Warren County Community College was established in July 1981 by the New Jersey Commission on Higher Education and the Warren County Board of Chosen Freeholders. In its earliest years, WCCC operated as a “College without Walls” and held classes in local high schools. In 1987, the New Jersey State Board of Higher Education provided WCCC with degree-granting authority and a temporary facility. In 1988, WCCC graduated its first class.
In 1992, WCCC was accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. In January 1996, the College moved into its current building on Route 57 in Washington Township. In 1997, a four-classroom addition was completed. The College was awarded a ten-year re-accreditation in 2008. A new addition was completed in January 2009. The college opened a second campus in Phillipsburg, NJ in September 2011.
Warren County Community College currently offers degree programs and certificate programs. The college serves approximately 1,800 full-time and part-time students, in addition to students in non-credit programs and courses. Dr. William Austin has served as the college president since 2003.
Among their distinguished faculty, New Jersey Poet BJ Ward serves as an associate professor in their Creative Writing program.
All new students meet individually with advisors to select courses based on their desired major and career goals.
