Spokane Tribal College (STC) is accredited under Salish Kootenai College of Pablo, Montana through the The Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). STC currently offers two-year Associates Degrees and one-year Certificates of Completion. A complete description of our degree programs can be found here.
Spokane Tribal College has been serving the Spokane Tribal community since 1995. STC's primary campus is located in Wellpinit, Washington on the Spokane Indian Reservation. Wellpinit is approximately 45 miles northwest of the city of Spokane, and is the administrative center for the Spokane Tribe.
In 2007, STC began offering courses in the city of Spokane in an effort to serve the broader Native community. The city of Spokane is home to approximately 12,000 Native Americans from more than 80 tribes. The northeastern Washington and northwestern Idaho Tribes provide strong cultural and economic influences within this region. The goal of the Spokane Tribal College is to support the social, economic, and political status of the Tribes by providing the skills and education demanded by leadership.
STC is a Tribal College. There are 37 Tribal Colleges throughout the United States (STC is a branch of Salish Kootenai College). "[Tribal Colleges have been] created in response to the higher education needs of American Indians and generally serve geographically isolated populations that have no other means of accessing education beyond the high school level. [Tribal Colleges] have become increasingly important to educational opportunity for Native American students and are unique institutions that combine personal attention with cultural relevance to encourage American Indians—especially those living on reservations—to overcome the barriers they face to higher education." —American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC)
