The Tahoe-Truckee campus is located in the Sierra Nevada mountains bordering the scenic landscape communities within and around the Lake Tahoe basin. The Lake Tahoe basin is world-renowned for its beauty and unlimited outdoor activities, attracting millions of visitors year-round. It is considered the number one destination lake in the country.

We serve students in Truckee and its outlying areas, and the communities of the North and West Shores of Lake Tahoe, including Tahoe City, Kings Beach, Homewood and Tahoma.

Truckee is a historically rich mountain town with its memorable role in the building of the transcontinental railroad through the Sierra. Ever active and pure, the Truckee River entices many fisherman, rafters, and hikers throughout the warm seasons. Cool pristine alpine lakes and forested trails nestled within our mountains offer endless, magnificent vistas and are a source of year-round recreation for locals and visitors alike.


The Tahoe-Truckee campus is designed to serve a student body of approximately 1,000, delivering quality education through smaller class sizes and closer relationships to faculty. Students are offered a broad array of general education courses and many attend with the goal of transferring to CSU, UC, or private schools. Student services include a learning resource library, tutoring, academic counseling, administration and faculty office hours.

Signature programs include Social and Behavioral Sciences, Psychology, Business Accounting, Business Administration and Natural Sciences Transfer Programs. Growing and emerging programs include Administration of Justice and Mechatronics.

Career and technical education programs include Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Accounting and Business services, Mechatronics, and Human Development.


The communities of this region share a passion for sustainability and economic, environmental and cultural influences have shaped the development of our academic and co-curricular activities. The Tahoe-Truckee campus has strong ties with community organizations that support sustainability and is initiating student internship programs. Our Business, Art and ECOS clubs serve as a bridge between academic principles and real world applications, providing an innovative approach to higher education and community service. Tahoe-Truckee campus students enjoy the advantage of learning through involvement with local community organizations.
