Your Education, Your Way

Shelton State meets you where you are then takes you where you want to be. With a broad diversity of students and possibilities, we integrate pieces and parts of a person’s experience for a one-of-a-kind fit—education customized for you.


With faculty 100% focused on teaching, the quality of instruction at Shelton State meets or exceeds that of universities for the first two years of courses. In fact, research shows that associate graduates are more likely to graduate from four-year institutions than students who begin their college experience at a four-year school.
