About Asnuntuck Community College

Asnuntuck Community College is located in Enfield, Connecticut, just off Interstate 91, approximately halfway between the metropolitan areas of Springfield, Massachusetts, to the north and Hartford, Connecticut, to the south.  Asnuntuck serves the north-central Connecticut communities of East Granby, East Windsor, Ellington, Enfield, Somers, Stafford Springs, Suffield, and Windsor Locks, and also draws students from south-central Massachusetts and the greater Harford area.

The mission of Asnuntuck Community College is to offer quality education in an accessible, affordable, and nurturing environment.  The College fulfills its mission by:  offering associate degree and certificate programs for transfer opportunities, career preparation and enhancement, and lifelong learning; providing individualized support services to develop critical thinking skills, strengthen self-confidence, and foster personal growth; and supporting community and workforce development with business, industry, and community partnerships.

Campus information

The College's counseling staff offers personal assis- tance with those concerns that may affect a student’s ability to find academic success. Transfer, adjustment, and career counseling as well as academic advising

are available to students. It is our goal to offer referral resources and other supportive services, so that greater academic success may be realized.

Asnuntuck Community College is committed to pro- viding an equal educational opportunity and full participation for qualified students with disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The College strives to provide equality of ac- cess through academic adjustments, auxiliary aids and services determined to be appropriate to address those functional limitations of the disability which adversely affect educational opportunity.

The Board of Regents for Higher Education and all of the colleges under its jurisdiction are committed to the goal of achieving equal educational opportunity and full participation for people with disabilities in the com- munity colleges. To that end, this statement of policy
is put forth to reaffirm our commitment to ensure that no qualified person be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity on a com- munity college campus.

The Board recognizes that a physical or functional impairment is a disability only to the extent that it may form a barrier that prevents full participation in valued experience, activity, or role. Higher education is there- fore especially important to people with disabilities, since it aims to increase every student’s access to val- ued experience, activities, and roles. Improving access for students and employees means removing existing barriers that are physical, programmatic, and attitudi- nal; it also means taking care not to erect new barriers along the way.

The efforts of the community colleges to accommodate people with disabilities should be measured against the goals of full participation and integration. Services and programs best promote full participation and integra- tion of people with disabilities when they complement and support, but do not duplicate, the regular services and programs of the College. 

This statement is intended to reaffirm the Board’s com- mitment to affirmative action and equal opportunity for all people and in no way to replace the Equal Opportu- nity Policy Statement.

We welcome students with disabilities and seek to pro- vide opportunities for a positive college experience. Notification of a disability, with supporting documenta- tion, should be submitted to the Coordinator of Student Disability Services in order to determine appropriate and reasonable services, academic adjustments and implementation. Individual services are consistent with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act and are provided to each eligible student. 

Veterans and Connecticut National Guard members who are eligible for State of Connecticut and/or Veter- ans Administration Education Benefits must see the Fi- nancial Aid Office each semester in order to be certified for their entitlement. 

The Information Center provides photo ID services for the College during its regularly scheduled hours. Stu- dents are required to obtain their ID card at the time of admission. Continuing students can obtain an ID veri- fication sticker at the Information Center. ID cards will be needed to use school computers, to obtain a copy of their schedule, and to attend activities on campus. Students are required to wear their ID cards in a visible location while on campus and present them for iden- tification when requested by a faculty/staff member or security guard.The College will provide a lanyard/clip for students to use to display their ID.

The Student Activities Club coordinates an ongoing schedule of activities for the Asnuntuck community. Committee members choose, plan and promote social activities, parties, concerts, etc.The Activities Commit- tee welcomes participation, new members, and ideas.
