This college isn't just a community it is a home. Taking a semester off lead me to apply to Naugatuck CC and I have thrived since! I was a B average non-active highschool student and all of that changed at this college. I maintained a 3.8 average, participated in so many campus activities and opportunities and it has really instilled maturity and growth. The faculty has been so helpful inside and outside of the classes, they care about their pupils. This college is a community that has your back, its a community that cars about your personal journey and is an amazing starting or continuing point to higher education.

After my first semester at Naugatuck Valley Community College, I am very pleased. Very large campus for a community college, there is plenty of parking which is more of an issue than you'd think. Elevators and handicap service. Classes are challenging and interesting. Professors are very educated and always open for help. Free tutoring is available all hours college is open, and is a great resource and extremely helpful! Super accessable also, walk ins are welcome. Love it
As an adult learner I can’t stress the level of flexibility this college offers. From early morning, days, evening and even weekend classes available! Some of the best professors I’ve had were at this school. Some of the worst were at Universities where you are just a number. Glad I decided to purse my nursing career at NVCC I just wish I had decided to go here sooner! It’s extremely affordable with payment plan options available. The campus is easy to navigate and parking is not bad for a very popular community college.
