Established in 1961, Cape Cod Community College (CCCC) is situated in West Barnstable, a tranquil community in the largely residential Cape Cod area. One of 15 schools that comprise the Massachusetts community college network, CCCC offers associate degrees and a variety of certificate and diploma programs with a maximum duration of two years of study. Many graduates opt to continue their educations at nearby four-year universities such as UMass, Salem State College, and Boston University, among others.


The maximum level of education is either a two-year Associate in Arts (AA) or Associate in Science (AS) degree, with credits transferable to many of Massachusetts’s finest four year institutions of higher education. Certificate and diploma programs, as well as continuing education and similar programs, are also available.

This is a comprehensive school built to meet the demands of the local community. Academics are divided into seven different departments: Arts and Communication; Business; Health Sciences; Language and Literature; Mathematics; Natural Sciences and Applied Technology; and Social Sciences, Behavioral Sciences, and Human Services.

Unique Programs

The Office of Advanced Studies has various unique alliances with other colleges and universities offering bachelor’s and master’s degrees, giving local students the option to further their studies without having to move elsewhere. For example, students can take advantage of the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Human Development from Lesley University as well as a Bachelor of Science in Nursing or a Bachelor of Science in General Business Administration from the University of Massachusetts.


Prospective students must have a high school diploma or GED. The school also has an “Ability to Benefit” option, which may be helpful for applicants that have neither graduated nor received a GED and currently not enrolled in an educational program. The deadline for submitting application materials is set in mid-August for the Fall semester applicants and early January for the Spring semester.

Like most community colleges, the school has an open admissions policy. However, select programs have more rigorous admissions standards due to prerequisites, limited resources, or high popularity among students. Programs that have special admissions policies include the Paramedic and Nursing programs, the Dental Hygiene program, Massage Therapy, Medical Assisting, and finally the Diagnostic Technician program.


Living and studying in Cape Cod is a privileged and delightful experience, and the student body here is quite aware of this fact. The school does not have on-campus housing options, but there are many different clubs and organizations operating on-campus to make the student experience that much more dynamic, including the Honors Club, the Innkeepers’ Club, The Mainsheet (the school’s student news publication), the Rotaract Club, and many others.
