Welcome from President Towner


Your Success Starts at Coahoma
Welcome to Coahoma County Community College’s website.  CCC is the best place to start
or restart your education! I say that confidently.  If you start your college degree at CCC,
you will save thousands of dollars in tuition and fees as compared to starting at a four-year college or university.  Studies show that our graduates do as well, and often better, at four-year institutions than students who started there as freshmen. Here you will find affordable, quality higher education being delivered in small class settings, led by outstanding faculty with credentials from colleges and universities nationwide.

CCC believes education is vital for building strong families, vibrant communities and skilled workers. As a learning-centered institution that is committed to excellence, my vision for
CCC is to be recognized for its dedication for academic success that fosters life-long learning, economic empowerment, entrepreneurial development and skills enhancement.

Each member of our faculty shares a very important trait - a commitment to excellence in teaching. Located in the historically rich Mississippi Delta, our class sizes are small, and that means our exceptional faculty is able to focus attention on helping you succeed. We work to ensure a quality-filled, multi-cultural learning environment, with a broad range of innovative academic and student service programs that will enable you to attain success in life.

Whether you are a first year student, seeking to advance in your current job, or have made the decision to transition into another career, CCC is your life transforming and empowerment conduit. Our campus location in Clarksdale, along with our Office of Educational Outreach extends educational services across five Mississippi counties in Charleston, Marks, Mound Bayou, Rosedale, Shaw, Tunica and Webb, will allow you to attend when it's convenient for you - early mornings, days, evenings, or weekends.

If you allow someone else to define your destiny, you do not educate yourself on the options for your future. By attending CCC, you can invest your time in those areas that will strengthen your readiness to compete locally and globally. I encourage you to seize this opportunity to study, learn and advance. Through your CCC experience, you will become an informed citizen - committed to excellence, creative and responsive to changing times and requirements, with the ability to see the world and issues from a variety of perspectives, and to make informed decisions.

If you have any questions, please call us at 1-800-844-1CCC or visit our web site www.coahomacc.edu.

I look forward to seeing your success start here.
Dr. Valmadge Towner
