Fall 2023 semester credit classes start on August 29 with a mix of on-campus, online, and hybrid course options.
CT State campuses offer hundreds of associate degrees and certificates as well as short-term career training certifications that prepare students for transfer to four-year degrees and transition into the workforce with such programs as advanced manufacturing technology, business, cybersecurity, data science, early childhood education, information technology, health care, pathway to teaching careers, and technology. Students can complete a certificate in as little as six months, and a degree in two years.
Students intending to attend a CT State campus for the first time should start by applying online. Applications for the upcoming fall 2023 semester can be found at www.ctstate.edu/apply.
Prospective credit students are encouraged to apply for financial aid by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. Connecticut high school graduates who have never attended college before may be eligible for free college through PACT: Pledge to Advance Connecticut, which is accessible to students on a space-available basis. Student support services, job placement assistance and financial aid are also available.
Registration for career training certifications is ongoing, with programs and classes in health care, information technology, manufacturing, real estate, culinary, veterinary assistant, and more. Scholarships for information technology, health care and manufacturing classes are available through CareerConneCT. Certified dislocated workers and those receiving SNAP assistance may also be eligible for scholarships and tuition waivers for many continuing education programs. Some programs are approved for Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) funding through the CT Department of Labor. For more information, visit www.ctstate.edu/ce.
