WSCC is Committed to Student Success

Over 50 Years of Excellence

Washington State Community College (WSCC) is a two-year college in the Mid-Ohio Valley offering more than 40 certificate and associate degree programs.  We opened our doors in 1971 and, in fact, our first graduating class was actually a rather small group of only four graduates. However, we have grown since then and today we boast more than 12,000 alumni. Even so, one constant has remained during our more than 50 years in education — our commitment to fuel the community’s future. We do this through education, workforce development, cultural enrichment, and community service.

Our faculty and staff take pride in maintaining a dynamic learning environment. With small class sizes, we foster a culture of hard work, dedication, and encouragement to help you reach your full potential. And whether you prefer face-to-face, online, blended (both online and in the classroom), day or evening classes, WSCC is ready to help you discover what you’re capable of accomplishing.

Excellence is our Guide

Above all, our focus is steadfastly on student success, as a result, our progress and achievements in this arena have been rewarded with state and national recognition. These accolades are the result of specific initiatives we set in motion that provide opportunities for us to help you successfully complete your courses and ultimately attain your degree.
