About

The North Carolina Community College System oversees an estimated 840,000 students enrolled at one of the 58 community colleges that make up the system. This accounts for 1 in 9 N.C. citizens 18 and older. The NC system is the third largest in the nation, based on the number of colleges. The mission of the NC Community College System is to open the door to high-quality, accessible educational opportunities that minimize barriers to post-secondary education, to maximize student success, to develop a globally and multi-culturally competent workforce, and to improve the lives and well-being of individuals. This mission is accomplished by education, training and retraining for the workforce including basic skills and literacy education, occupational and pre-baccalaureate programs; support for economic development through services to and in partnership with business and industry and in collaboration with the University of North Carolina System and private colleges and universities; and services to communities and individuals which improve the quality of life.
