OC Shelton is a supportive learning community serving Mason County for over 40 years. The 27-acre campus has modern, high-tech facilities, including multi-use classrooms, computer labs, meeting rooms, a science lab, bookstore, library, video teleconferencing and wireless Internet access.
Students may earn an associate degree or certificate. The Associate in Arts (AA) degree provides transfer opportunities as it satisfies the first two years of college study at many colleges and universities. The Associate in Technical Arts degree (ATA) is designed to provide entry into a technical or semiprofessional occupation or additional training for those already working in a field but desiring advancement.
OC Shelton offers General Education Development (GED) preparation classes and testing, adult high school completion, and classes for English Speakers of Other Languages. Running Start (for eligible high school juniors and seniors) is available through the cooperative efforts of local high schools, as are Tech Prep credits for Mason County high school students. In addition, a non-credit continuing education program offers community members opportunities for personal and professional enrichment.
OC Shelton students also have access to a variety of student services such as advising, registration, placement testing, transcript evaluation, tutorial services, and a bookstore. Support services are available for students with special needs, along with career development assistance and online internship and career placement.
