Program cohorts may be completed in Bucyrus (Crawford Success Center) and Mansfield (main campus).

Apply now for a short term certificate. Some programs qualify for scholarship dollars.

Add a new skill by taking a certificate program in Health Sciences, Business and Engineering, or Public Service. Certificate programs allow you to complete a series of coordinated courses in a shorter period of time than an associate degree. Your new promotion or new job may be just around the corner with the new expertise you acquire.

Learn more about the happenings at the Crawford Success Center and the great value of North Central State College.

Each term the Crawford Success Center offers classes for students  interested in completing an associate degree. The course selections are tailored so you can complete general education classes before moving to NC State main campus, the Shelby Kehoe Center, or online.  We also offer a Practical Nursing Certificate program here at the CSC.

The Crawford Success Center offers state of the art technology. Students can come to the CSC and complete course work in the computer lab or in the collaborative learning area, as well as the nursing lab which opened in 2018.
