Mission Statement: The mission of Southern State Community College is to provide accessible, affordable and high quality education to the residents of its service area.
Overview: Located in 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.
Priding itself on offering affordable, accessible, and high quality education, Southern State continues to reach more and more people throughout southern Ohio and beyond. With four convenient locations throughout Adams, Brown, Clinton, Highland, and Fayette counties in Ohio, the College has become a pillar of quality in the community.
