Thank you for choosing Contra Costa College to help meet your educational and career goals!

Nearly 7,000 students come to CCC each semester for opportunities to earn associate degrees, complete certificates, and upgrade job skills. We also offer a range of prospects outside the classroom, to enhance your college experience through student activities, leadership opportunities, and athletics.

A proud Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI,) Contra Costa College has served the very diverse populations of west county more than 70 years. That history is the strong foundation from which we offer high-quality instruction and support services. Our commitment to social and racial justice can be seen in all aspects of campus life, from program offerings like La Raza and African American Studies, to learning communities like the Puente Project and Per Ankh, and student organizations like Rainbow Movement and the Muslim Student Association.

We know our students’ academic journeys are not always easy. That’s why our outstanding faculty, classified professionals, and administrators are so focused on your success. We offer many support services to help eliminate educational barriers and allow you to realize your full potential. And, our flexible day, evening and online class schedules are here to offer university transfer and job preparedness to students who otherwise might not have access.

We are active and contributing members of our community, who value our connections with industry, government, and educational partners. These partnerships create unique opportunities for the college and pathways for our students into universities and employment. We also have transfer agreements with California State Universities, University of California, and many private higher-education institutions to facilitate your transfer into baccalaureate programs.

We look forward to you becoming a CCC Comet so you can soar to new heights!
