2014-2015 College Catalog

“Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.”
— Abigail Adams

W. Stephen Pannill, Ed.D. President

More than chance has caused you to browse our College catalog. Perhaps it is: 1) word of our regionally strong programs in a number of rewarding career fields, 2) our faculty’s "top performer" ranking nationally for challenging and supporting students, 3) convenient locations in North East and at our Elkton Station, 4) alliances and agreements with so many baccalaureate level institutions in the region that make it clear sailing to transfer on your terms, 5) comparatively affordable tuition, or 6) all of the above.

Because we emphasize a rigorous, well-rounded education, Cecil students are well prepared for "the next level" and highly prized by employers and officials at other colleges. They know you will be able to calculate, communicate, think on your feet, work in teams, and have the skills to be a full participant in the 21st century.

We now support university partners to deliver the latter portion of a bachelor's degree right on one of our campuses.  Salisbury University and Wilmington University are expected to be joined by two others soon.

This College is moving with ardor and diligence to a higher level of service for students individually and to the region in general. We are in a stronger and stronger position to be part of your program to reach your learning goals. We invite you to be a Cecil College Student.
