Serving over 12,000 students, the district has two campuses in Redding, a campus in Tehama, Trinity, and one in the Intermountain area, in addition to its many online courses and programs. Shasta College offers certificates, associate degrees, transfer options, and an entirely online Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management. Shasta College has been honored to receive numerous grants for innovative programs that have led to the continued success of the students and communities served.

Shasta College was founded in 1948 as part of the Shasta Union High School District and serves all people in Shasta, Tehama, and Trinity Counties, including parts of Lassen, Modoc, and Humboldt Counties. Shasta College’s 337-acre campus is home to a working farm, a state-of-the-art Computer Information Systems building, an Early Childhood Education child care center and instructional facility, and a newly built Veterans Support and Success Center. The campus is also home to a Regional Public Safety Training Center with multiple burn structures, a repelling tower, and classrooms used by the Shasta College Fire Academy and many departments throughout the north state. The college takes its energy footprint seriously and has two solar arrays that meet up to 80% of the college’s yearly energy needs. The 44,000-square-foot Health Sciences and University Center in downtown Redding house the college’s Dental Hygiene and Nursing programs. Next door to the Health Sciences Center is our newly constructed Community Leadership Center consisting of five stories of regionally focused programs and services dedicated to creating, sustaining, and enhancing the communities of the north state. The Tehama campus serves the communities of Red Bluff and Corning with a new 8,900 ft Student Services building which serves as a one-stop shop for students’ needs along with a veteran’s support center and counseling offices. 

Shasta College is part of the California Community College system, the world’s most extensive higher education system, with 116 colleges organized into 72 districts. Shasta College offers a wide range of programs and services, including counseling, tutoring, financial aid, performing arts and athletic events, student activities, veteran services, cultural events, lecture series, workshops, and art exhibits.

In January 2018, The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges reaffirmed Shasta College’s seven-year accreditation, the longest period allowed by the Commission for colleges to maintain accredited status. Shasta College was especially proud of the 16 commendations received from the visiting team of peer evaluators and especially the recognition of the collegial and inclusive environment of the college.
