Shasta College was founded in 1948 as part of the Shasta Union High School District. After opening its doors on Eureka Way in the fall of 1950 with 256 day students, Shasta College grew so rapidly that, in 1964, voters approved a bond issue for construction of a 337-acre campus at the main campus location. Shasta College extends its educational, cultural, and recreational facilities and services to all people in Shasta, Tehama, and Trinity Counties, including parts of Lassen, Modoc, and Humboldt Counties, an area that is more than 10,000 square miles.
Shasta College offers programs for certificates and associate's degrees, many of which are available in online formats.
