About Our College
In the 1960s, community leaders in Swainsboro and Emanuel County petitioned the state legislature to establish a community college in the area. In 1969, the Georgia Board of Regents underwent a study to determine the need for additional community colleges in the state. A year later, the Swainsboro–Emanuel County area was approved as a prospective site with the stipulation that the county provide land and funding to build the initial physical plant.
