Our instructors are doing their best to engage students for maximum learning. That is a challenge in remote and online situations. Take a sneak peek at some class recordings of our resident "mad scientist" (aka Dr. Joseph Villa) doing what he does best in the Chemistry Lab!


We are here for you

We are here for you

There is no doubt that we are living in challenging times. However, this is the BEST time to invest in yourself by expanding your knowledge and increasing your skills. It does not matter where you are in your journey. If you are a dislocated worker (unemployed), college stop out, newly graduated high school senior, or GED completer, UCC wants you to succeed! That is why we have all kinds of services available for you. So, even though you may be remote, you are not alone! Take a look at the UCC departments that are ready to help you.
