Southeast Community College has been operating in its current structure since July 1, 1973, when a statewide community college system was implemented by the Legislature.
However, the campus in 米尔福德港 existed long before then. The first postsecondary technical institution, exclusively offering two-year postsecondary degrees in vocational/technical programs, was established by the Nebraska Unicameral in 1941 at 米尔福德港. Operated by the Nebraska Department of 教育, the school was originally established to meet the occupational education needs of the entire state.
In 1971, the Legislature passed a bill which combined junior colleges (Fairbury, 成立于1941年, 在SCC范围内), 国家职业技术学院, and the area technical schools into one system of two-year institutions. The consolidation originally established eight technical community college areas. The number was reduced to six when 林肯 merged with Southeast in 1973.
目前林肯校区位于O街8800号. 始于1979年. Prior to that, the College operated in a number of properties throughout 林肯.
In 1975, SCC took over the 比阿特丽斯 campus of John J. Pershing College, which opened in 1966 and closed in 1971. In 1980, the agriculture program was relocated from the 米尔福德学校 to 比阿特丽斯. In 1986, Fairbury Junior College was closed and operations moved to 比阿特丽斯. Since 1986, SCC has added a number of facilities and land to its 正规博彩十大网站排名. The 林肯大学 also has continued to grow, as has 米尔福德港. Today, nearly 10,000 students enroll in credit classes at SCC.
