    Shawnee Community College's mission is to serve the needs of the students and our diverse community by providing quality higher education, community education, training, and services that are accessible, affordable, and promote life-long learning.

    The Shawnee Community College Main Campus is located on 152 acres of rolling hills and woods just a few miles north of the Ohio river and near the scenic Cache River Wetlands. One of most beautiful community college campuses in Illinois, Shawnee consists of the original "Rustic campus" that now houses many area agencies, and the main campus buildings, which cover 140,000 square feet. The main campus also contains athletic fields, a lake, nature trails, and agriculture test plots. In addition to the main campus, extension centers are located in Anna, Metropolis, and Cairo, Illinois. The area is very rural in nature and is sparsely populated. Our classes are convenient - offered during the day or evening - and often in your hometown. We are one of the first colleges to offer classes on the Internet. You can take over 50 courses from the comfort of home. Most importantly, our staff and faculty care about your success. Our students rave about the personal attention our instructors and support staff give to make attending college a positive experience. In-district residents pay $2,850 in tuition and fees per academic year.
