Coconino Community College (CCC), a local institution in Flagstaff, Arizona, serves nearly 10,000 students through its four campus locations. The school was founded in 1991, and since then has expanded rapidly to accommodate its growing student population.

Classes are designed to help students earn diplomas and certificates in a variety of subjects while choosing to do so in a traditional classroom setting, online, or through ITV (Interactive TV). Students can also enroll in a transfer program and move on to a four-year college after graduation. The school has even partnered with Northern Arizona University with the CCC2NAU program, which gears students for transfer to the university to obtain further education and degrees.


Associate degrees, certificate programs, community learning programs, and continuing education are all offered here. Students grow through on-campus lectures, virtual courses, and an interactive TV system. Classes are provided in three academic divisions: Liberal Arts & Sciences, Career & Technical Education, and Community & Corporate Learning.

Liberal Arts & Sciences

The Liberal Arts & Sciences division is designed to provide a strong, multi-disciplinary academic foundation and well-rounded curricula. Students can choose from ten different associate degree paths, including environmental studies, dance, anthropology, psychology, and general studies. Most of the tracks in this division allow students to transfer to a four-year university.

Career & Technical Education

The Career & Technical Education division offers an extensive array of classes in five departments. Students can work towards careers in business, education, nursing, information technology, public safety, and more. Course tracks like the Construction Technology Management program and the Fire Science program are designed to offer a skills upgrade to make students more competitive in the marketplace.

Community & Corporate Learning

The highly specialized courses in the Community & Corporate Learning division are designed to give students the professional development necessary to meet specific job requirements. Local corporations are welcome to partner with the school to offer Customized Training or Job Training to their employees. Classes like Advanced Excel, Customer Service, and Spanish for Managers help local businesses improve efficiency and ensure the quality performance of their employees.

Unique Programs

Programs for High School Students

For students who are still in high school, a dual enrollment program is offered that allows students to take college courses concurrently with their high school curriculum. Students can also opt to take classes in addition to their high school courses, enrolling in one or two classes per semester, depending on their schedule.

Tech Prep

The Arizona Tech Prep program, also known as Programs of Study, is designed to reinforce traditional learning with new teaching approaches and a restructuring of curricula. As part of a national educational initiative, it streamlines the school system so that students can fulfill requirements for many different programs faster. Under Tech Prep, high school students can earn articulated credit that is recognized at the college level.


The school is an open-admissions college, which means that it welcomes any student to apply and be accepted to one of its academic programs. Prospective students can access the online application system through the Registration portion of the website.

Three types of admissions are available: Regular admissions is for students with a high school diploma or the equivalent; Special admission is for non-high school graduates, and limits students to no more than 6 credit hours; and Non-credit admission is for students who want to take fee-based Community Enrichment Courses. During the application process, you will indicate which admission type you are seeking and learn about the requirements for each one.

In addition to the application, prospective students must provide evidence of lawful residency or presence in the U.S. This may include: a U.S. passport, a U.S. birth certificate, a valid Arizona driver’s license, or a valid Arizona state ID.

Financial Aid

Students seeking financial aid must complete the FAFSA, which is available for free online at www.fafsa.gov. This form determines a student’s eligibility for federal aid money, including grants, loans, and work-study programs. It can also be used as a supplementary document in seeking financial or need-based aid from other third-party sources.

The school has many resources available to help students work through the FAFSA process. Visit the Financial Aid website to find answers to frequently asked questions, tips on preparing the FAFSA form, and a financial aid calendar with all of the relevant dates. Students can also make an appointment with a financial aid advisor to discuss their situation in person.

All students have access to counseling services, testing services, and disability services. The S.T.A.R.T.

Additional School Information

CCC is going green!
