About Our College
Prior to 1978, SKC was a branch campus of Flathead Valley Community College (FVCC). SKC is a tribal controlled college, chartered in 1977 under the sovereign governmental authority of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes. In 1981, the college formally disassociated from FVCC and became completely self-governing. The college was designated a land-grant college in 1994 alongside 31 other tribal colleges.
