Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (abbreviated SKYCTC; formerly Bowling Green Technical College), located in Bowling Green, in the U.S. state of Kentucky, is one of 16 two-year, open-admissions colleges of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS). The college is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).[1]

History[edit]

Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College was established as Western Trade School in 1939 and was operated by Western Kentucky State Teachers College (later Western Kentucky University (WKY).) In 1962, the school became independent of WKU, and underwent two name changes before joining KCTCS in 1997 and becoming Bowling Green Technical College.[2] On December 7, 2012, the KCTCS Board of Regents approved a request to change the name to Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College, recognizing the fact that SACS had designated it as a comprehensive community college and granted approval for it to award the Associate in Arts and Associate in Science degrees.
