Family & Community

Family. Community. Individualism. When someone goes to college, they bring their family and community with them. Earning a college degree is a great benefit for an individual but it is terrific benefit for the individual's family and community as well. Why? Because when someone can earn a degree and then enter the workforce with skills and knowledge, they can success professionally and financially and that helps not only the individual, but the family and the community as well. Going to college is a group effort. It takes a lot of support, a lot of help, and a lot of determination from the student, their family and community. At Corning Community College, we believe in community, we believe in support and we will work with you every step of the way to navigate the mysteries of financial aid, the array of programs and courses and guide you on your way to a 4-year college, the workplace or whatever future you choose. We believe in community so much, in fact, it's our middle name!
