About Us

Calhoun Community College exemplifies the two-year college mission of commitment to excellence in teaching and service and is the region's leader in education and workforce development.

The largest of the two-year institutions comprising The Alabama Community College System, Calhoun is an open-admission, community-based, state-supported, coeducational, comprehensive community college dedicated to providing affordable, high-quality and accessible education to individuals in its four-county service area.

Offering 49 associate degree programs and 52 career/certificate programs, Calhoun serves just over 12,300 students at its 110-acre Decatur campus; its Huntsville/Cummings Research Park site; and at the Limestone Correctional Facility (click here to see campus maps). The college's faculty and staff are well qualified and remain current in their areas of expertise. Over 80 percent of the full-time faculty possess at least a master's degree, and approximately 15 percent hold the doctorate.

For over 62 years, Calhoun has been an active member of North Alabama. Graduates of the college permeate the community, and many of them have gone on to complete baccalaureate degrees at other institutions in the area, or have entered the work force after successfully completing programs of study and training.

Calhoun successfully continues to meet the educational and training demands of a unique and highly diverse population. The college also is committed to providing training and education for area business and industry through our Calhoun Workforce Solutions department.

As an institution on the cutting edge of providing excellence in teaching and service, Calhoun has enjoyed local, state, regional, and national distinction. Since 1989, the college has experienced national attention through having seven of its students named as the top community college student in the nation.
