Spartanburg Community College (SCC) (Formerly Spartanburg Technical College or Spartanburg Tech), is a public, suburban, two-year comprehensive, open-admission institution of higher education serving the citizens of Spartanburg, Cherokee, and Union counties in Upstate South Carolina. The College advances economic development of the region through programs, services and partnerships that address emerging and continuing employment needs in a rapidly changing global environment. The College promotes lifelong learning and helps students reach their personal and professional goals. A name change took effect in late 2006, with the "Technical" being dropped, and is now known as Spartanburg Community College.
In summer 2009, SCC announced plans for a downtown Spartanburg presence, utilizing the historic Evans Building. This campus will offer convenient access for under-served city residents. Classes are expected to begin at the Downtown Campus in Fall 2013.
