Welcome and thank you for your interest in Ingram State Technical College.
ISTC holds a unique place among two-year colleges in the Alabama Community College System, serving a student population comprised exclusively of incarcerated individuals. ISTC provides technical training in 18 career fields, GED preparation and testing, and job placement assistance to men and women from six correctional facilities. ISTC has also been the provider of educational services at the Alabama Therapeutic Education Facility in Columbiana since 2008.
A 2013 study by the RAND Corporation shows that incarcerated individuals who participate in high-quality correctional education like those provided by Ingram State Technical College are 43 percent less likely to return to prison within three years. Ingram graduates not only learn technical and soft skills, they experience – some for the first time – the satisfaction of accomplishing a personal goal while preparing for success in the workplace.
The vision of ISTC is to lead the nation in providing high quality correctional educational programs, promoting activities to reduce recidivism, increasing public safety, and sustaining fiscal accountability for the citizenry of Alabama.
