Welcome to Northwestern CT Community College from the Guided Pathways Advising Office. We are excited to have you here with us and eager to help you embark on this journey.

We invite all new students to attend a New Student Enrollment Session to review the steps to a successful semester, become familiar with MyCommNet and register for first semester courses. Please note, all sessions will take place in person at our Joyner Health Science building in room 216 (near the entrance to Route 8 South). See campus map

Our priority is to ensure a smooth transition into our community.  If none of the dates work for you, please contact Athalie Cayo at ACayo@nwcc.commnet.edu to make other arrangements.

We hope to see you soon!
