Greetings from Fort Peck Community College! As the first chartered tribal college in Montana, we are proud to be a quality institution offering educational, cultural, and economic opportunities to the communities of northeastern Montana.

FPCC is a fully accredited tribal college with faculty and staff who are well-qualified and caring. As an open enrollment institution, we offer both two year degree programs and vocational programs unique to our state. We partner with numerous agencies, organizations, tribal entities, businesses, schools, and universities to deliver educational programs to youth and adults to serve as your key to lifelong learning. With campuses in both Poplar and Wolf Point, FPCC is able to connect to individuals who seek to better themselves in a positive and affordable way.

From Circle to Scobey, from Hindsdale to Bainville, and from Sidney to Opheim, and points in between, FPCC provides higher education, employment and career opportunities, workforce training, and cultural services to anyone interested in pursuing a college degree or in taking a single class for enjoyment.

Please take time to view the students and alumni featured in our Stories of Academic Success, as well the other departments.
