Carl Albert State College

Carl Albert State College, commonly abbreviated as CASC, is a community college located in southeastern Oklahoma. Originally named "Poteau Junior College", it was founded in 1933, and its name changed to "Poteau Community College" in the early 1950s. In 1971, it was renamed in honor of then Speaker of the House Carl Albert. Its primary campus is located in Poteau, Oklahoma, but there are smaller campuses in Sallisaw, Oklahoma and Idabel, Oklahoma. The college was recently recognized as the sixth fastest growing two-year college in the United States. It enrolls approximately 3,300 students annually. Its student-faculty ratio is about 15-1.


Carl Albert Stage College offers over 28 different academic degree programs, both terminal and transfer. The programs include: Business Administration, Art, Music, Telecommunications, Mathematics, Pre-Engineering, Pre-Medicine, Nursing (from which program graduates may qualify to become Registered Nurses), Physical Therapist Assistant, and others. Through a cooperative agreement between CASC and East Central University, students can also earn bachelor's degrees and master's degrees on the CASC campus through a combination of on-campus and Interactive TV classes. CASC also has partnerships with Franklin University, Northeastern State University, Southeastern Oklahoma State University, and Mid-America Christian University, offering a number of bachelor's degree programs through a combination of Web-based classes and ITV (Interactive Television) classes.

There are six dormitories and over 31 student-run organizations, emphasizing interests in journalism, literature, athletics, academics, culture, drama, and more. Students are given free high speed internet access as well as free access to the school's computer lab.


The school's sports teams are called the Vikings. The mascot had been the Trojans for some time until the early 1990s when the switch was made. The change to Vikings better reflects the area's numerous Runestones purportedly left behind by Nordic explorers. The school engages in collegiate baseball, softball, basketball, and dance.
