Spartanburg Community College

The Spartanburg County Technical Education Center first opened in the Fall of 1963. During its first decade, the school was accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges (SACS) and in 1969 a second classroom building was constructed. In 1974, in recognition of the school's expanding academic curriculum, the name was changed to Spartanburg Technical College. As the college continued to grow, satellite locations were opened to accommodate students in the three-county service area. In 2006, the college changed its name to Spartanburg Community College, becoming the first community college in South Carolina. Today the college operates a 104-acre central campus that is a recognized arboretum with nine academic and physical plant facilities, three campuses in the towns of Duncan, Gaffney and Union and soon a downtown campus with one academic facility.
