I’m excited you are thinking about improving your future and letting Somerset Community College be part of your plans!

The coronavirus made a huge impact on all of us and since March of 2020 we have made many adjustments to our lives. Now that things have improved, the opportunity to build your future career is in front of you and we can help make that happen. SCC exists for the people and communities in South Central and Eastern Kentucky. We work closely with businesses and industries to develop and prepare the people they need from air conditioning to welding, and from a GED to an associate degree in arts or science. We also have the University Center of Southern Kentucky with offices on our Somerset and Laurel Campuses to help you get to the next level at one of Kentucky’s great universities. Once our graduates have finished, many come back to get additional education and training to support them in their profession. Don’t let costs deter you, we have many students who are able to complete their course tuition free after applying the many scholarships and state funding options to their program. Just call us for more information.

As one of the 16 colleges in the Kentucky Community and Technical College System, we work with local, state, and federal offices, universities, and regional businesses to improve the lives of our students and their families. SCC will be here to support you when you start, as you learn, and after you graduate.  

So, come join SCC and let us be the starting point for your future!
