College Profile: Southern State Community College
Located in beautiful southern Ohio, Southern State is a two-year community college that serves the diverse needs of its constituents. Established in 1975 as Southern State General and Technical College the primary academic focus was technical degrees. After changing to Southern State Community College in 1977 the curriculum expanded to meet the demands of students seeking specific career training as well as the needs of those students wishing to transfer after their first two-years of education. In addition to offering Associate degrees in both technical as well as transfer programs, the College offers a wide array of adult basic literacy courses and workforce training programs.
Southern State was one of the first community colleges in the state to develop an accredited transfer program, and many of our students earn the first two years of a bachelor’s degree and transfer to four-year colleges and universities in Ohio and beyond. Along with the transfer program, SSCC offers associate degrees in five different areas of study in applied business, nineteen in applied science, the Associate of Technical Studies degree, and seven certificate programs - Practical Nursing, Office Services, Data-Information Processing, Horticulture, Medical Transcription, Phlebotomy, and Pharmacy Technician.
Southern State Community College serves a five-county area including Adams, Brown, Clinton, Highland, and Fayette Counties. With either a campus or training facility in all of the counties, the College provides full access to students in the vast, yet rural service area. Numerous people use the space throughout the year not only for educational instruction but also for meetings, seminars, community events, concerts, etc.
Priding itself on offering affordable, accessible, and high quality education, Southern State continues to reach more and more people throughout southern Ohio and beyond.
