New Student Programs


At Central Carolina Community College (CCCC), New Student Programs help students transition smoothly into college life, build a strong sense of community, and explore all that the campus has to offer. We provide a variety of initiatives aimed at fostering academic success, personal growth, and meaningful connections.

From the Brothers of Excellence, Sisters in Success, and NC Reconnect programs, which offer mentorship and support, to the C2 College Connections Summer Bridge Program that supports students as they transition to college, our programs are tailored to meet the diverse needs of our student body. Additionally, our "How to Thrive at CCCC" series and Week of Welcome (WOW) events ensure that new and returning students feel welcomed, supported, and prepared in their educational journey.
