Our Somerset County Campus offers you the chance to learn in a unique environment where you'll know all of your professors, administrators, and staff on a first name basis. It is truly a place where the "personal touch" exists in the academic world.
In 1989, Allegany College of Maryland began offering associate degree and certificate programs during evening only classes at Somerset Area High School. But we soon realized that the local community needed a community college to provide both day and evening classes. Day classes began in 1994 and, in 1999, the Somerset County Campus Foundation purchased the 27,000 square-foot facility in Somerset. This facility, known as Founder's Hall, houses both the Somerset County Library and our college; it includes classrooms, computer labs, distance learning facilities, a student lounge, faculty offices, an allied health laboratory, and student and administrative areas. In 2001, land was purchased to build a new two-story building now known as Partner's Hall. It houses classrooms, science labs, computer labs, and an additional nursing classroom/lab. Surrounding Partner's Hall is Renna's Mile, a one mile walking track, which is open to the community.
The Somerset County Campus offers programs of study in Applied Technical Studies, Business, Criminal Justice, Cybersecurity, General Studies, Hospitality Management -- Hotel and Restaurant Management option, Nursing, and Psychology. In addition, courses to prepare for entrance into allied health programs, and general education and career program courses designed for transfer are available. Our early college program provides high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to take college credit courses onsite or within their Somerset County high school.
From career training programs to transfer credit courses, the Somerset County Campus can help you discover your future. For more information about the Somerset County Campus or to schedule a tour, please call 814-445-9848, ext. 6100.
