Greetings from the President of SCC



Dr. Peggy Bradford, SCC President pictureAs a proud alumna of Shawnee Community College, I am especially delighted to welcome you to the college. Here at Shawnee, we are focused on your success. Your academic journey is important to us and we are here to serve and support you as you strive to achieve your goals. We are your partners. Your success is our success.

The Shawnee community welcomes all students to an inclusive environment focused on academic excellence. As a high school student, I entered Shawnee’s dual enrollment program to earn a year of college credits. Whether you are a recent high school graduate, beginning a degree later in life, or attending to gain certifications or additional credentials, you have a place here at Shawnee.

We honor the College’s tradition of offering accessible courses to our community members. We offer one of the most affordable tuition rates in Illinois and the Midwest. With day and evening classes offered conveniently on our main campus, extension sites, and online, we are here to meet you where you are and take you where you aspire to go.

Our faculty and staff are fully committed to your success. We have renowned faculty who provide a dynamic and innovative curriculum that addresses the changing demands of the workforce. Upon completing your degree or certification program, you will be well-prepared for the workforce, or for a Bachelor’s program at a senior college or university. Many of our courses are fully transferable and our counselors will help you with the transfer process as you approach graduation.

Staff members believe in your dreams and work earnestly to support you during your time at Shawnee. We provide resources and prompt feedback to assist you from the moment of enrollment to program completion, understanding that you may need additional assistance along the way. Reach out and connect with us! We invite you to spend some time getting to know our community. Call or come in to the main campus near Ullin, or any of our extension centers in Anna, Cairo, and Metropolis, Illinois.

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 in your academic and professional career.

I am a testament to what a Shawnee degree can do for you. I look forward to seeing you on campus and to hearing about your progress as you work to fulfill your dreams. I did it and so can you.

Peggy F. J. Bradford, J.D., Ed.D.
