In 1961 Clovis Community College (CCC), located in Clovis, New Mexico, got its starts when Eastern New Mexico University formed a branch campus to offer evening college courses at Clovis High School in cooperation with Clovis Municipal Schools. Today, this two-year higher education institution offers associate degrees, and continues to work closely with Eastern New Mexico University. By 1978 the citizens of Clovis voted to support the construction of a new campus donated by Ervin Schepps in 1970, and the new and current campus offered its first classes in 1980.


Students enrolled here participate in one- to two-year transfer and/or associate degree awarding programs in areas like academy based criminal justice, automotive technology, fine arts, general students, early childhood education, liberal arts, nursing, psychology, radiologic technology and legal assistant studies.

Online Degrees

Online degrees are available in liberal arts, business, computers, criminal justice, and paralegal, with certificates in a wide variety of computer and programming subjects plus administrative assistant and business assistant.
