Southern State Community College was chartered in February 1975 as Southern State General and Technical College to serve Adams, Brown, Clinton, Fayette and Highland Counties. In April of 1975, the University of Cincinnati’s Board of Trustees indicated its support of the college district which encompassed UC’s Tri-County Academic Center at Macon. In 1977, the name of the college was officially changed to Southern State Community College. SSCC operates with the mission to "provide accessible, affordable and high quality education to people in southern Ohio."
SSCC provides transfer and technical programs leading to associate's degrees and certificates. Several online degree programs are available, especially for students wanting to transfer to a four-year institution.
