Message From the Administrator in Charge

Hello and welcome to Clinton Community College, where you will be part of a wonderful, supportive community.

We are a community of dedicated faculty, staff and administrators, each committed to providing you with the best educational experiences possible. We are here to support, encourage, and work with you on your academic journey. Your success is our priority.

Our mission is to provide educational opportunities in an inclusive and safe environment that empowers individuals to create their own paths to personal and professional growth. Whether you plan to study with us to begin a new career, to advance your current career, or to explore possibilities, we give you a tremendous opportunity to achieve your aspirations. 

We are proud of the fantastic learning environments we have on our campus and the diversity of excellent academic degree programs and certificates we offer. 

During your study with us, you will have the opportunity to use our student-friendly Learning Commons in the historic Moore Building, where you will find our outstanding student support services like our tutoring center, library and the center for connection and creativity. Cougar Athletics, theater and many other student activities add to the spirit of campus life.

We are also excited as we plan for our move to a new location on the campus of SUNY Plattsburgh for classes beginning in fall 2025. Work on this is ongoing and details are updated on our New Location webpage.

I wish you a successful, rewarding, and exciting academic journey with us at Clinton Community College and look forward to seeing you on campus.
