Olds College is an Alberta public post-secondary institution located in Olds, Alberta, established in 1913 as Olds Agricultural College. The college opened its first satellite campus in Calgary in 2006 in partnership with the Calgary Stampede Board.
Total student enrollment for the 2008–2009 year was 1,350.
The college is a member of theAlberta Rural Development Network.
In 1911, the Alberta provincial government established three demonstration farms near Olds, Fairview, and near the Vermilion townsite. The Olds farm later became known as Olds Agricultural College. In 1963, the name was changed to Olds Agricultural and Vocational College to reflect course offerings which were expanding beyond agriculture. In 1970, the name was simplified to Olds College. In addition, provincial administration of the college was moved from the Ministry of Agriculture to the Ministry of Advanced Education at that time.
Olds College has two campuses. The main campus, located on the eastern edge of the township of Olds, accommodates the majority of enrolled students. The campus covers over 2,000 acres (810 ha) and includes a working farm and public botanic gardens.
The Calgary campus was opened in 2006 and is located in the Bow Valley College south campus 7th Floor.
