Whether you are a new high school graduate or beginning a degree later in life or attending to gain certifications or additional credentials, you have a place here at Shawnee.
As a high school student, I enrolled in Shawnee’s dual enrollment program to earn a year of college credits. We continue that tradition of offering accessible courses at all levels to our community members. With convenient classes offered during the day or evening on our main campus, extension sites, and online, we are here to meet you where you are and take you where you aspire to be.
Our faculty and staff are fully committed to your success. We have renowned faculty who provide dynamic and innovative curriculum that addresses changing demands in industry. Upon completion of your degree or certification program, you will leave Shawnee well prepared for the workforce or for transfer to a four-year college. Many of our courses are fully transferable to a four-year college or university and our counselors will help you with your transfer as you approach completion of your program.
Our staff are committed to ensuring that you are supported during your time at Shawnee. Staff members believe in your dreams and work earnestly to provide resources and on time feedback on queries to assist you from the moment you decide to enroll to program completion. Reach out and connect with us; we understand that you may need additional support along the way.
Take the first step to realizing your goals by enrolling at Shawnee. When you join our community of life-long learners, you will develop lasting friendships with peers and strong ties with faculty and staff. All of us at Shawnee Community College are here to help you prepare for the next steps in your academic and professional career. Please spend some time getting to know our community. Call or come in to the main campus near Ullin or any of our extension centers located in Anna, Cairo, and Metropolis, Illinois.
