Southern State Community College
SCHOOLS / EDUCATION
Southern State Community College was chartered in February 1975 as Southern State General and Technical College to serve Adams, Brown, Clinton, Fayette and Highland Counties. In April of 1975, the University of Cincinnati’s Board of Trustees indicated its support of the college district which encompassed UC’s Tri-County Academic Center at Macon. In 1977, the name of the college was officially changed to Southern State Community College. Southern State was one of the first community colleges in Ohio to develop an accredited transfer program, and many of our students earn the first two years of a bachelor’s degree and transfer to four-year colleges and universities in Ohio and beyond. Along with the transfer program, we offer Associate Degree Programs in different areas of study in applied business, applied science, an Associate of Technical Studies degree and several Certificate Programs.
