Welcome to Chesapeake College!  

Our faculty, staff and college leadership work together as a community to create a dynamic learning environment for our students. Each of us is committed to your success.

Your success–whether it is transfer to a four-year university or entry into the workforce–is our mission. If you have not yet decided on a course of study, explore our Pathways to find the major that suits your talents and goals.

You will learn from talented faculty supported by dedicated staff.  You will also build connections with classmates that will last a lifetime. Whether you are with us short-term or for multiple years, you will acquire the tools that provide for your success.  If you take classes virtually or in person, you will learn in a supportive environment designed for your academic and personal growth.

Your Chesapeake experience will be richer if you are an active member of our campus community. Make the most of your time at Chesapeake by becoming involved in student government, athletics, performing arts, honor societies, or a campus club.

Thank you for beginning the next steps in your personal journey with Chesapeake College. Welcome to our community. I wish you the best of luck!


Dr. Cliff Coppersmith
