River Valley Community College About

River Valley Community College

Since 1968, the New Hampshire Community Technical College at Claremont, now known as River Valley Community College, has been providing quality education in an academic environment small enough to allow individualized attention. Students in the thirty-five career-oriented programs gain highly specialized skills and knowledge necessary to confidently and successfully enter the job market in a number of technical, business and health-oriented fields. In 1999, the College implemented an Associate in Arts degree that provides the first two years of a four-year baccalaureate program.

It is the student with career goals clearly in mind who tends to excel and enjoy the educational experience at Claremont. Students commute to the College from their homes or from rented housing in the area.

Located on Route 120 approximately two miles north of the Claremont business district, the campus affords students spacious and modern classroom and laboratory facilities in a quiet rural setting. The College is accessible to the physically challenged.

The College views itself as serving the needs of both the region and the state. It cooperates with local industry, business, service and health organizations to meet those needs.

Keene Academic Center

In the fall of 2004, New Hampshire Community Technical College - Claremont, in an effort to expand and address the needs of our partnering community in Keene, opened the Keene Academic Center. The Academic Center offers courses leading to completion of some programs. These courses offer increased access to post secondary education to residents of the Monadnock Region.

The Keene Academic Center not only provides local access and assistance in college admissions procedure, information regarding academic advising, support services and financial aid, but also provides a direct link to the main campus in Claremont. The Keene Academic Center also acts as a vital link to the local business community for economic development in the area. The academic center does not provide full services on site. Students may access full college services at the Claremont campus.

Classes are offered during the day, evening hours and 100% online. Students should consult program listings for additional information. The college reserves the right to cancel courses and/or move students to the main campus for program completion if enrollment is low in programs and/or courses.

The Keene Academic Center is subject to all the policies of the regional college.
