Salish Kootenai College

Salish Kootenai College (SKC) is a Native American tribal college based in Pablo, Montana which serves the Bitterroot Salish, Kootenai, and Pend d'Oreilles tribes. There are approximately 1,100 students attending the college; enrollment is not limited to Native American students.

Prior to 1978, it was a branch campus of Flathead Valley Community College (FVCC). In 1981, the college formally disassociated itself from FVCC and became completely self-governing. It is member of the American Indian Higher Education Consortium.

SKC offers 7 Bachelor's degree programs, 13 Associate degree programs, and 7 certificate programs. Most of the degree programs are career-oriented, though students can elect to take courses of study in fields such as the liberal arts and Native American Studies.
