Why Choose Cloud?

why choose cloud, admissions

be challenged, small class sizesBE PREPARED
At Cloud, we are dedicated to delivering our students high quality, innovative, affordable, and accessible educational opportunities that prepare them to be critical thinkers and lifelong learners. Whether our students plan to continue their education or plan to enter the workforce, they are prepared when they leave Cloud.
In a survey of our 2015 graduates, 88% said they would recommend Cloud to a friend and when asked if they had it to do over again, would they come to CCCC, 86% said YES.

BE CHALLENGED
At universities most of the classes you will take in the first two years will be taught by Graduate Teaching Assistants - basically college students working toward advanced degrees.
At Cloud, 83% of our instructors already hold advanced degrees, and they will be the ones teaching you.

BE HANDS ON
Our students can learn by doing from the moment they step foot on campus as first-year students. These are valuable experiences that most universities cannot offer students until their third or fourth year of college. Some of these hand-on experiences include: a live animal unit in our Agriculture department, a human cadaver lab, a student athletic training program, student media opportunities and an on campus wind farm.

BE PRACTICAL
When you choose to do your first two years of college at Cloud, you are choosing savings! Attending Cloud County Community College is the practical choice when considering the cost and the savings in tuition and fees per credit hour. You could save a substantial amount of money
by choosing to complete your first two years of college at Cloud.

BE CULTURED
At Cloud, you can have the full college experience! We have students attend Cloud from all over the world, and we celebrate this culture and diversity in many different ways.

BE NOTICED
At a larger college, you might find yourself in classes with 100 or more students. At Cloud, our class sizes are smaller (general education classes capped at 30 students), so you can actually get to know your classmates and instructors. Our faculty and staff are student centered and will go out of their way to make sure you have the best experience at Cloud!

BE GUARANTEED
The Kansas Board of Regents has now approved 56 courses for guaranteed transfer among all Kansas public postsecondary institutions. A student who completes these courses at any Kansas public community college, technical college, or university can be certain that he or she can transfer that course to any other public institution in Kansas in pursuit of a degree or credential.
Students who transfer to a Kansas public university from a Kansas public community college or technical college (or vice versa) are eligible for Reverse Transfer, which allows for the attainment of any associate degree for which one is eligible along the way to additional certificates and degrees. Within a student’s first semester, those who transfer coursework from a public university, community college or technical college will be notified if they are eligible to be considered for reverse transfer degree status and which courses are needed to finish the related degree. Students who then complete the coursework for a given associate degree will be eligible to receive that degree, administered automatically by correspondence between the new institution and the university, community college or technical college the student last attended.
