Stanly Community College, located in Albemarle, North Carolina, was established in 1971 through a temporary location on the Albemarle High School Campus. The school originally focused primarily on career development, and as a result saw rapid increase in enrollment within only five months of operation. This increase resulted in the establishment of a permanent campus, after which the college grew in scope, size, and offerings. The school is part of the North Carolina Community College System which governs and operates all 58 community colleges in the state.
As a comprehensive community college, SCC offers a variety of programs geared at workforce development or academic transfer. Workforce development is achieved through programs that provide education and training in a variety of high demand fields in order for the student to enter given field or industry as a professional upon completion. Such programs take between one and two years to complete, resulting in a certificate or associate's degree. Academic transfer is accomplished by taking on a curriculum that mirrors the first two years of a four year education, after which the student will apply for transfer to a college or university to complete the final two years and earn a bachelor's degree.
Programs offered include:
