School Details

In September 1962, the Olympia School District founded the current college as Olympia Vocational Technical Institute (OVTI). In 1967, the passage of the Community College Act presented a decision for OVTI: stay with the Olympia School District or join the state community college system. That choice led to the institute merging into District 12 with the long-established Centralia College. The early 1980s brought growth to the college’s mission, scope, and physical setting. It offered its first Associate of Arts degree in 1982.

Today, South Puget Sound Community College offers associate's degrees and certificates in the following areas:

  • Arts, Communication and Cultural Studies
