Greetings From

Keith M. Norton

Acting Executive Director 


Welcome to the Office of Higher Education!


Created in July 2011 (CGS Sec. 10a-1d), our Office provides a wealth of services to students, educators and institutions of higher education – both postsecondary career schools and colleges. Our goals include providing programs and opportunities to students of all ages who wish to further their education, and ensuring that such programs consistently maintain the high academic standards for which Connecticut is known.


This website explains the many functions of our Office, from helping students learn about ways to pay of college to assuring that private colleges and career schools meet rigorous state quality standards. It also contains information on Connecticut’s highly successful Alternate Route to Teacher Certification program, as well as state financial aid and AmeriCorps programs, which are some of the more popular programs we administer.  The goal of all of our work is to promote access to outstanding and relevant learning experiences, and we encourage you to follow the links through our website to learn more about them.


We welcome your comments, and invite you to contact our Office to learn more about our work, and the many ways we can serve you!


With best wishes on your educational endeavors,


Keith M. Norton

Acting Executive Director
