Naugatuck Valley Community College Ranks Among Top Colleges in the Nation

With the concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic this year, community college is a more viable option than ever before. According to Wallet Hub, Connecticut has some of the best community colleges in the nation. https://wallethub.com/edu/best-worst-community-colleges/15076/

Affordable and accessible, Naugatuck Valley Community College offers a top quality education for students who want to pursue a wide range of career options. WalletHub compared 698 community colleges across 18 key indicators of cost and quality: NVCC ranked in the top 8% of all the colleges and #3 in the state of Connecticut.

Dr. Lisa Dresdner, NVCC’s Interim CEO, emphasized how proud she is of the faculty and staff who consistently fulfill NVCC’s mission and vision of putting students at the center of all we do. “Right now everyone is working non-stop to make sure students who are returning to college as well as all of our new students are able to get advised and registered before classes begin next week; we want to ensure that they’re all on the path toward meeting their goals.”  

Returning students can make appointments to work virtually with advisors in the Center for Academic Planning and Student Success, and new students can still apply!

Classes begin in Waterbury and Danbury on Wednesday, August 26.
