Becoming Connecticut State Community College

As a part of the statewide vision to make a transformative, accessible education available to all residents of Connecticut, a merger of Connecticut’s 12 community colleges is underway. In Fall 2023, Connecticut State Community College (CT State), a statewide college comprised of all Connecticut’s current community college locations, will open its doors. Here are some important facts students need to know.
  • The final commencement ceremony for Three Rivers Community College will be held in May 2023. Ceremonies will continue to be held at each location as campuses of CT State.
  • Students continuing their studies beyond summer term 2023 will be matched with the CT State program that most closely aligns with their Spring 2023 major and is offered at the Three Rivers Community College location,

  • Students who begin Associate degree programs in January 2022 will complete their degree at the merged college, Connecticut State Community College,
  • The College is committed to students completing their education with a minimum of disruption and staying in touch with your advisor/program coordinator is essential,
