Concurrent Enrollment Program

The CCC nursing program is partnered with Northern Arizona University (NAU) and Grand Canyon University (GCU) to provide a Concurrent Education Program (CEP). The CEP program provides a student the choice to apply to NAU or GCU to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. The student would take online courses through either NAU or GCU while taking the core nursing classes in person at CCC. This allows a student to graduate in two years and earn both an Associate degree and Bachelor degree in Nursing. For more information, please contact Katherine Costa, Director of Nursing/Allied Health and/or Advising.

Coconino Community College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and as a member of the North Central Association; all classes taken at CCC are transferable to other public and private educational institutions in Arizona.
