Spokane Falls Community College (SFCC) is a public community college in Spokane, Washington. It was established in 1967 and is part of the Community Colleges of Spokane.

SFCC has programs for students seeking an associate degree, with 66 percent of SFCC students preparing to transfer to four-year institutions. SFCC also has a career-technical degree and certificate programs, including orthotic/prosthetic technician, hearing instrument specialist, physical therapist assistant, and occupational therapy assistant. SFCC is considered[by whom?] a center of visual and performing arts, with programs in drama, music, fine art, photography, and graphic design. The campus has a close working relationship with the Mukogawa Fort Wright Institute branch of Mukogawa Women's University, a higher education facility for students from Japan studying in the U.S.,[1] and has education centers at Fairchild Air Force Base, and in Pullman, Washington.

The college publishes The Communicator, a bi-weekly student newspaper, as well as Communicator Online.[2] The latter was a 2009 Associated Collegiate Press Online Pacemaker winner and has placed among the top ten two-year college newspapers in North America in the last four years.[citation needed]

Athletics

SFCC partners with Spokane Community College as the Community Colleges of Spokane, using the team name the Sasquatch. They compete in the Northwest Athletic Conference (NWAC). The official colors are blue and gold.
