About SRC

​Spoon River College is a two-year, public community college in West Central Illinois dedicated to providing students a quality education. Spoon River College serves 4,000 credit students per year in a 1,566 square miles area including portions of Fulton, McDonough, Mason, Schuyler and Knox counties.

Our students have a variety of educational goals and we are positioned to help meet those needs by providing:

  • First two years of college and pre-professional courses
  • Career and technical education
  • ​Business and Industry Training

Spoon River College graduates who transfer to other colleges and universities traditionally achieve higher grade point averages than students who begin their college careers at these transfer institutions. The college’s participation in the Illinois Articulation Initiative ensures that lower-division general education requirements for an associate or bachelor's degree have been satisfied.

Spoon River College offers a comfortable, quality learning environment that prepares you for success. Classes are small and you get to know your instructors well, which provides a personalized educational experience. Whether you take classes during the day, evening or online, we are confident that you will take away knowledge and skills that will help you succeed in life.​​​​​
