What we offer
Centralia College helps you pursue goals that lead to successful careers at regional, national, and international levels. Our graduates can transfer to any four-year college in the state or compete for jobs after completing one of our workforce programs. And we now offer a bachelor's degree program, the Bachelor of Applied Science in Management.
Growth and academic excellence...
The college is growing in size and reputation, adding new buildings, remodeling others, and plugging in new programs to adjust to changing job markets. Our transfer degree programs—for those planning to transfer to a four-year college—remain one of the strengths of the college. With a full lineup of activities: live stage theatrical productions by renowned playwrights, intercollegiate athletics, and a host of student clubs and organizations, we've got something to engage you in and out of the classroom. We offer personable student services, a growing international student body, and an entertaining and informative run of student events. There's a lot going on, yet we maintain our traditional small-town appeal, intimate learning environment, quality faculty, and low tuition.
Quality classes, experienced instructors...
In addition to our face-to-face degree and certificate programs, you can earn your associate degree completely online. Instructors who not only have real-world experience in their field but also maintain solid connections with industry employers can help you land a job.
