State Career College

State Career College is an accredited institution offering three programs in the medical industry.

State Career College was established in May 2007 in Waukegan, Illinois. We are institutionally accredited by the ABHES (Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools) and is approved by the "Division of Private Business and Vocational Schools of the Illinois Board of Higher Education". The objectives to fulfill the mission of State Career College are: To train the graduate in a specialized and well-designed program for entry-level positions in a dental office, physician’s office, clinic or other medical setting. To ensure that the training and education provided is facilitated by an experienced and well- qualified faculty who strive to not only educate and motivate students, but also push the boundaries of learning. To provide students with practical knowledge and education that will prepare them for their chosen career. To uphold a high level of employment by providing the graduate with active and continuous job development services.

Mission: State Career College is a teaching institution that not only paves the way for students to have successful careers, but also for a lifetime of growth and learning.
