St. Cloud Technical & Community College (SCTCC) is a regional treasure located in the heart of Central Minnesota. Founded in 1948 as the second technical college in the state, SCTCC has committed to meeting the needs of our community through its 90+ programs of study that closely match the types of jobs available in the area.
More than 70% of our students come from the surrounding six counties and choose employment close to home after graduation in healthcare, business management, computer technology, manufacturing, construction, transportation, and more.
While SCTCC has offered liberal arts and sciences courses for years, in 2010 the College became a comprehensive technical and community college offering the Associate in Arts degree in addition to technical programs.
Students who seek continuing study or employment outside of Central Minnesota find that their education is portable, especially when students choose further education at any one of Minnesota’s state universities.
SCTCC is located in the heart of Central Minnesota, just one block from the banks of the Mississippi River and a short drive to many scenic roadways through the farmland and rolling, wooded hills of our region.
Our St. Cloud community is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in Minnesota, featuring the best in education, healthcare, business services, cultural and recreational activities as well as public transportation. We are a one-hour drive to the Twin Cities metro area as well as the many out-state lakes and parks that are distinct Minnesota icons.
Approximately 6,000 students are enrolled in credit-based classes with an equal number of men and women. The college has doubled in size the last 10 years and continues to be one of the fastest growing colleges in the Minnesota State colleges and universities system.
