Welcome to Germanna Community College!

We love our students! We believe in, encourage, and support them every step of the way toward their careers and dreams.  We help them pay for college in a variety of ways that minimize–and sometimes eliminate–costs.

We help students get-on-the job experience in their fields through our new GermannaWorks program.  Our Career & Transfer Center helps make the process of transferring to a four-year college easier.

We offer over 30 programs in transfer and career and technical areas of study online and at our Fredericksburg Area Campus in Spotsylvania, Locust Grove Campus in Orange, Barbara J. Fried Center in Stafford, Culpeper Daniel Technology Center and at Fredericksburg’s Central Park.  A new, expanded center in Stafford is expected to open in North Stafford in May 2024 with emphasis on nursing and health care and on cybersecurity.

Here you will be able to choose the learning experience that suits you best. We offer virtual, in-person and hybrid education to go to school on your schedule. With free, 24-7, virtual mental health care, tutoring, food pantries and other supports you can continue on to your degree even if there are bumps in the road.

We invite you to check out:

Most importantly, our first-rate faculty and staff care deeply about our students as human beings. Our small, in-person or remote class sizes allow our expert faculty to provide the personal attention you need. We hope you will take advantage of our outstanding teaching, ACE Tutoring Center, counselors, and advisors as well as the Veterans’ Center.  

The Aspen Institute has recognized Germanna twice as one of the top 150 community colleges in the country.  Since Germanna opened its doors in 1970, we have worked to provide superior education, training and services to the citizens of Caroline, Culpeper, King George, Madison, Orange, Spotsylvania and Stafford Counties, the City of Fredericksburg and online everywhere. With 13,000 students a year, we remain committed to assisting each student, one at a time, providing unique and personal learning, care and support.

Thank you for trusting us to help you to live your own success story.


Dr. Janet Gullickson, President
