Fort Peck Community College (FPCC), a tribally-controlled community college, was chartered by the Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes of the Fort Peck Reservation in 1978.
Educational and support services are available and tailored to the needs of 11,000 residents of the rural, northeastern Montana reservation. FPCC was granted full accreditation by the Northwest Commission of Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) in December 1991.
This accreditation was reaffirmed following an Interim Report and site visit in 2006, and allows FPCC to continue to offer a variety of certificates, associates, and inter-college bachelor’s degrees. Additionally, FPCC was granted full accreditation by the World Indigenous Nations Higher Education Consortium (WINHEC) in 2009. Also, as a 1994 United Stated Department of Agriculture Land Grant Institution, FPCC has successfully administered agriculture education and research programs responding to local problems and opportunities.
