- WCCC is a non-profit, residential, post-secondary, associate degree granting institution supported, in part, by appropriation from the Maine State Legislature. Washington County Community College is one of seven Community Colleges that operate under the authority of the Maine Community College System. Though it is known internationally for its outstanding marine-oriented programs -- especially boatbuilding -- WCCC offers a variety of programs designed to meet the unique educational and economic needs of the future. Many programs are offered at different academic levels -- from one-year certificate options to two-year associate degree programs. You may select from our one and two-year certificate, diploma and associate degree career programs, after which you may directly enter the workforce or, if you prefer, transfer to a four-year college or university to further your education and skills. WCCC has changed and added programs over its 32 years to meet the demands of a diverse student body. Our 300-member student body, ranging in age from 18 to 68, is made up of individuals from Maine, as well as Boston, Philadelphia, and central Europe. Our students may choose to live in one of the campus apartments overlooking the St. Croix River and the Canadian border, or commute from their own housing near our Calais or Eastport campuses. Students at WCCC are also encouraged to participate in numerous student activities, including student government, intramural sports and interest clubs. In short, WCCC prepares students for employment or continued education, but along the way, the whole person is allowed to grow and flourish in an environment unlike any other in the state of Maine. Our small classes, modern facilities, hands-on approach, and commitment to excellence will provide you with an opportunity to obtain a quality education that will serve you long after you graduate.
