Fort Peck Community College (FPCC) is a tribally controlled community college chartered by the Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes. Located in the Northeast corner of Montana on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, Fort Peck Community College offers associate degrees and certificates in 38 fields of study and has agreements with four-year degree granting institutions that allow students to earn bachelor degrees in elementary education, business education, and applied management.
Fort Peck Community College believes that the opportunity for higher education must be provided on the reservation. Since many of the people choose not to leave their homeland, it is necessary that education be brought to them. Fort Peck Community College is committed to preserving Indian culture, history, and beliefs, and to perpetuating them among the Indian people of all ages. Fort Peck Community College promotes self-awareness through education necessary to build a career, a lifestyle, and to achieve a true sense of self-pride. Although FPCC does not deny anyone the opportunity for higher education, the institution’s primary purpose is to serve the American Indian population of the Fort Peck Reservation.
With a variety of academic and vocational offerings, FPCC is designed to improve the employability and efficiency of current and prospective students. These academic programs include: Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Associate of Applied Science, and several Certificate programs. To ensure quality and academic integrity, the College maintains full accreditation by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
