Salish Kootenai College

Salish Kootenai College

Salish Kootenai College is a tribally controlled college chartered in 1977 by the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes. The College is located in Pablo, Montana, in the heart of the Flathead Indian Reservation in the scenic Mission Valley of northwestern Montana. Programs include Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering, Information Technology and Business Technology. Salish Kootenai College (SKC) began as a branch campus of Flathead Valley Community College (FVCC) occupying office space donated by Polson School District. Beginning in the Winter term of 1977, the Reservation Extension Center boasted 16 part-time faculty and 49 students. The early years were difficult and funding was largely by grants. In 1981, the college broke ties with FVCC and formally called itself Salish Kootenai College. SKC became accredited in 1984, the first tribal college in the Northwest to accomplish the goal.
