Welcome from the President

Banner of President Dr. Kevin Boys

Thank you for visiting the Southern State Community College website. Our Vision for the college is quite simple—we want Southern State to be YOUR first-choice college.

Whether you are graduating from one of our area’s high schools, making the choice to return to college for better job prospects or deciding to finish something you started long ago, we recognize that you have many choices about where to pursue your college education. We are convinced that Southern State can be an affordable, accessible and high quality choice to pursue a two-year technical degree that can take you directly to a job, or a two-year associate degree that you can transfer to another college of your choice to complete your bachelor’s degree. Whatever your circumstances, Southern State has a long history of introducing students just like you to a college education and seeing changed lives at the other end!

Perhaps you are not a student at all but a person looking for Employment Opportunities at Southern State, a business owner looking for Customized Training or a community member looking for some cultural events in the community. You will be glad to know that Southern State strives to be YOUR first-choice college in those areas as well.

We hope you find our website easy to navigate and that you are able to locate just about anything you want to know about our college community. You will also find links to Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. In fact, I invite you to follow me on Twitter @SSCCPresident.

Although the website is an important and convenient way to provide information and services, there are people behind the pages who make Southern State a great place to learn and work. Call us toll-free at 800.628.7722 or stop by for a visit at one of our four convenient Campus Locations. And please stop me and introduce yourself when you see me in your community or on one of the campuses. I would love to hear about your experiences at Southern State!

I wish you the very best as you pursue your educational and employment goals.
