Community College Connection


See yourself at St. Cloud State

Prospective Students

Get a jump on your four-year education by enrolling in the Community College Connection (CCC) Program, which offers structure and support for a smooth transition into college.

Our faculty and staff are committed to student success through support and engaging students in their coursework, campus and community. The overarching goal of the program is to help students develop successful skills and strategies so they are prepared when they begin with their four year coursework. 

Participants take their first higher education courses through St. Cloud Technical and Community College (SCTCC). Courses are taught by SCTCC faculty, but held at St. Cloud State. Once a student has completed 18 college-level credits with a 2.0 GPA or higher, they are eligible to transfer to St. Cloud State. Students in the CCC program are considered members of both campuses, with access to resources at each institution.
