Welcome to Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®), an innovative and inclusive learning community dedicated to your success and completion. In these uncertain times, we are delighted that you have selected Tri-C as the place to continue your education and career development. Our faculty, staff and administrators are poised to assist you in reaching your educational goals.

A Tri-C education is both powerful and valuable. Committed to student success and completion, our College has intentionally designed nine clear and structured educational pathways that guide students as they progress from their point of entry through attainment of credentials and careers. Through clearly articulated course sequences and program learning outcomes, these pathways promote a student's ability to navigate and complete one of many programs. Embedded within these pathways are stackable certificates that allow students to earn credentials on their journey toward graduation, transfer or employment. 

The availability of on-ground, online and hybrid course options reflects Tri-C’s ongoing efforts to adapt to challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic while allowing students to continue progressing toward graduation. You will appreciate the flexibility, choice and convenience of courses that fit your schedule and lifestyle.

Our four attractive campuses offer outstanding amenities, including wireless internet, wellness facilities, libraries and study areas. We are providing new technology and equipment and expanding training facilities to enhance the quality of your Tri-C education.

Services such as academic advising, tutoring, career counseling, Tri-C 24/7 and mentoring are available both online and in person to help you plan your academic journey and succeed in achieving your goals. Our vibrant Office of Student Life, Athletics and Recreation invites you to get involved in student government, collegiate athletics, volunteer activities and a wide array of clubs and organizations.

This is not just our College — it is yours. We invite you to take full advantage of the many opportunities to make it your own and aid in your success. As you move forward on your educational journey, I trust you will find that Tri-C is where futures begin.
