Welcome to Our College!
It is a joy to welcome you to Naugatuck Valley Community College, a caring and dynamic institution where students always come first. Surrounded by splendid gardens and grounds and served by talented and credentialed faculty, staff and administrators at our Waterbury and Danbury Campuses, the College offers comprehensive educational opportunities for those who are just beginning their education and those who are continuing their personal journey to a better future.
Our catalog presents prospective students with a rich and diverse array of career and academic programs, including allied health, aviation, dance, digital arts, early childhood education, engineering technology, manufacturing, horticulture, hospitality management, human services, liberal arts and sciences and many more. In addition, we participate in multiple transfer and articulation agreements designed to facilitate student transfers to the Connecticut State Universities and beyond.
Naugatuck Valley Community College (NVCC) takes pride in its historic role as an engine for change in the lives of our students and in the communities we serve through strong relationships with Connecticut agencies that promote educational, labor, economic and community development initiatives. To that end, we offer programs designed to inspire and promote engagement both on campus and in our communities. Our students benefit from the evening bus service which their predecessors helped bring to the citizens of Waterbury, the federal GEAR UP grant funding for college preparation and the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center which supports local workforce needs.
Our varied degree, certificate and non-credit program offerings make Naugatuck Valley Community College the place to be. A new academic year brings the promise of exciting new opportunities for students. In Waterbury, our learning commons along the 5th floor afford students quiet places to study or socialize. Our Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) offers tutoring services for all students and the Center for Academic Planning & Student Success (CAPSS) provides mentoring, academic advisement and counseling. These services are replicated on a smaller scale at our growing Danbury Campus. Whether on our Waterbury or Danbury Campus, NVCC is alive with cultural activities for students, their families and the communities we serve.
I am joined by the entire NVCC family in welcoming you to what will surely be a challenging and rewarding experience.
