Since it moved to its current location at 183 Main Street, Danbury Center is enrolling record numbers of students who want a close, affordable college degree that can be easily transferred to four-year colleges and universities. With classes located the city’s vibrant downtown, the Center is easy to get to and within walking distance to local bus routes, the Danbury Public Library, restaurants and other services and amenities.
Danbury Center students learn among a diverse group of close to 1,000 peers that includes recent high school graduates as well as working adults. Students may take college credit courses that count toward an associate degree from NVCC or that can be transferred to a four-year college. WestConn and UConn are perennial favorites among transfer destinations for NVCC’s Danbury students.
Credit courses offered at the Danbury Center include liberal arts courses in English, mathematics, the humanities and social and behavioral sciences. Other subjects taught include business, communication, computers, criminal justice, early childhood education, human services and English as a Second Language (ESL). Non-credit courses are also offered for career advancement or for personal enrichment, including NVCC’s popular Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) and Patient Care Technician (PCT) training programs.
To accommodate the needs of its growing student body, the NVCC Danbury Center has increased academic advising and tutoring services. The Center recently added two more computers to its tutoring center on the third floor and a third computer to be used by students for course registration in the administrative office on the second floor.
