South Central College (SCC) is a two-year comprehensive community and technical college located in southern Minnesota (campuses in Faribault and North Mankato).
Formerly South Central Technical College, the college revised its mission from a technical college to that of a broader, comprehensive community college in 2005, receiving approval from the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) Board of Trustees on March 16, 2005. Over 50 programs are offered as certificates, diplomas, Associate of Applied Science (AAS), or Associate of Science (AS) degrees. With the mission change, SCC offers an Associate of Arts (AA) degree that students use as the first two years of their four-year education.
South Central College has a growing online presence and offers fully accredited courses/majors that are taught by the college’s qualified faculty. South Central College emphasizes globalization and integrates an international perspective into the curriculum.
South Central College enjoys established partnerships with regional businesses and industries and delivers customized education through its Center for Business and Industry.
