Updated CCSNH Site Highlights Resources and Opportunities for Students
CONCORD, NH – The needs of today’s prospective college students are changing, and the Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH) is addressing those demands in a variety of ways. One is by creating a new central website more focused on the programs, resources and services that are offered across the college system.
“Over time our website had become too much of an archive instead of a resource for students,” said Shannon Reid, Executive Director of Government Affairs and Communications. “The improvements we made highlight the many pathways to success for traditional and non-traditional students, whether they are already enrolled in one of our seven community colleges or looking to enroll.”
An increasing number of website visitors use smart phones, so the reimagined www.ccsnh.edu website features a more mobile friendly layout that offers visitors a better user experience. Over time, the site will feature additional videos and other content users can access easily.
The new ccsnh.edu also presents users with information that matters most to them:
- Evolving opportunities for traditional and non-traditional students
- Workforce training opportunities
- Pathways for career changers
- High school partnerships
- More prominent access to information about each of the individual colleges
The site emphasizes the affordability, convenience, quality of teaching and more than 200 degree and certificate programs offered through New Hampshire’s seven community colleges.
Beyond having the lowest tuition in the state, New Hampshire’s Community Colleges offer degrees that lead to high-demand careers in fields in healthcare, business, technology and more, and serve as a pathway to four-year colleges and universities.
About CCSNH: The Community College System of NH consists of seven colleges offering associate degree and certificate programs aligned with economic needs, professional training, transfer pathways to four-year degrees, and dual-credit partnerships with NH high schools. The System’s colleges are Great Bay Community College in Portsmouth; Lakes Region Community College in Laconia; Manchester Community College; Nashua Community College; NHTI-Concord’s Community College; River Valley Community College in Claremont and Keene; and White Mountains Community College in Berlin, Littleton and North Conway.
