Welcome and congratulations!

You have taken a life-changing step in selecting Community Colleges of Spokane – and one of our outstanding institutions: Spokane Community College, Spokane Falls Community College or our campus centers throughout our six-county region (in Colville, Inchelium, Newport, Pullman, Republic and Spokane).

This catalog reflects the values that we, CCS faculty, staff and administration strive to share with students each day. It is our mission to develop, unlock and celebrate each student’s potential. You will find in our classes on campus or online our commitment to your success and to providing you high-quality learning experiences along with support services to help you reach your educational and career goals. The catalog is a resource for knowing who to contact when you need help, information and academic or student support.

Your decision to gain a degree or certificate from our colleges will prepare you for the new world of work, for a clear pathway to careers of your choice, for additional education in your field of interest and for the experience to learn and grow and the opportunity to contribute to your family, our community and our country. We also encourage you to get involved in the numerous clubs, activities, sports, service learning projects and student government.

As you know, the global pandemic COVID19 has brought about many changes to everyday life here in the Inland Northwest and all around the country. Changes have impacted schools, colleges, the workplace, and the community at large. Please know we are dedicated to keeping you safe and healthy and will implement social-distancing guidelines in campus-based classes recommended by national and regional health experts, and we have extensive and very high quality online learning and student services support.

We are very excited about your decision to be our student, and we are here to support your success!
