Edison State Community College

Now in its fifth decade of providing high-quality, affordable education, Edison Community College is committed today and, in the future, to being a valuable resource as it continues to be responsive to the needs of its students and the broader communities it serves. With so much to offer and ongoing processes that assure consistent quality, Edison State remains committed to creating a sustained, significant impact in the region.

In 1973, Edison State was chartered under provisions of the Ohio Revised Code as the first general and technical college in Ohio. With over 4,000 students enrolled today, Edison State offers more than forty associate degrees and certificates, a broad range of baccalaureate transfer programs, developmental course work, and continuing education offerings designed to result in university transfer, career advancement, and workforce development.

The main campus is located across I-75 from the historic city of Piqua, Ohio, and sits on a 131-acre rural plain among agricultural fields and neighboring educational institutions. Additional campuses are located in Eaton, Ohio, Greenville, Ohio, and Troy, Ohio, and offer a wide variety of courses and student resources.

While today’s imminent opportunities may be replaced by new and different areas of growth tomorrow, the importance of strengthening ties with regional workforce leaders is realized. Edison State has created meaningful partnerships with some of the region’s leading employers to provide students with hands-on experience and knowledge applicable to today’s workforce needs.
