 career programs from health, computers, advanced manufacturing, law enforcement and more. And, an Associate in Arts Degree which makes transfer easy. Whether you have a career goal in mind or are undecided, CLC will help you further your educational and career path.

Employers tell us the workforce of the future is here today. So CLC is bringing new, cutting-edge learning experiences to students. CLC has hundreds of online classes already available with new classes coming online each semester.

CLC Students are….

They know quality when they see it and they know CLC is the smart choice.

They could spend more money on tuition at other colleges and universities, but why? CLC will get them where they need to go at a fraction of the cost.

They know that going to college far from home doesn’t guarantee success. They are confident that CLC will help them reach their goals and dreams.

They earn associate’s degrees and go on to complete bachelor’s and advanced degrees at universities of their choice. Career program students graduate in one to two years and start great new careers in the area and around the globe.
