Thank You For Your Service!

Welcome to Cape Cod Community College.  It is our honor to have you here and to be of service to you as you pursue your education.  Regardless of whether you are a new student, or returning student, or you are transferring to our campus from another institution, we are here to help you take advantage of the numerous educational opportunities through the GI Bill® and other programs, and to assist with a variety of resources you need to make the most out of your time at 4Cs.

4Cs Veterans Center

Cape Cod Community College Military and Veteran Students are encouraged to take advantage of the newly renovated 4Cs Veterans Center. Located on the second floor of the Wilkens Library, the Veterans Center offers a relaxing environment for veterans to study, network, or grab a cup of coffee in between classes.
