Prince William Sound Community College was originally established in 1971 as an extension site of the University of Alaska. Initially, two learning centers were established in Valdez and Cordova. A third center was opened in Copper Basin in 1976. In July of 1978, these three centers were granted community college status and combined to form PWSCC. The main campus of the college is located in Valdez, Alaska.
Prince William Sound Community College awards Associate of Arts and Associate of Applied Science degrees in the areas of humanities, natural sciences, mathematics, and social sciences. The college also offers bachelor's degree programs in business administration, human services, science, and technology. In addition, several certificate programs and distance learning options are also available at PWSCC.
The college supports a number of clubs and organizations, including Phi Theta Kappa, the Multicultural Student Association, and the Archery Club.
