Build a Better Life

Since 1961, CCCC has been helping adult learners in Chatham, Harnett and Lee counties gain the knowledge, skills and experience to launch or advance their career—or change careers. CCCC offers:

  • Hands-on training: At CCCC, you’ll get hands-on experience. Take students in our Audio and Video Production Technology program. They grow their skills through our student radio stations and cable channels. And CCCC’s cosmetology students build skills with apprenticeships and more.
  • Personalized support: Your success is our focus at CCCC—from small classes that enable you to have close working relationships with faculty to our Academic Assistance Center, which offers free peer and community tutors, to one-on-one coaching and content-specific workshops.
  • Seamless transition: If your plan is to earn an associate degree and then transfer to a four-year institution to finish your bachelor’s degree, you’ll have a smooth transition with CCCC. From our associate in engineering to our teacher preparation degrees, CCCC can get you to your next step.

Take classes designed to fit your busy life.

To build better skills, you need flexibility. From our main campus in Pittsboro to our Harnett Health Sciences Center in Lillington to our Howard-James Industry Training Center in Sanford, CCCC has locations all across Chatham, Harnett and Lee counties. From in-person classes to online courses to a mix of both, CCCC gives you the flexibility you need as a busy adult learner balancing work, family and more.

Pay tuition that’s just a fraction of the price of four-year schools.

Central Carolina Community College is committed to breaking down barriers that might keep you from pursuing your education. That includes financial barriers. First, by choosing CCCC, you’ll pay less—far less—than you would at a four-year school. And armed with a CCCC education, you’ll see the return on your investment countless times over. By completing the FAFSA form (we can help!), you’ll open doors to federal financial aid. CCCC also offers:
