Welcome to Spokane Community College!

SCC has provided college transfer, career-technical and adult basic educational opportunities to hundreds of thousands of men and women in Eastern Washington since 1963. It is a college where students transform their lives and attain their dreams in an educational environment that is personalized, engaging and affordable.

Part of Community Colleges of Spokane, SCC is a comprehensive two-year college. This means we can prepare you for a high-demand job OR for the demands of a four-year college university. We can also help you find an educational pathway with a GED, English as a Second Language certificate or through other basic education programs. In 2012-13, the community colleges' Institute for Extended Learning merged with SCC, adding adult education, rural outreach and many innovative noncredit programs to the college's offerings.

At SCC, you can complete the first two years of a bachelor's degree and earn an associate of arts (AA) degree. These degrees transfer to most public and many private four-year institutions in Washington. Along the way, you'll save thousands of dollars in tuition, enjoy small classes, be inspired by our innovative instructors and benefit from our many student support services.

Career-technical programs at SCC help students prepare for high-skill and potentially high-wage occupations or transfer to university programs. These programs are developed in partnership with business and industry so classes are relevant and targeted to workforce needs and expectations. As a career-technical student, you can earn a professional certificate or associate in applied science degree.

SCC is a large, lively campus, serving approximately 9,100 full-time equivalent students. This equates to 18,420 students by headcount annually! We offer intercollegiate and intramural sports, a variety of entertaining student activities and numerous thought-provoking cultural and humanities events each quarter. We encourage each of our students to explore student government, special interest clubs and other campus outlets to grow socially as well as academically.

We are honored that you have chosen SCC as your college of choice. We are here to help – and challenge – you as you start your college education with us.
