For more than 35 years, St. Charles Community College has served its community by focusing on academic excellence, student success, and workforce development.

We celebrate diversity, equity and inclusion – where every faculty member, employee and student feels embraced and heard. Each year, SCC serves more than 10,000 students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution, obtain a work-ready degree or certificate, or broaden their horizons through education.
SCC boasts two beautiful campuses. Our 12-building main campus sits in the heart of Cottleville. With new on-campus housing, a remodeled Student Center and scenic trails and lakes, students get a real college experience on campus. Our second campus located in Dardenne Prairie features the Center for Healthy Living, a state-of-the-art building that houses our Allied Health and Nursing Programs. The campus is also home to the new Culinary and Agricultural Center that includes a bakery, test kitchen, commercial kitchen, and brewing lab, as well as beehives and crops.
