About Our College
In 1938, El Reno Junior College, was established by an act of the El Reno Board of Education fostered by a petition signed by El Reno High School graduates' parents. In 1938 the State Junior College Committee, University of Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State University accredited the college for one year of higher education and in 1939 it received accreditation as a two-year institution. Fifty-four students enrolled in the college's first year, and in 1940, the first graduating class consisted of eight students. In 1974, the college became a full member of the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education. On September 1, 1991, the name was officially changed to Redlands Community College.
