Colorado Northwestern Community College’s primary campus is located in Rangely. Depending on what you want to study, CNCC has the perfect surroundings and facilities to meet your needs. Founded in 1962 as “Rangely College,” CNCC now serves nearly 1,000 students on two campuses, two service centers and online. The two main campuses in Craig and Rangely are 90 miles apart in the mountains and canyons of Northwestern Colorado, with two service centers located in Meeker and Oak Creek.

CNCC serves a diverse student population, ranging from traditional college students right out of high school, to a diverse population of adults who are seeking to advance their careers, or perhaps pursue a second one. The programs offered are as diverse as the students. They offer world-class Arts & Science Degree programs that feature guaranteed transfer to Colorado four-year institutions. They also offer a rich array of Career and Technical programs designed to give students the training they need to get to work now.

One of the most attractive things about CNCC is that they are centered in one of the richest recreational and scenic areas in Colorado. It’s Colorado like you’ve never seen it before, with deep, high mountain canyons; impossibly wide vistas, wild untamed rivers; and solitude that inspires.
