Located in Redding, California, Shasta College sits on a 337-acre campus in the midst of the California country on land that used to be inhabited by Native Americans known as the Wintu Indians. Today, the campus is home to more than 10,000 students that pursue studies in the more than one hundred programs (between certificates and associate degrees) that Shasta College offers in summer, spring, and fall. Excellence is always the ultimate objective, and so the college is continuously working to achieve the highest standards of quality and excellence for all programs in its eight divisions, which include health sciences, economics, and business.
These divisions have various accreditations, both at the state and the federal levels; Shasta strives to maintain its accreditations so that its students can continue to receive the best education they can aspire to. The most notable accreditations include those given by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and by the American Dental Association.
Shasta College is continuously investing in its infrastructure. New buildings and facilities, such as the Health Sciences and University Center, which was opened in 2007, possess the latest technology (including environment-friendly technologies) so that students always have the best resources and tools available while they study.
