Top 10 Reasons You Should Attend CNC
CNC has been providing post-secondary education for more than 35 years.
Helping students learn is our top priority.
University faculty are often heavily involved in research and many classes are taught by graduate students or teaching assistants. At CNC, all faculty are professional instructors who bring a wealth of practical experience to the classroom. Our faculty have a well-deserved reputation for being friendly and caring.
Small enough to know you, big enough to grow you.
CNC's commitment to teaching is also reflected in our small class sizes. You will receive personal attention during and outside of class.
As post secondary tuition skyrockets, CNC remains one of the best values in higher education. We continue to have one of the lowest tuition rates among public post-secondary institutions.
Your success is our success.
We are fully staffed to provide all the services you need to have a successful educational experience.
