Welcome to South Puget Sound Community College (SPSCC) where our learning and working environments revolve around student completion, excellence, equity & diversity, innovation, and community in the capital city of Olympia, Washington, the gateway to the Olympic Peninsula.

SPSCC collaborates with industry leaders, educators, and our community to offer innovative, accessible, and affordable learning experiences. We employ devoted people who mirror the diversity of our community and contribute to an inclusive, welcoming environment and invest in the creativity of our staff and faculty.
