NWCCD includes Sheridan College, Gillette College, and Sheridan College in Johnson County. Ranked 5th Best Community College in the Nation in 2020 (WalletHub), our world-class facilities and residence halls are similar to a four-year university, but we’re small enough that everyone knows you by name. Located in beautiful northeast Wyoming, our campuses are close to the Bighorn Mountains, the Black Hills of South Dakota, Yellowstone National Park, and much more! Our strong partnerships with local industry and locations in some of Wyoming’s most thriving towns mean our students’ opportunities are endless. Choose from 50+ affordable, transferrable degree and certificate programs to launch the career you’re meant to have.
