Southwestern Community College again ranks in the TOP 10 in the U.S. of the America's 50 best community colleges according to Wahington Monthly.

Southwestern Community CollegeIt is pretty amazing that our college ranks in the Top 10 considering there are over 1,000 community colleges in the country.  Back in 2007 we ranked 4th in the Nation and we came in nith in 2010.  SCC is one of only 2 colleges that ranked in the Top 10 in both 2007 and 2010. 

Ratings are based greatly on the Community College Survey of Student engagement, a published nationwide survey.

Institutional Profile: Southwestern Community College was established in Sylva, NC on Dec. 1, 1964 as the Jackson County Industrial Education Center, a satellite unit of Asheville-Buncombe Technical Institute. Since achieving independent status in the fall of 1967, the College (then known as Southwestern Technical Institute) has greatly expanded its educational and training services to the residents of Jackson, Macon and Swain counties.           

Located on a 57-acre tract of land on North Carolina Highway 116 between Webster and Sylva, the Southwestern Community College Jackson Campus consists of seven
buildings, totaling 194,728 square feet, including a Library. Centrally located to serve southwestern North Carolina, the college is 50 miles southwest of Asheville, NC, and 90 miles southeast of Knoxville, TN.   

SCC's Cecil Groves Building in Macon CountyNew in 2007 the Macon County, NC Campus is on a 20-acre site on Siler Farm Road just south of Franklin, NC. This high-tech, state of the art campus is the beginning of a resource-rich campus, offering technology enhanced learning with computer laboratories, virtual and interactive classrooms, and a wireless environment. Students have borrower privileges at SCC Library on Jackson Campus and the adjacent New in 2007, Macon County Public Library, in Franklin, NC and access to major research institutions.

Currently, including all diploma, certificate and associate's degree curricula as well as concentrations, instruction is provided in more than 60 programs. In addition to the Jackson Campus, the College opened a new Macon Campus in 2007 and also operates four centers located in Bryson City, Cherokee, Franklin and Cashiers. More than 2,600 students enroll annually in credit courses, and more than 5,500 (unduplicated) participate in a wide variety of courses, workshops and seminars offered through Continuing Education.
